Gardner’s theory suggest that intelligence is the ability to learn and understand in different ways. His research asserts we have different needs for learning different things whether it is biological or cultural. He describes seven different intelligences that derive from different parts of the brain that effect learning. They are logical-mathematical intelligence, linguistic intelligence, spatial intelligence, musical intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, interpersonal, and intrapersonal intelligence. Each of the intelligences are important and usually are used in combination of one another to enhance your ability to build skills and solve problems.
The first of the seven intelligences is logical-mathematical. This intelligence consist of the ability to count, do mathematical calculations, and the ability to think logically. Scientist, engineers, and insurance actuaries are examples of people who possess the logical-mathematical intelligence. The second intelligence is linguistic intelligence is the ability to use writing and speaking as a way to express yourself or communicate effectively. Poets and reporters and people who are good at public speaking are an example of people who use the linguistic intelligence. Third of the intelligences is spatial intelligence. This is the ability to use your memory to solve problems or for guidance. Gardner’s example for this intelligence is blind children. The fourth intelligence is musical intelligence. This is the ability to learn music, rhythm, tones, and beats. A great example of a person using this intelligence would the composer of your favorite song. Bodily-kinesthetic intelligence is fifth. This is the ability to coordinate your own body movements. Dancers are an example of people who use this intelligence.
The sixth intelligence referenced by Gardner is interpersonal intelligence. This is the ability to understand and interpret the behavior of others. Teachers are a...
