General intelligence refers to our ability to learn new information and retain information from the past (Cattell, 1963). It is a construct derived from psychometric research of human intellect and our cognitive capacities, and it is not a scientific concept. Generally speaking, general intelligence is comprised of connections between diverse cognitive activities that may be divided into two sections (Cattell, 1971). There are two types of intelligence: fluid intelligence and crystallized intellect.
crystallized intelligence both questions and extends what was originally thought to be a single construct of general intelligence.
crystallized intelligence was initially proposed by psychologist Raymond B.
He asserted that fluid intelligence and crystallized intellect are two types of general intelligence that can exist simultaneously.
He then went on to identify the second component as one that was heavily invested in the development of crystallized abilities.
John Leonard Horn, a cognitive psychologist and former student of Cattell’s, went on to further develop the notions of fluid intelligence and crystallized intelligence (HornCattell, 1967).
Fluid intelligence is the ability to think quickly and reason flexibly in order to solve new issues without depending on previous experience or collected information. It is often referred to as “adaptive reasoning.” When we have fluid intelligence, we are able to recognize and infer links between variables, as well as grasp abstract knowledge, which helps us to solve problems more effectively. Essential skills such as understanding and learning are connected with this trait. To paraphrase Raymond Cattell (1967), perceptual independence refers to the ability to “perceive relationships irrespective of past particular experience or teaching relating to those relationships.” For example, solving puzzles, devising ways to deal with new challenges, seeing patterns in statistical data, and engaging in speculative philosophical reasoning are all examples of the application of fluid intelligence in the workplace (Unsworth, Fukuda, AwhVogel, 2014).
He pointed out that fluid intelligence is formless and relies only little on acculturation and past learning, which encompasses both formal and informal education, as demonstrated by Horn (1969).
As a result, according to Horn, one’s capacity to solve abstract issues, as well as to participate in figural analyses and classifications, is reliant on one’s level of fluid intelligence (Horn, 1968).
The reduction of fluid intelligence is likely to be associated with the decline of neurological functioning, but it may also be associated with the fact that it is utilized less frequently as people become older.
Recent study, on the other hand, calls into question earlier ideas and implies that certain aspects of fluid intelligence may not reach their peak until as late as age forty.
Crystallized Intelligence is the capacity to make use of abilities and information that have been acquired via past learning (Horn, 1969). The use of crystallized intelligence necessitates the recollection of previously acquired knowledge as well as abilities. For example, recalling historical events and dates, remembering geographical places, expanding one’s vocabulary, and reciting poetry writings are all examples of how Crystallized Intelligence may be put to use (Horn, 1968). Crystallized Intelligence is the outcome of acquired information, which includes the ability to think, linguistic abilities, and a working grasp of technology.
The use of crystallized intelligence necessitates the recollection of previously acquired knowledge as well as abilities.
“Crystallized Intelligence,” according to Horn (1969), is a “precipitate out of experience” that arises from an earlier application of fluid intelligence.
Crystallized Intelligence increases steadily and remains consistent throughout adulthood, except for a brief period beyond the age of 60, when it begins to drop (CavanaughBlanchard-Fields, 2006).
How the Intelligence Types Work Together
While fluid intelligence and crystallized intelligence are two separate concepts, it is crucial to recognize the wide range of activities that may be accomplished using both of these components. For example, when taking a math test, one may rely on one’s fluid intelligence to devise a plan for responding to the questions that are presented within the time frame that has been set. However, it is possible that one will be required to use one’s Crystallized Intelligence to recollect multiple mathematical ideas and theories in order to provide the proper answers at the same time.
However, in order to create a product that meets market demand, it may be necessary to draw on previous experience and, as a result, to employ her Crystallized Intelligence.
The investment of fluid intelligence via the acquisition of new knowledge, on the other hand, results in the production of Crystallized Intelligence.
In other words, the critical analysis of situations through the use of fluid intelligence generates and transmits knowledge to long-term memory, which is a component of crystallized intelligence.
