Fitting In with Multiple Intelligence In “A Rounded Version: The Theory of Multiple Intelligence” by Howard Gardner he describes the seven multiple intelligences and how an individual would relate to them. The MI are musical intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, linguistic intelligence, spatial intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and intrapersonal intelligence. Every human being has a skill that would coincide with at least one or more of the MI. When thinking of the MI theory, one may consider it being more than just a measurement of intelligence, but possibly a way to look deeper into an individual’s personality. Among Gardner’s Intelligences I feel the ones most strongly related to me are bodily-kinesthetic, spatial, and interpersonal. Bodily–Kinesthetic intelligence is the control of one’s bodily movement. When I was a child my father coached me in softball. Every day I would practice on batting, pitching, or fielding. I became a very good softball player who eventually made it to nationals in an Amateur Softball Association league. For me, having bodily-kinesthetic intelligence growing up has taught me great discipline, because in order to do well in sports a person has to work hard, and never give up. Spatial intelligence is an individual’s perception of things in a space. Since I am a clean freak I feel I can relate to this. For example, when a person finishes eating I think the first thing that needs to be done is to go straight to the sink to rinse off the dish, and put it in the dishwasher. Also, I know that being a guest in someone’s home who doesn’t keep things clean can be very uncomfortable. When I have someone over to visit the last thing that I want is for my guest to be uncomfortable. For me, spatial intelligence is a good thing. I like to be organized and aware of my surroundings.
