Growing up in a traditional education system, like many of her peers Kate believed that one's intelligence quotient (IQ) was the sole indicator of success. However, by observing her older brother’s challenges and growth, she has come to realize the importance of social and emotional skill development. In this talk, Kate encourages us to reflect on the concept of intelligence more broadly.
Kate Karafotas has American and German heritage, and has lived in many different countries, including the UK, Italy and the Czech Republic. Kate’s TEDx talk was inspired by her brother and her study of psychology.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
