IN all intelligence tests of the kind. applied here, one circumstance is always repeated: if one slngle part of the "solutions" in the proceedings we have discussed (e.g. the beginning) be considered by itself and without any relation to the remaining parts, it represents behaviour which, in the face of the task, i.e. the attaining of the objective, seems to be either quite irrelevant or else to lead in the opposite direction. It is only when we consider the whole course of the experiment, or, as later, at least considerable parts instead of those sections, that this whole seems to have some significance, and each of the sections previously isolated takes on a meaning as a part of this whole.
