Abstract : Current research and theories of intelligence support the existence of a social or practical intelligence. The authors of this report adopt components of the triarchic theory of social and practical intelligence and view the ability to acquire tacit social knowledge as a function of general intelligence, the ability to perceive and learn subtle social information and contingencies, and the ability to accurately interpret and combine this information. This theory raises several counterintuitive predictions that are discussed in the report.
