We learn, we communicate, we solve problems in at least seven ways. How smart are you? This is certainly a subjective question, and depending on the context, it doesn't tell us very much about the individual. A better question might be: How are you SMART?
The theory of Multiple Intelligences was developed by Dr. Howard Gardner, a psychologist, and professor of neuroscience from Harvard University. It is widely accepted by Educational Psychologists throughout the world, and is based on the belief that we all possess at least eight unique intelligences through which we are able to learn/teach new information. Although we each have all nine, no two individuals have them in the same exact amounts - similar to our fingerprints.
Linguistic intelligence or ( word smart ): is the capacity to use language, your native language, and perhaps other languages, to express what's on your mind and to understand other people. Linguistic Intelligence involves not only ease in producing language, but also sensitivity to the nuances, order and rhythm of words. Poets really specialize in linguistic intelligence, but any kind of writer, orator, speaker, lawyer, or a person for whom language is an important stock in trade, highlights linguistic intelligence. E.g. SHAKESPEARE, AGATHA CHRISTIE, MARGERY WILLIAMS and J.K. ROWLING … They all considered word smart. Students who enjoy playing with rhymes, who pun, who always have a funny story to tell, who quickly acquire other languages -including sign language - and who write copious notes to their friends in class all exhibit linguistic intelligence.
Logical-Mathematical intelligence or (math smart) : is the ability to explore patterns, categories and relationships by manipulating objects or symbols, or and to experiment in a controlled, orderly way. People with highly developed logical/mathematical intelligences (math smart) understand the underlying principles of some kind of a causal system, the way a scientist or a logician does; or can manipulate numbers, quantities, and operations, the way a mathematician does. So Scientists, mathematicians and philosophers all rely on this intelligence like Sir Isaac Newton, Einstein, Galileo, Pythagoras. So do the students who love sport statistics or who carefully analyze the components of problems - either personal or school- related - before systematically testing solutions.
Musical Rhythmic intelligence or (music smart) : is the ability to enjoy, perform or recognize or compose a musical piece. Musical/Rhythmic Intelligence includes sensitivity to pitch, timbre rhythm of sounds, as well as responsiveness to the emotional implications of these elements. Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Stevie Wonder, John Lennon …They're all music intelligent While composers and instrumentalists clearly exhibit this intelligence, so do the students who seem particularly caught by the birds singing outside the classroom window, or who constantly tap out intricate - or irritating - rhythms on the desk with their pencils.
Bodily/Kinesthetic intelligence or (body smart) : is the capacity to use your whole body or parts of your body: (your hands, your fingers, your arms), to solve a problem, make something, or put on some kind of production. Athletes, surgeons, dancers, choreographers and craft people all use bodily-kin aesthetic intelligence e.g. Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, David Copperfield, Abdullah Rabia.. The capacity is also evident in students who relish gym class and school dances, who prefer to carry out class projects by making models rather than writing reports and who pitch their crumpled papers with annoying accuracy and frequency into waste baskets across the room.
Spatial intelligence or (art smart) : refers to the ability to represent the spatial world internally in your mind – the way a sailor or airplane pilot navigates the large spatial world, or the way a chess player or sculptor represents a more circumscribed spatial world. Spatial intelligence can be used in the arts or in the sciences. If you are spatially intelligent and oriented toward the arts, you are more likely to become a painter or sculptor or architect than, say a musician or a writer. Similarly, certain sciences like anatomy or topology emphasize spatial intelligence. People like :Leonardo Da Vinci, Picasso, Van Gogh, Steven Spielberg…are art smart.
Naturalist intelligence or (nature smart) : designates the human ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) as well as sensitivity to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations). This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef. I also speculate that much of our consumer society exploits the natural intelligences, which can be mobilized in the discrimination among cars, sneakers, kinds of makeup, and the like. The kind of pattern recognition valued in certain sciences may also draw upon the naturalist intelligence. e.g. Galileo, Rachael Carson, Lewis & Clark…….
Intrapersonal intelligence, (self smart) : refers to having an understanding of yourself, of knowing who you are, what you can do, what you want to do, how you react to things, which things to avoid, and which things to gravitate toward. We are drawn to people who have a good understanding of themselves because those people tend not to screw up. They tend to know what they can do. They tend to know what they can’t do. And they tend to know where to go if they need help. NEIL ARMSTRONG, HELEN KELLER, SIR EDMOND Hillary…are all Intrapersonal intelligents.
Interpersonal intelligence, (people smart): is understanding other people and the ability to understand other people, to notice their goals, motivations, intentions, and to work effectively with them. It’s an ability we all need, but is at a premium if you are a teacher, clinician, salesperson, or a politician. Anybody who deals with other people has to be skilled in the interpersonal sphere. Famous people who have this skill Ghandi, Oprah Winfrey, Martin Luther King…
Finally Intelligence is the ability to see a problem, then solve a problem or make something that is useful to a group of people.
