Moving beyond traditional blanket expectations of Western culture, the authors explore the existence and various forms of "core competencies," discuss how competencies can be identified and studied across cultures, and explain how integral it will be to understand varying definitions of competence as globalization increases and societies become more complex. This volume will be an invaluable resource for graduate students new to the fields of intelligence and of cultural psychology while also appealing to cognitive, developmental, cultural, and educational psychologists as well as anthropologists and educators at all levels.