Measurements of Fluid Intelligence
- The differences between fluid intelligence and crystallized intelligence are crucial to recognize, but it is also vital to recognize the wide range of activities that may be accomplished using both of these components simultaneously. For example, when taking a math test, one may rely on one’s fluid intelligence to devise a plan for responding to the questions that are presented within the time frame that has been set out. It is possible, however, that one will be required to use one’s Crystallized Intelligence to recollect numerous mathematical ideas and theories in order to provide the appropriate answers. Entrepreneurs may also be required to employ their fluid intelligence in order to uncover new opportunities in the market. Although she has Crystallized Intelligence, she may be required to use it if she is to create a product that will suit the needs of the market. Despite this obvious interdependence, Crystallized Intelligence is not a sort of fluid intelligence that has crystallized through time as some have claimed (Cherry, 2018). Crystallized Intelligence, on the other hand, is produced by the investment of fluid intelligence through the acquisition of fresh knowledge. Instead, the critical analysis of issues performed by fluid intelligence generates and transmits information to long-term memory, which is a component of crystallized intelligence (see Figure 1).
Measurements of Crystallized Intelligence
- A text completion exam, first suggested as a foreign language competence test, the C-Test is an integrative measure of crystallized intelligence that may be used to assess a wide range of abilities (Baghaei,Tabatabaee-Yazdi, 2015). The C-underlying Test’s construct correlates to the abilities that underpin the language component of crystallized intelligence, which are measured by the C-Test. The C-Test, however, may also be able to test the factual knowledge component of crystallized intelligence, according to studies, if texts from relevant categories of knowledge are carefully selected. The Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) measures a person’s general intelligence. There are five performance subtests and six verbal subtests in the updated edition of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale, which has been in use since 1981 and has been altered several times since then (KaufmanLichtenberger 2006). Reading comprehension, knowledge retention, digit span, vocabulary, and similarities are all included in these verbal assessments (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised). Generally speaking, most of these verbal exams are regarded as being capable of testing crystallized intellect.
Can Fluid Intelligence Be Improved?
Education and experience are widely considered to boost crystallized intelligence because crystalline intelligence is known to develop over time and remain stable with age. This is because crystallized intelligence is known to improve overtime and remain stable with age (CavanaughBlanchard-Fields, 2006). The approach to fluid intelligence, on the other hand, has been marked by its intricacy. There has previously been widespread belief that fluid intelligence is static, is heavily governed by hereditary factors, and as a result, cannot be changed.
During various studies done by psychologist Susanne M.
At the conclusion of the term, it was noticed that the fluid intelligence of the participants had increased significantly.
Jaeggi’s findings, on the other hand, have neither been confirmed nor disproved by further research.

A Prera is a woman who lives in India (2020, Oct 26). Intellect that is fluid vs intelligence that is crystallized. Simply Psychology (describes fluid crystallized intelligence as follows:
What Are Fluid Intelligence and Crystallized Intelligence?
What comes to mind when you think about intelligence? What types of things come to mind? Intelligence is more than just a collection of information; it is a way of thinking. It also includes the capacity to pick up new skills and knowledge. When it comes to identifying the many methods in which humans acquire and use information, psychologists have a variety of terminologies that they employ.
Different Types of Intelligence
Having a broad range of knowledge about a variety of things may come to mind when you think about intellectual ability. However, you could also take into consideration rapid thinking and the capacity to reason. These types of characteristics constitute what psychologists refer to as fluid intelligence and crystallized intellect, respectively. The capacity to reason and think in a flexible manner is referred to as fluid intelligence. It is the collection of information, facts, and abilities that has accumulated during a person’s lifetime that is referred to as crystallized intelligence.
While evidence shows that fluid intelligence tends to decline after adolescence, crystallized intelligence continues to improve throughout adulthood, the opposite is also true.
The Cattell-Horn theory of fluid and crystallized intelligence proposes that intelligence is made up of a variety of talents that interact and work together to generate overall individual intelligence in the form of overall individual intelligence.
