If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
Many scientists agree with the idea that intelligence capabilities should not be evaluated only in tests for solving new problems is because it has been proven that intelligence is also manifested in our abilities to solve the most diverse issues, such as:
- The ability to tolerate and overcome frustrations.
- Lead long-term projects.
- Adaptation to new circumstances of life-modifying our habits towards new skills more in line with these new challenges.
- Do not collapse before the first shakes we receive, and if we do, know that we can re-create from scratch as many times as necessary.
- Plan a life in contexts of continuous welfare states.
- Each time we learn, we produce new neural connections that expand our network of creative possible applications.
- No age should limit new learning. No age, nor any circumstance should prevent us from stimulating the development of potential intelligence and the acquisition of new skills.
- While it is a property of our brain to have greater flexibility at an early age, we can also stimulate our brain to learn new tasks, even at any age.
