Robert Sternberg

Robert J. Sternberg is an American psychologist and psychometrician and the Dean of Arts and Sciences at Tufts University. Sternberg has proposed a triarchic theory of intelligence and a triangular theory of love. Sternberg has criticized IQ tests, saying they are 'convenient partial operationalizations of the construct of intelligence, and nothing more. They do not provide the kind of measurement of intelligence that tape measures provide of height.'
