One concept that I found very interesting that I will remember in five years is the Triarchic Model. This model shows the existence of three types of intelligences. The first one is analytical intelligence. This is known as "book smarts". This type of intelligence is the ability to reason logically. Many believe this is the most crucial of the three. The second is practical intelligence, also known as "street smarts". This intelligence is very close to social intelligence, or the ability to understand other people. The third and final intelligence of the Triarchic Model is creative intelligence. This is one's ability to be creative. This type of intelligence helps us find new solutions to problems.
This year I will be joining the working world with my first full-time job. It is important to know this model because it will helps me figure out what type of intelligence I possess and what my other coworkers have. Knowing this will aid me in making decisions at work. Whether it is assembling teams or knowing whom to approach when needing advice the Triarchic Model can help. An example would be when you need to ask someone at work how to complete a mathematical problem. You would probably bring the problem to a person with high analytical intelligence before a person with high practical or creative intelligence.
