Have you developed an intelligence test and the result less frustrating you because you are not super-intelligent as you thought?
If you trust Howard Gardner, that does not mean anything. Harvard Professor of Psychology in 1983 made a revolution with his book The Frame of Thinking, where he first mentioned the theory of multiple intelligence. According to this theory, people do not possess the same mind, nor the same strength and weaknesses, but rather process information in a different way. Someone for this purpose uses words, some numbers, a body – what’s common is that all these ways are relatively independent from one another.
Gardner’s theory has pointed its finger in the eye of a standard theory that emphasizes the connection between different properties, as well as intelligence tests that suddenly measure logical, spatial and linguistic abilities.
And there are many more, Gardner claims, who identified seven dimensions of intelligence: linguistic, logical, mathematical, music, spatial, body-kinetic, interpersonal.
Linguistic or linguistic – Journalists, lawyers, professors, word-writers and debates possess linguistic intelligence. They want to play with words, have good memory, good writing, but also speak and tend to detailed explanations.
Logical and mathematical – Someone enjoys nature, someone in movies, but the “owners” of this intelligence, their favorite entertainment is their rewards, riddles and anagrams. They are perfectly in such areas as in everything else that contains numbers, abstract ideas, patterns, and patterns. Among them are mathematicians, engineers, developers, economists, accountants, etc.
Spacious – If you’ve ever lost yourself in an unknown city and you can not find it with a map, probably this type of dimension is not your “strong” side. So from now on, travel with people who are good at visualizing the space, because they can read the maps correctly. Spatial intelligence is mostly developed by architects, but also by people who enjoy puzzles, drawing and painting. A hand in hand with spatial intelligence goes well with the luscious fantasy.
Music – Friends are running away when you start singing, and have not qualified in the school choir? Then, unfortunately, you lack music intelligence that is not only owned by musicians and composers, but also by those who easily recognize tones, rhythms and other music patterns.
Body-kinetic – People with “left hands and feet” can not be proud of bodily-kinetic intelligence. But that’s why dancers, athletes, actors, dummies and all those who move harmoniously, feel well in their body and use it to express themselves. This group includes surgeons and craftsmen who are skilled at hands and have good physical coordination.
Interpersonal or social – Psychologists, diplomats, politicians, and philosophers generally have developed interpersonal intelligence, which involves “reading” other people, their intentions, desires and motives. They are excellent in establishing good relationships with other people, but also in resolving conflicts. They have developed empathy, verbal and non-verbal abilities and breadth to observe the situation from multiple angles.
Intrapersonal or analytic – It is present in introvert people who are prone to introspection and analysis of themselves, others and the environment. These people, most often philosophers and writers, are in collusion with themselves and often need solitude to sort their thoughts.
