Your Ability of Eight Intelligences

From the moment we open our eyes in the morning until we close our eyes when we go to bed after a gruelling day, we go through hundreds of subconscious motions without even once noticing it. We hear the alarm first thing in the morning, even though we are in a deep sleep. We then automatically get out of bed and prepare for the day. We go to work, do the best we can through the whole day and sigh in relief tonight when we close our eyes to go to bed… all without us even thinking once what to do next.

Ever wondered how and where all this instinctive stuff you do happens?

Definition of the theory: The theory of multiple intelligences was proposed by Howard Gardner in 1983 as a model of intelligence that differentiates intelligence into various specific (primarily sensory) modalities, rather than seeing it as dominated by a single general ability. Defined by Wikipedia.

Note. Some people are more gifted than others in certain intelligence areas.

Using the Gardner model we can divide the mind into eight intelligences:

1. Logical Mathematical Intelligence… this intelligence gives you a sense of reason and calculation through a logical systematic manner. It is no longer assumed that this intelligence has anything to do with excelling in maths, for example. It is presently more defined as a reasoning ability.

2. Spatial Intelligence… the ability to think in pictures, to imagine things in the mind’s eye. [Good with puzzles].

3. Linguistic Intelligence… it’s the ability to communicate in words by means of read and write.

4. Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence… this ability controls your motions and skills, as well as senses the goal of any physical action, has a clear sense of timing and trains your reflexes to perfection.

5. Musical Intelligence… the ability to work with sounds, make music, sing, understand music and hear sound of music.

6. Interpersonal Intelligence… your sense of social order resides here. This is your ability how you interact with people and how you view them and their goals. This is a nice breeding ground for extroverts, because of their high interpersonal intelligence. This makes them sensitive to other people’s moods and feelings, but also gives them the ability to work in groups to get the job done.

7. Intrapersonal Intelligence… the ability for reflection and introspection or self-analysis. To be able to quietly diagnose and assess one’s behaviour and deepest feelings, to be able to make plans and set goals, and to know oneself.

8. Naturalistic Intelligence… the ability to sense fauna and flora and make distinctions between animals and plants in nature.
