earl grey: wowowow! Black... Science... trade 1 !!! jonjeny: @MattyyTaylorXx any link? Vien Vu: Isn't this the Cameron Sino battery, not the Mugen. Either way, is the battery performance any good? Jeremy Battle: What IQ tests don't probe, is individual differences in real-time selecting and ordering of components, which in turn, accounts for differences in intuitive problem solving. IQ tests are based on a linear processing paradigm; For example, seeing the pattern in a linear string like, 6, 18, 12, 24. But one can object, and it has been objected formally, that establishing such a relationship depends on existent properties (the string of numbers which the test-maker created), and not any free selection from the reasoner himself. So it takes less intelligence (not to mention that it is less 'abstract') to see the pattern in a string of numbers, then it does if the pattern had to be constructed freely (or for example, to realize, that the heavier the bird, the larger the wingspan). IQ tests are biased, because they don't have any concern with the type of connections that people are making. It assumes everyone the same when it comes to selection of elements, but in fact, there are individual differences in implicit learning, heuristics, which play a role in high level problem solving. Some of the world's greatest thought experiments depend on how seemingly unrelated elements were pulled together (eg Einsteins relativity, Galileo) . In thought experiments, you CHOOSE the elements and then analyze the system, in 2, 4, 6, 8, X, the elements are already chosen, and everything just depends on analysis. In the absence of spatial and temporal cues, selection is important, and adds a component of novelty in creating a relationship. Of course, in more basic relationships selection depends on only on categorical selection and associative memory (simple, but very important component), but in more and more complex problems, which can typically only be found in mathematics, physics, and some other fields (sorry common folk, that level of complexity rarely exists in everyday type thinking) , the brain depends, additionally on, extremely high fluency in parallel processing. For example, if one is holding x=4, and also processing Y = 3 + x , the value for y cannot be determined, unless x=4 is maintained in memory. But this type of maintenance and shifting between elements of thought, is distinct from the processes that are involved in the small capacity of working memory (IQ component). And until the intelligentsia, are over-whelmed with a impending deeper theoretical basis of computation, heuristics and intuition, conventional IQ tests will remain measures of 'intelligence'; a type of glorified short-term memory test, with a lengthy track-record among privileged class. "There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance." Albert Einstein Roy Hermsen: plz don't touch the sync, you can hear it later in your record Brett Church: I don't think I can watch this unless Will apologizes and gives back your money. Mama's gone detecting: Ged, have you ever tried doing rubbings of your coins to try and see the details better? I have not tried it with coins but have done it on old cemetery head stones and it does work for that. Just put your coin under a piece of blank white paper and rub over it with the side of a crayon. See if you can see the details better.
