How are you intelligent?

Ken Robinson is a British educator, writer and speaker, expert in matters related to creativity, quality of education, innovation and human resources. Doctor at London University since 1981, he was knighted by Queen Isabel II of England in 2003, for the relevance of his activities in the study of the relationship between education and art. Currently he is an emeritus professor at Warwick University, United Kingdom.

He is known for his revealing work on ideas such as the importance of creativity in education and the development of an individual’s capacities and talents for a better development of his or her potential. Self knowledge and the improvement of the relationship between the individual and his or her environment, like being active and  agent  of change, are for the professor ways to a improve the welfare of the individuals  and the world they live in, from the most immediate environment to the whole planet Earth.

This video, How are you intelligent?, has been created by The Inspiration Journey from a fragment of a Ken Robinson’s speech named The world we explore that took place at the summit of Zeitgeist Americas 2012. The authors invite us to think about his talk: the importance of creativity and intelligence, not in its quantity but in how we use it, and the key role that it plays in our welfare and our environment. And also, how the way to find an authentic balance between these parts of the whole —our inside world, who we are and the planet we live in and share— lies in education.

Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher. Financial crisis, moral crisis, even scam. It has written extensively on the causes and characteristics of the crisis plaguing the Western world, and indeed on any crisis: Carl Gustav Jung, the famous Swiss psychiatrist, came to say that 'every crisis is a fracture in the collective unconscious of the species that allows the emergence of a new paradigm of awareness'. Alex Rovira —writer, economist and lecturer— performs an introduction on the subject that gives way to five roundtables —on economy, politics, philosophy, technology and culture— and raises a question: 'What can do each of us, no matter how small it may be, to improve the situation?'.

Los investigadores pidieron a unos estudiantes que participasen en una 'prueba de visión' en la que debían comparar la longitud de una serie de líneas impresas en un papel. Todos los participantes estaban compinchados excepto uno, y en realidad el experimento consistía en observar cómo éste reaccionaba frente al comportamiento de los demás como grupo. El experimento se repitió con 123 protagonistas diferentes y los resultados revelaron que si los compañeros acertaban la respuesta, el sujeto fallaba solamente el 1% de las veces, mientras que si optaban por la respuesta errónea de manera unánime, el sujeto se dejaba llevar por la aplastante mayoría y escogía la misma respuesta que ellos en casi un 37% de los casos, aún siendo consciente de que su elección no encajaba con la realidad que estaba observando.In order to analyze how we humans can adapt our views to the group to which we belong, the American psychologist Solomon Asch, a pioneer in social psychology, conducted in 1951 a series of experiments showing how an individual is capable of change his mind because of social pressure and, the more surprising, do it voluntarily and denying the evidence. The researchers asked some students to participate in an 'visual perception test' on you had to compare the length of a number of lines printed on a paper. All participants were in cahoots except one, and in fact the real experiment was to see his reaction to the behavior of others as a group. The experiment was repeated with 123 different protagonists and the results revealed that if the answers of his partners were correct, the subject failed only 1% of the time, whereas if they chose the wrong answer unanimously, the individual was swayed by the overwhelmingly majority in almost 37% of cases, even being aware that his choice did not fit with the reality he was watching.
