What is intelligence? In a survey of Robert J. Sternber, a group of people was asked to define what (1)_ _ _ _ _ _ _ meant be intelligence. There answer consists of three major components of intelligence which were problem-solving ability, the second was verbal abilities and the last one was social competence. Problem-solving ability tries to find out alternate solutions to (2)_ _ _ _ _ _ _ problem. Verbal ability though to exemplify intelligence. Social competence is the ability to show interest in (3)_ _ _ _ _ _ _. So intelligence can be explained in many ways as it is an abstract concept.

# HR Round:

HR: I see that your graph is gradually decreasing in terms of percentage from high school to college, which indicates me that your productivity will even fall once you join our organization.. Can you explain this?

(I had 80% in 10th , 76% in 12th and 68% in Engineering :P)

ME: See , My school was near to my home and my social circle and other activities apart from studies were very restricted.
In college, I have lived in hostel and life drastically changed, I learnt so many new things. I discovered that I love travelling, poetry and I am an active member of dramatics society etc etc.

She was like okayyyyyy:D
