Nowadays, there's a lot of talk about the intellectual capacities, but no one seems to be able to put a finger on them.

Sure, there are tests that measure your IQ and there are even tests to help determine your EQ, but intelligence itself, can't be limited to any of the traits that we usually associate it with.

In order to assert the ways of increasing our intellectual capacity, we should first agree on what intellectual capacity really means.

The very word “intellectual” comes from the Latin intellectus which means understanding.

Nowadays, psychology differentiates many different types of intelligence depending on the subject that a specific type of intelligence ought to grasp.

Howard Gardener, an American developmental psychologist pleaded for 9 types of intelligence as follows:

  1. Naturalist
  2. Musical
  3. Logical-mathematical
  4. Existential
  5. Interpersonal
  6. Bodily-kinesthetic
  7. Linguistic
  8. Intra-personal
  9. Spatial

Now, the problem with understanding is that there are no exact ways to determine whether someone understands something or not.

Not only that we can't assess whether someone understands something or not… we can't assess how much someone understands something which renders IQ tests useless… and we will see why that is so.

We usually measure intelligence (or understanding) in relation to the efficiency of solving problems. Furthermore, our problem-solving capacities are demonstrated by our behavior.

It would all be fine and dandy if our behavior was completely determined by our reason and the ability to understand. However, we are not absolutely rational beings. Au contraire!

Our behavior is determined by irrational factors as well. We're not purely cognitive beings.

Our behavior is driven by willpower. Enter conative aspects of our being: emotions, desires, urges, motivation, states, etc. All of those may impact our cognitive abilities in a positive or a negative way.

Furthermore, cognition itself is a complex issue. Understanding is not just connecting pieces of information into novel entities.

The term ‘Freelancer' expresses joy and freedom. After all, overseeing your own time and securing clients at your own pace is a dream job.

Statistics further support this fact that between 2014 and 2017, there's been a rise of 3 million freelancers in the United States alone.

Over 35% of the U.S. workforce consists of freelancers, who've collectively brought in a revenue stream of a mammoth $1 trillion according to a survey released by ‘Freelancing in America: 2016'.

With the increasing trend of people shifting over to a freelancing lifestyle, it begs the question – just why are freelancers a happy bunch and how do we determine the value of this happiness?

THE ADVANTAGES OF A FREELANCING LIFESTYLE

Why Freelancers are happier than traditional workers?

The ultimate battle that rages on – Employees versus Freelancers.

Which one wins as a career option?

Exactly why has there been such a boom in the freelancing space?

According to a 2015 survey, freelancers have the most important resource available to them over traditional employees – Flexibility.

The ability to manage time is the core reason many people shift to the freelancing market. Single mothers, university students, part-timers, businessmen, and just about anyone with a marketable talent tap into the freelancer's world.

Another factor that adds to the happiness of freelancers is variable contracts.

While an employee in a company gains experience from a single source – the company itself, a freelancer has a range of clients to work with simultaneously as his or her time allows.

Being tied down to a permanent cubicle versus having their own personal workspace makes freelancing a sought-after market.

Personal Group carried out a poll which demonstrated that only a meager 48% of employees were happy when working for someone while an ...read more
