The present article reviews some relevant contributions of research in human intelligence. Specially, we analyzed the contributions of four modern theories that have received considerable attention in the literature: the Multiple Intelligences theory (Ml), the Three Stratum theory (CHC), the Succesful Intelligence theory (SIT), and the Verbal-Perceptual-Image Rotation theory (VPR). We discuss studies that empirically examined assumptions of these theories. In general, empirical findings provide support for a hierarchical structure of intelligence with a general underlying factor and first and second-order aptitudes. Regarding both powerful statistical methods used to specify the model and neurobiological and genetic substrates, the VPR model appears to be the most promising framework although additional evidence is required.