In his definition of fluid intelligence, Cattell stated that it is “the capacity to recognize relationships independently of past explicit experience or teaching about those links.” The ability to think and reason abstractly, as well as solve issues, is referred to as fluid intelligence. This capacity is seen as being independent of learning, experience, and education, among other things. For example, solving riddles and coming up with problem-solving solutions are both examples of how fluid intelligence is put to work.
When you come into a situation that is completely new to you and cannot be handled with your current knowledge, you must rely on fluid intelligence to help you solve it.
During late adulthood, fluid intelligence has a tendency to deteriorate. Certain cognitive abilities related with fluid intelligence tend to deteriorate as people age and enter later adulthood, according to research.
Crystallized intelligence is comprised of information that has been gained via prior learning and previous experiences. Reading comprehension and vocabulary examinations are examples of situations in which crystallized intelligence is required. Crystallized intellect is founded on facts and is anchored on personal experience and reflection. As we grow older and gain more information and insight, our crystallized intellect grows in strength and power. As you might assume, this sort of intelligence tends to increase with age, as with other types of intelligence.
Differences and Interrelationship
Is there a tendency for one of these elements to be more important? When it comes to ordinary life, both components of intellect are equally significant. For example, when taking a psychology test, you may be required to utilize fluid intelligence to devise a strategy for solving a statistics issue, while you may also be required to use crystallized intelligence to recollect the specific formulae you will need to apply to answer the problem. Combined with its counterpart, crystallized intelligence, both fluid intelligence and crystallized intelligence constitute what Cattell referred to as “general intelligence.” While fluid intelligence refers to our present capacity to reason and deal with the complicated information that surrounds us, crystallized intelligence refers to the learning, knowledge, and abilities that are acquired over the course of a person’s lifetime.
While crystalline intelligence is sometimes referred to as such, it is not a type of fluid intelligence that has been “crystallized.” Instead, the two elements of general intelligence are believed to be different and distinct from one another.
When knowledge is learnt, crystallized intelligence is generated as a result of the investment of fluid intelligence in the process.
Changes in Intelligence
Intelligence, both fluid and crystallized, changes over the course of a person’s life, with different mental capacities peaking at different times. Although it has long been assumed that fluid intelligence peaks at a young age, new study released in 2015 reveals that some characteristics of fluid intelligence may peak as late as the age of 40. While crystallized intelligence does tend to peak later in life, it usually does so around the age of 60 or 70. Consider the following points on fluid and crystallized intelligence:
- Throughout childhood and adolescence, both forms of intelligence continue to develop. Throughout adulthood, crystallized intelligence continues to develop and improve. Many components of fluid intelligence reach their zenith throughout adolescence and tend to deteriorate gradually beyond the age of thirty or forty.
It is undeniably true that crystallized intellect may be developed via education and experience. The greater the amount of collected information you have, the greater the amount of crystallized intellect you will have. Furthering your education, whether formally or informally, is something that will benefit you if you are looking to improve this part of your intellect. Until recently, fluid intelligence was considered to be a concept that could not be changed. According to recent research, brain training may be effective in improving certain components of fluid intelligence in older persons.
- As a result, it was believed that our intelligence was mostly controlled by heredity and that training programs focused at raising intelligence had a limited effect on improving intelligence.
- Unlike long-term memory, which is concerned with preserving facts and information over an extended period of time, working memory is a type of short-term memory that is concerned with whatever you are now considering.
- The fact that someone may increase their working memory performance by doing certain tasks makes logical, as long as the tasks are precise.
- Overall, training may enable a person to participate in the abstraction of thoughts and ideas as easily as they would be able to use knowledge-based reasoning in a given situation.
In the long run, seeking out new knowledge helps you develop your crystallized intelligence, but pushing yourself with new experiences can help you develop your fluid intelligence as well.
A Word From Verywell
Participants in research studies are often required to complete extensive and demanding brain training exercises over a short period of time. This does not rule out the possibility of using the same approaches to your own situation. The fundamental fundamentals remain the same. Seek for fresh and challenging situations. Continually following the same old processes will not result in increased intellect. Continue to study new things and to discover new things in your life as you go. Take on the challenge of learning a new language.
