The Intelligence Trap

In the book de Bono's Thinking Course, Edward de Bono asserts that thinking is a skill. His finding has been that intelligence and thinking skill are not directly related; the existence of this effect is counterintuitive for most people. Dr. de Bono calls this effect the intelligence trap.

In describing the intelligence trap, Dr. de Bono identifies the following components:

Not all intelligent people get caught in the intelligence trap, and of those who do, they do not get stuck there all the time. Some are able to avoid the trap instinctively, while others have been taught or have learned to overcome it. However, it is always there calling, and it is something to be aware of.
