The SOI method is not tutoring. It is remediation. The first step involves being tested to determine your individual strengths and weaknesses on twenty six ability measures. Each measure or factor of ability is an important ability for learning. Weakness in any one of these factors means that some learning weakness will result. It is common to have at least one or two areas of weaknesses even when you make good grades in school. Children with learning disorders usually have several weaknesses but also several strengths. The results of the test will indicate what areas need to be improved and what areas need to be appreciated.

Joy Paul Guilford, a United States psychologist, designed in 1955 a model of intelligence, based on factor analysis. In the Guilfords Structure of Intellect (SI), all mental abilities are conceptualized within a three-dimensional framework. There are three features of intellectual tasks: the content, or the type of information; the product, or the form in which the information is represented; and the operation, or type of mental activity performed. These 5 x 6 x 6 = 180 mental abilities are listed below : Content features in the Guilfords Structure of Intellect Five content dimensions (broad areas of information to which the human intellect applies operations) :
Product features in the Guilfords Structure of Intellect Six products, in increasing complexity :
Operation features in the Guilfords Structure of Intellect Six operations (general intellectual processes) :
Guilford’s original model was composed of 120 components, because he combined Visualand Auditory content in a common Figural Content and he combined Memory Recordingand Memory Retention in a common Memory Operation. Guilford’s model is an open system such that it allows for newly discovered categories to be added in any of the three directions. Guilfords Structure of Intellect has few supporters today, but Joy Paul Guilford is considered as one of the founders of the Psychology of Creativity. He emphasized the distinction between convergent and divergent thinking. In 1976 he introduced the developed model of Divergent Thinking as the main ingredient of creativity. Guilford appointed the following characteristics for creativity :
Peter Nilsson uses the following example to measure the creativity of people based on Guilford’s concept of divergent production :
