Triarchic theory of intelligence is the work of the American psychologist Robert J. Sternberg. The theory predicts the existence of three components of intelligence:
- Analytical intelligence - applies primarily in problem solving with which the individual has met in the past
- Creative intelligence - applies especially in the original (new) solving of new types of problems - it is closely linked with creativity
- Practical intelligence - applies particularly in problems of a social nature, and daily problems (related to social intelligence and emotional intelligence)
Use of the multiple intelligence theory in practice: In human resources management it is used in job creation and staffing - in job analysis. The individual components are relatively independent of each other. During various work tasks and activities, different forms of intelligence apply in different degrees.
