BBC's Battle of the Brains

In kind of a follow on post from my last one, the BBC showed a documentary last Tuesday called Battle of the Brains which is a documentary about how we measure intelligence. It is very interesting and I suggest you watch it fullscreen through This Link.

I thought it was funny how the Academics dismissed the idea of multiple intelligences without explanatory reasoning. But anyway it seems obvious to me that measuring intelligence on a single linear scale is silly as it ignores the distinction between natural ability and learned intelligence.
