Alliance of Human Ecological Variables with Nature Smartness of Young Adolescents
By appreciating what naturalistic intelligence really is and how we can govern it in our lives, we can commence to leverage all if that intelligence, education and experience stored over a period of time. Similar innovative idea was also given by Howard Gardner (1983) in the theory of multiple intelligences, where human intelligence was differentiated into specific 'modalities', rather thanjust perceiving intelligence as dominated by a single general ability. Human Ecological Systems Theory bestowed by Bronfenbrenner (1979) discribes that there are five various ecological systems arranged from the closest to the individual to the farthest and these systems directly or indirectly affects the human development. By considering above facts, the present study was designed to study the alliance of naturalistic intelligence with various human ecological factors affecting it. To accomplish this aim, in the present study, standardized Multiple Intelligence Assessment Tool developed by Kaur (2006) was directed on a study sample consisting of 200 students from higher secondary schools of both areas of Mahendergarh (Haryana), i.e., rural and urban. Results revealed that none of the human ecological variables were having significant association with the naturalistic intelligence of young adolescent girls.
