"THE INTELLIGENCES
OF HUMANITY"

August 13

Intelligences

In my article The Aspects of Humanity I delineated the four main aspects of human behavior. These aspects either react to internal cues and to the environment or initiate behaviors by the process of pro-acting. These aspects operate on repeated internal or environmental cues and subsequent reaction to those cues. Over a period of time our aspects develop intelligences in regard to those repeated behaviors. These intelligences are a result of learned and accepted behaviors.

Physical Intelligence

For example, an athlete who day after day practices their sport develops a physical intelligence in his body in regards to that sport. This has been very apparent in the Olympics recently. The 2010 Canadian Gold Medal winner of the Moguls Ski Competition, Alexandre Bilodeau, demonstrated this ability. His torso and head were completely in vertical alignment while his knees were bending and his legs were following the contour of the snow mounds on the downhill course. Athletes possess a coordination of body and mind that demonstrates their physical intelligence. Athletes exercise and focus on different parts of their bodies for their PI to develop neuro-muscular pathways. This is attained by encountering repeated resistance that, through consistent practice, slowly overcomes that resistance. This consistency carves new pathways and beliefs.

An observation made by an Olympic sportscaster detailed the mind-body connection in the following paraphrased statement: When a skier looks down on the mountain his mind says that to make the move from the top is certain suicide. But through his training and the conviction that he has done it before, he makes the move and dismisses the negative thoughts he is experiencing. Why? Because of his faith in his physical intelligence to overcome any obstacle regardless of the threat of personal safety.

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence (EI) describes the ability, capacity, skill or, in a self-perceived ability, to identify, assess, and manage the emotions of one's self, of others, and of groups (Source: Wikipedia). It is the ability to accurately perceive one’s environment or internal cues and process them effectively and intelligently without reacting based on assumptions or opinions. For example, when a child doesn’t get what they want they might respond with crying or tantrums. Why? Because they have yet to develop the emotional intelligence to manage and control their emotions.

Adults sometimes forget that they are not their emotions. Perceived threats sometimes result in violence or lashing out at others, circumstances or occurrences. A person who has mastered their emotions has developed emotional intelligence. This comes from an awareness that all events, circumstances or occurrences are not necessarily what they seem to be. In other words, EI is an understanding that the demands of the ego are not the only concern. It recognizes the needs, wants, desires and expectations of others in regards to themselves and their environments. It seeks a balance between selfishness and selflessness; between a social conscience and a personal conscience.

EI comes from years of understanding and modifying your behaviors to pro-act effectively in your environment to bring about the desires you seek and the subsequent expectations you manifest.

Mental Intelligence

Mental Intelligence is the capacities for abstract thought, reasoning, planning and problem solving, the use of language, and to learn. It includes intellectual traits such as creativity, personality, character, knowledge, and wisdom (Source: Wikipedia). MI is the ability for our brains to process information from internal physical cues and external environmental cues. These stimuli generate thoughts that we either hold on to (beliefs) or dismiss (rejections). Thoughts are chemically based electrical processes that contain perceived snapshots or graphical pictures that are copies of internal or external cues or perceptions.

Abstract thought is the ability to reason instead of emotionally reacting. Reason is the ability to observe the facts and infer the causes without opinions or prejudices. Planning is the process to map out future actions based on learned results of previous thoughts and actions and develop new thoughts and actions to accomplish goals. Problem solving is the ability to observe the facts about a perceived problem and develop solutions to overcome that problem and manifest a new and more effective result. Language is the ability to observe objects, infer archetypes and verbally express them in understandable terms based on graphical symbolism. It involves learned behavior from repeated verbal and/or graphical cues. Learning is the ability to modify your behavior through practice, training, or experience. Thoughts are the initiators to all behaviors. Thought-forms are a result of consistent beliefs and manifesting behaviors into your environment; they are a result of mastering all of the above abilities and consistently applying them in your experience.

Creativity the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships and to create original, progressive or meaningful new ideas, forms, methods or interpretations (Source: Dictionary.com); it is based on an individual’s ability to imagine other scenarios. Imagination does create reality when people utilize their creative abilities. According to Wikipedia, creativity is a mental process involving the discovery of new ideas or concepts, or new associations of the existing ideas or concepts, fueled by the process of either conscious or unconscious insight. It is also known as divergent thought (as opposed to convergent thought which uses logic). Personality is the sum total of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects manifested as the qualities and character of an individual. According to Wikipedia, personality can be defined as a dynamic and organized set of characteristics possessed by a person that uniquely influences his or her cognitions, motivations, and behaviors in various situations. Character is the aggregate of traits and qualities of an individual. It guides an individual to either protect oneself or to protect others as well as themselves. Character is the snapshot of the core values of one’s ego.

Knowledge is an awareness of the facts, truths or principles resulting from individual investigation into perceived facts of events, occurrences or other individuals. It is an understanding of learned information. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, knowledge is the expertise and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject; what is known in a particular field or in total; facts and information; or awareness or familiarity gained by experience of a fact or situation. In other words, when a person understands how to correctly use learned information they have gained knowledge. Wisdom is knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action (Source: Dictionary.com). According to Wikipedia, wisdom is a deep understanding of people, things, events or situations, empowering the ability to choose or act to consistently produce the optimum results with a minimum of time and energy. Wisdom is the ability to optimally (effectively and efficiently) apply perceptions and knowledge and so produce the desired results. Wisdom is comprehension of what is true or right coupled with optimum judgment as to action. In other words, when a person understands how to correctly use knowledge they have gained wisdom.

Character is a function of the ego. Personality is a result of your combined aspects of humanity. Creativity is a result of the ability to think out of the box. Knowledge comes from diligent study of information and wisdom comes from diligent study of knowledge. By combining your character and personality into creative thoughts and behaviors, you amplify your ability to gain knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge and wisdom are a result of mastering your mind-body connection, your emotions and your mental understanding of occurrences, events and people in your life. Knowledge and wisdom are not static. They only grow by consistently applying them in your experience.

Spiritual Intelligence

SI is the ability to see beyond logic and reason into realms of thought that most reactive people don’t see. According to Wikipedia, Spiritual Intelligence is a term used to discern a suite or set of propensities comprising: perceptions, intuitions, cognitions, etc., related to spirituality and/or religiosity, especially spiritual capital. Spiritual capital is a concept that involves the quantification of the value to individuals, groups and society of spiritual, moral or psychological beliefs and practices.

Your spiritual intelligence is based on your values. What are your values? They are the relative worth, merit, or importance of your thoughts and behaviors. If your thoughts and/or behaviors provide positive outcomes for you, then they are good and reflect good values. However, they are still relative and of a personal or cultural status that is subjective to experience and absolute values. Absolute values are independent of an individual or cultural viewpoint; they are objective in nature. It is the same regardless of individual experience. Your personal and cultural values are the initiation to a deeper awareness and understanding of absolute values; that your choices and the intensity in which you manifest those choices are absolute, whether they are considered negative or positive. In other words, you personal values determine your recognition of the fact that your expressions in the environment have an absolute value. The results you obtain for being selfish will be different than the results you obtain if you are magnanimous.

Spirituality

In Spirituality, God or the universe is the source of everything and the benchmark of absolute value. Emulating the behaviors of creation from God and the universe is the ultimate model for us. There is no waste. There is only abundance. If you cannot see this, then you need to adjust your personal values to recognize these facts. Then, and only then, can you ever hope to manifest your deepest desires and dreams. Align your intelligences with the absolute values demonstrated in God’s universe. Model those behaviors and reap the rewards you so richly deserve. Get out of your own way!
