Then you can take that thought and physically stand up and walk to the refrigerator (where, most likely, you will be disappointed and not find a mango) (Sternberg, 1977). Components perform three basic kinds of functions: Metacomponents are higherorder processes used in planning, monitoring, and evaluating performance of a task.

In contrast, less intelligent people emphasize local rather than global planning. In other words, the more intelligent people spent more time before beginning a task, deciding what to do. They were then less likely to pursue dead ends or get lost in their problem solving. The less intelligent people started tasks without fully thinking them through, and thus had to keep planning and replanning as they made their way through the tasks. They kept turning down blind alleys. If you play either computer- or card-based games of skill or strategy, you have probably already learned this concept.

The computer’s artificial intelligence tries to create an opponent that is talented enough to challenge you.

Indeed, many computer games may look good and have interesting concepts – but if they are too easy or too hard, they will not be a success. Whereas many psychometric theorists of intelligence have agreed that the factor is the fundamental unit of intellectual behavior, many cognitive theorists have agreed that the information-processing component, as it is sometimes called, is the fundamental unit.
