Starting with his Triarchic Theory of Human Intelligence (Sternberg, 1985)

Successful Intelligence
is defined as that set of mental abilities used to achieve one’s goals in life, given a socio-cultural context, through adaptation to, selection of, and shaping of environments.
Successful intelligence
involves three aspects that are interrelated but largely distinct: analytical, creative, and practical thinking (Sternberg, 1998)
Analytical Thinking
Commonly known as critical thinkingInvolves analyzing and evaluating information, often in order to work through a problem or decision.Analytical thinking is largely responsible for school success and measured through traditional testing methods
Creative Thinking
Involves generating new and different ideas and approaches to problems, and often, viewing the world in ways that disregard conventions
Practical Thinking
Putting what you’ve learned into action in order to solve a problem or make a decision.

It enables you to accomplish goals despite real-world obstacles

Practical Intelligence
is the ability to size up a situation well, to be able to determine how to achieve goals, to display awareness to the world around you, and to display interest in the world at large (Sternberg, 1990; Sternberg et al., 2000; Wagner, 2000)
