Intelligence and How To Get It

November 8, 2014 With Richard Nisbet

Psychologists have argued for a century or more over these questions: What is intelligence? How is it distributed within varied populations? Is it genetically determined? Can it be affected by education, by personality, mood and, for that matter, diet?  Nisbet, an eminent social psychologist, joined us to give his research-based answers to those and other questions in this conversation from 2009.
