In 1983, a psychologist by the name of Howard Gardiner wrote a book called Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Gardiner believes that each person has many different types of intelligence, and that some are stronger than others. HOW ARE YOU SMART?!
Verbal Linguistic Books are very important to me. I enjoy word games like Scrabble. I am good at remembering, talking and interacting. Tongue twisters, rhymes and jokes are things I enjoy. I can often hear the words in my head before I speak or write them down. When I am out, I usually notice what signs on the road or at the mall say.
Logical Mathematical I enjoy math and/or computers. If something breaks and won't work, I look at the pieces and try to figure out how it works. I enjoy solving brainteasers and other types of problems. In my head, I easily see how numbers fit together or come apart (12 = 10 + 2, 6 + 6, etc.) I love playing chess, checkers or Monopoly. My mind searches for patterns and logical sequences in things.
Visual-Spatial I enjoy jigsaw puzzles, mazes, and other visual puzzles. I like to draw or doodle. I like movies and photographs. I am sensitive to colour. I prefer to look at reading material with lots of pictures, maps and charts. I rarely or never get lost.
Bodily Kinaesthetic I play at least one sport or physical activity on a regular basis. I like working with my hands to complete a project. I often talk with my hands when explaining things to people. I need to touch things in order to learn about them. I find it difficult to sit for long periods of time. My best ideas come to me when I am moving around.
Musical-Rhythmic I frequently listen to music. I often make tapping sounds, hum or whistle while I am working. Songs from the radio or TV often run through my head. If I hear a song once or twice, I can sing it back without many mistakes. I can tell when a musical note is “off key”. I play a musical instrument.
Interpersonal I prefer group sports like baseball or basketball. I have at least 3 close friends. I feel comfortable in a crowd of people. I would rather spend time with friends than stay home alone. People often come to me for advice. When I have a problem, I seek out others for help.
IntRA-personal I regularly spend time alone thinking. I have a special hobby or interest that I keep pretty much to myself. I keep a personal diary or journal, even when I’m not at school. I understand my own strengths and weaknesses. I like learning more about myself. I like to set goals for my future.
Naturalist I like being around animals. Exploring an overgrown field interests me. I can easily recognize various types of plants and animals. Learning about how people treat the earth is important to me. I can hear animal and bird sounds clearly. I have (or would like to have) a garden.
