In today's episode, I speak with Dr. Rina Bliss, a leading expert on the nature of intelligence and its cultural significance. Dr. Bliss, who is a professor of sociology at Rutgers University, has spent over a decade researching the misconceptions surrounding intelligence and its assessment. In her latest book, Rethinking Intelligence: A Radical New Understanding of Our Human Potential, Dr. Bliss challenges the conventional wisdom that intelligence is a fixed, innate trait determined solely by genetics. Drawing on cutting-edge research, as well as her own experiences as a mother and a sociologist, she argues that intelligence is a complex and dynamic process shaped by a range of factors, including stress, connection, play, and mindfulness. Join us as we delve into the fascinating world of intelligence and its cultural significance. Dr. Bliss' hope is that this episode challenges us to rethink what we know about ourselves, our children and our human potential.
