Abstract

That people have a quantifiable amount of intelligence has been established for some time. Methods of how to measure it and what exactly is being measured have fascinated psychologists, educationalists and laypeople for some time. It is also now accepted that social skills/emotional intelligence can be assessed, although probably not with the same kind of precision that observers have expected when measuring intelligence. But what about the ability to learn effectively and efficiently. Is it possible to measure in a quantifiable way an individual’s learning potential: their ability to learn new things, their “learnability”, their learning quotient?
