The theory of multiple intelligences

One of subjects you might be interested is "intelligence". People usually talk about IQ and categorize people into intelligent and non-intelligent!. I recently came across the theory of multiple intelligences developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University. ( because of my ignorance, I did not know that this theory has existed for 21 years!!)

It suggests that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on I.Q. testing, is far too limited. Instead, He proposes eight different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential in children and adults. He pointed out that I.Q. tests measure primarily verbal, logical-mathematical, and some spatial intelligence. Believing that there are many other kinds of intelligence that are important aspects of human capabilities, he proposed that they also include visual/spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, and intrapersonal intelligences. More recently he added naturalist intelligence to this list and suggested that there may be other possibilities including spiritual and existential.

Read about this theory and more.