Travel to a new place and get to know the people and culture there.

The Indeed Editorial Team contributed to this article. 15th of December, 2021 Cultural intelligence is defined as the capacity to relate to others and communicate effectively with people from different backgrounds. Because our global economy is changing at a rapid pace, knowing the influence of cultural intelligence may provide you with a competitive advantage in the workplace. Cultural intelligence is discussed in this article, including its influence on the workplace and how to promote cultural intelligence inside your own organization, among other things.
What is cultural intelligence in the workplace?
Because major corporations frequently function on a worldwide basis, employees must be able to adapt to the many cultural backgrounds of their coworkers. Similarly to emotional intelligence, cultural intelligence includes putting the interests, sentiments, and emotions of others into a broader historical and cultural framework. The ability to understand and swiftly adjust to behaviors that are different from your own is what cultural intelligence is all about, according to its definition.
Why is cultural intelligence important in the workplace?
In the workplace, the idea is to collaborate with your coworkers in order to reach a shared objective. As a result, multinational corporations rely on their staff to demonstrate a high level of cultural intelligence and to adopt a multicultural perspective. Using the example above, a company with a desire to expand may attempt to hire individuals who have greater cultural intelligence since they are more likely to adjust to new situations. This talent is a tool that the organization may use to achieve its objectives in a competitive and international market environment.
Additional arguments for the importance of cultural intelligence in the workplace include the following:
It creates harmony
Team members develop compassion and sensitivity to differing viewpoints and perspectives as a result of increasing their cultural intelligence. It is easier to be productive at work when coworkers are adaptable and can integrate into one other’s cultures. When coworkers are adaptive and can assimilate into each other’s cultures, they may build a culture of harmony. Moreover, leaders that possess a high level of cultural intelligence may find it simpler to forge strong bonds within their teams.
For example, team-building activities can assist members to recognize and appreciate one other’s talents and shortcomings, allowing them to work together to solve challenges more effectively.
It improves communication
Particularly in big organizations with a diverse range of cultural backgrounds and personalities, cultural intelligence is an essential component of efficient workplace communication and collaboration. When it comes to professional communication, it is important to consider how conduct is interpreted in a new environment. A team that is culturally knowledgeable will be able to communicate more effectively and understand one other more readily, resulting in fewer miscommunications. Components of Effective Workplace Communication is a related article.
It expands innovation
A company’s capacity to discover chances for innovation, such as creating and implementing new tactics to market a product in a new region, is critical to the success of the organization. People that have cultural intelligence will be better suited for adapting to a changing population, and they will also create an environment in which everyone feels secure enough to express their thoughts. Creativity in the Workplace: Characteristics and Examples is a related article.
It builds rapport with customers and investors
Global partners, consumers, investors, and outsourced divisions are more likely to have a solid connection with someone who has a great understanding of cultural differences. If you are negotiating with investors from a variety of various backgrounds, having a high degree of cultural intelligence is a benefit, and it may aid in the development of long-term connections with important business partners. Acknowledging the cultural perspectives of your clients and business partners might assist you in gaining their confidence.
It encourages healthy competition
As globalization transforms the globe into a more dynamic and competitive business environment, firms that embrace cultural diversity are more likely to attract new business and top-tier employees. Rather of selecting simply from local applicants, firms may boost their chances of obtaining the top personnel with high cultural intelligence by encouraging applicants to apply from across cultures rather than only from domestic applicants. This increased variety enhances a company’s success while competing in the global market by increasing confidence in contacts with customers and suppliers outside of the company’s home market.
The components of cultural intelligence
Using cultural intelligence requires the use of a diverse range of abilities. There are three basic components of cultural intelligence, and it is the combination of these three components that is necessary for anybody to be able to practice cultural intelligence effectively. These three components are:
It is beneficial to learn the fundamentals of other cultures in order to interact and participate in a multicultural society.
