Guest Zarafa Posted November 6, 2002 Report Share Posted November 6, 2002 I was in class last night, struggling to do a 5 minute combination of sissone, jete battu and brises when I suddenly realised that my mind had the combination perfectly, but my body really didn't! It wasn't that I didn't "know"the exercise, I could have talked you through it - it's just that I couldn't dance it. I realised that my BQ was lower than my IQ! Has there been any studies on this? Am I being crazy in thinking that you can have physical intelligence as well as mental intelligence? Further - do you think there is a limit on your BQ? or do you think it is a matter of training? Edward De Bono used to claim that you could train monkeys to pass IQ test, but some psychologists believe that people have a genetical set range of IQ probability, which is then affected by nurture. Do you think bodies are the same? That some bodies could train forever but would not be as "intelligent" as others? Is part of the gifted body this innate BQ, as well as physical gifts of good turnout etc? Quote Link to comment
