For those who find different
'levels' for different senses, you will probably be wanting to know our defence.
For if this discrepancy occurs doesn't this indicate that the model presented
in Chapter 3 is faulty? We can see several possible reasons for this emerging.
- the first possible reason
for the discrepancy is that our model is indeed wrong. We would not be overly
worried about this, as we are not especially interested in protecting a position
or ideology. If indeed this were the case and it were to lead to a more powerful
way of handling the kind of problems we outlined in Chapter 3, we would be
very pleased to apply the new model.
- another possible reason
for this discrepancy is one we also highlighted earlier (see Chapter 3). For
rather than a continuity of intelligences there may well be a discontinuity.
The example we gave in Chapter 3 was that of a stroke victim. With intact
hearing, touch and other abilities, many people who have a stroke may simultaneously
have visual, speech or other difficulties.