It is necessary to utilize your cognitive talents to watch and assess the behaviour of your coworkers in order to do this. This component of cultural intelligence comprises the capacity to perceive and comprehend a new culture, and then, change your behavior and approach.
This is the capacity to reciprocate gestures in order to demonstrate that you understand and can communicate within the cultures of other people. Physical clues are used differently in different cultures. Your behaviors are activating the physical component of cultural intelligence, which you may do by reciprocating their actions.
Individuals who are culturally intelligent must be able to persevere in the face of failure and learn from their mistakes. Personal efforts and self-determination are used in this component to engage other individuals in a cooperative endeavour. Putting your newly gained cultural knowledge into practice is the most effective approach to ensure that you succeed in a business negotiation or have a successful encounter in a different cultural situation. After a difficult contact with someone from a foreign culture, the goal is to continue refining and increasing in self-assurance.
How to encourage cultural intelligence in the workplace
Cultural intelligence must be practiced by all employees in order to create a cohesive, competitive, and compassionate working environment. Follow these actions to create an environment where cultural intelligence is valued at work:
1. Accept everyone’s unique opinions
The ability to observe and sympathize with a colleague via the use of cultural intelligence makes it simpler to interact with them on a variety of levels. Culturally intelligent individuals are also receptive to a wide range of recommendations, opinions, and advice from a diverse range of people, each of whom has their own unique set of skills and abilities.
2. Strive to learn more
It is as crucial to enhance your cultural intelligence in the workplace, just as it is to learn diverse skills such as stress management, self-motivation, and emotional intelligence. To get better at this, you can take a cultural intelligence exam, engage and observe people in their environments. Learning about and connecting with people from a variety of cultural backgrounds might help you improve and better understand certain professional behaviors and actions. Cultural intelligence may aid you in learning about and adjusting to diverse cultures via the use of the following practices:
- Understanding why some activities are done in various ways in different cultures is important. So that you may make better informed judgments, you should do the following: In order to properly communicate with your coworkers, you must observe their activity on social media and memorize diverse cultural traditions. Keeping track of your observations so that you may refer back to them when in doubt. This will assist you in ensuring that you are always enhancing your cultural intelligence.
3. Establish a conflict-solving practice
Any form of team can have conflict at some point. When it comes to understanding the roots of disagreements and developing tactics to resolve conflicts when they happen, cultural intelligence may be quite beneficial. Members of the team should constantly remind themselves of the procedures that are in place to resolve any disputes that may arise as a result of cultural differences.

Intuition is a mental capacity that comprises of the skills to learn from experience, adapt to new situations, comprehend and manage complex concepts, and utilize knowledge to control one’s surroundings.
Intelligence has been defined differently by many investigators, each of whom has stressed distinct components of intelligence.
Thorndike disagreed on the notion of intelligence, with Terman emphasizing the ability to think abstractly and Thorndike emphasizing the ability to learn and provide effective solutions to questions.
As an example, a student in school will learn the material necessary to do well in a course; a physician who is treating a patient with unfamiliar symptoms will learn about the disease; and an artist will rework a painting in order to conveya more coherent impression will all be examples of such adaptation.
Effective adaptation requires the use of a variety of cognitive processes, including perception, learning, memory, reasoning, and problem solving, among others.
To summarize: A new disease requires a physician to adapt by perceiving information about the disease in medical literature, learning what information it contains, recalling the critical aspects of that information that are required to treat a patient, and then applying reason to solve the problem of adapting the information to meet the needs of that patient.
This has not always been evident to those who have studied the subject, and much of the field’s history has been dominated by debates about the nature and talents that comprise intelligence, among other things.
Theories of intelligence
Ideas of intelligence, like most scientific theories, have evolved through a series of models, as has been the case with most scientific theories. Psychology, also known as psychometrics, is a branch of psychology that investigates the processes by which the mind operates. Cognitive psychology, also known as cognitive psychology, is a branch of psychology that explores the processes by which the mind functions. The next section contains a discussion of recent advancements in each of these four categories.
