Multi factor theory of intelligence (Thorndike)

Proposed by EL Thorndike. According to Thorndike, intelligence is not a single factor like general intelligence rather it is a combination of multiple factors.

These factors include:

(a) Abstract intelligence, (b) Concrete (technical) intelligence, (c) Social intelligence, etc. Thorndike states, each factor is an independent element and hence it is not possible to combine all these elements.
