Thurston, of Carnegie Institute,
Gives New Definition of
Intelligence
MEASURED BY ABILITY TO
HALT AND CHECKUP ACTION
After showing that the commonly
accepted definitions of intelligence are
wrong and evasive, Prof. L. L. Thur-
stone, of the4 Carnegie Institute of
Technology, presented his own defini-
tion of the term in a -lecture at 5
o'clock Thursday afternoon in Natur-
al Science auditorium.
Professor Thurstone said that at
the present time educators are paying
more attention than ever to the giving
of intelligence tests to students. "But
what is that which we are attempting
to measure? Such definitions of in-
telligence as, the adoptability to com-
petition under present conditions, the
ability' to manage one's own affairs,
the power to adjust' one's self to
changing conditions, 'and the ability
to profit by past experience, are not
good;definitions. They dodge the real
question."
.Definition Changes /
After explaining the processes in-
volved in the conscious act of think-
ing and feeling, Professor Thurstone
gave his definition of intelligence,
from a psychological viewpoint, as
follows: "The capacity to inhibt ac-
tion in order to define it by mental
trial and error." This definition, he
declared, is not final. It is being con-
stantly revised as other persons study
the questiolf.
In explaining how this definition
works out, Professor Thurstone gave
a few examples of thought processes.
In an experiment a cat waa locked in
a box the lid of which was held down
by a hook fastened from the inside.
The cat pawed around but did not
know enough to push the hook up and
escape. No intelligence was exhibited
here. Had the cat escaped. it would
have been mere chance.
Application to Man
An illustration of this definition as
applied to a man was then given. If
a ring puzzle is handed to a man and,
after fumbling the rings about for a
while with no 'definite plan in mind,
he makes them fall apart, no degree of
intelligence has been manifested. But
if the man placed the rings on the ta-
ble and sat back in his chair and
thought over processes which might
loosen the rings, and after thinking
for some time picks up the igs and
without hesitation makes them come
apart, a high degree of intelligence
has been evinced.
Need Not Be Specialized
Professor Thurstone differentiated
between general and special intelli-
gence. He said, "A person may be
inferior in special intelligence, such
as, ability to memorize poetry, to solve
mathematical problems, or to draw,
and still be highly intelligent."
In conclusion Professor Thurstone

made the point that it has been found
advisable to permit students to study
the subjects they exhibit interest in,
even if it be in typewriting, and then
gradually lead them from the practi-
cal to the abstract and theoretical.

catch pneumonia-we jam now be-
cause we are in a hurry for fresh air,
and because the aisles are so wide
and spacious.
And all this for the price of see-
ing a much better show in a much
better theater in Detroit.
The point is this, the theater man-
agers in Ann Arbor, like the soda-
water merchants, are not aware that
the war is over and that prices are
dropping all over the country. Grant-r
ed that they show the best pictures.
But when? We are paying 35 cents
for the privileeg of seeing shows that
people in other towns see for from
17 to 22 cents. Why do we pay it?
j3ecause we cannothhelp ourselves if
we care to go to the theater at all.
And now we will hear that "it can
not be done more cheaply".
The answer is that it can and is
done more cheaply in other towns,
and'Ann Arbor managers must be eith-
er making an excess profit or, because
of lack of competition, have never
learned' to meet conditions as mana-
gers in other cities have been forced
to do.
The question ,s, how far do things
connected with motion picture thea-
ters have to drop before the patrons
of Ann Arbor theaters are benefited
through reduced admission charges?
