Inelligencies are not single but multiple. Everyone in this world is unique , and so are a gem and second-to-none. It’s because of his Nature-The genetic make-up and Nurture-the way he was brought up and trained . Similarly intelliencies are multiple. When we talk of intelligence,we usually define it in terms of IQ-intelligent quotient. The person who has highest number in IQ test is called most intelligent. But the intelligensies are not only single type. In fact they are multiple. Some peoples are good at writing, some at speaking, some in sports, sum are apt in singing or playing instrumensta Howard Gardner first outlined his theory in his 1983 book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences,he suggested that all people have different kinds of “intelligences.”. According to Howard Gardner an Harvard psychologist There are not single but at least eight tyes of intelligencies .
1-Linguistic-Finding the correct word to express -This type of intelligency is usually found in poets ,writers or Bloggers. 2-Logical Mathmetical- People who are strong in logical-mathematical intelligence are good at reasoning, recognizing patterns, and logically analyzing problems. These individuals tend to think well in numbers, and patterns .Mathmatician ,scientists ,computer programmer belong to this category of of inelligency. 3- Phisio-kinesthetic type-Whose mind and body co-ordination are perfect.Players of different categories , gymnasts Jugglers ,circus artists belong to this categories. 4-Interpersonally Intelligent -They have very good at understanding and interacting with other people. They caneasily assess the motivations, desires emotions and intentions of peoples around them. If one is strong in interpersonal intelligence, good career choices for him a are: Psychologist Philosopher Counselor Salespersson Politicians 5-Musical intelligency- People who have strong musical intelligence are good at thinking in patterns, rhythms, and sounds. They can decipher the type of music and are often good at musical composition and performance. Off course singing and palying indtruments are natural choice. 6- Intrapersonal Intelligence– Their understnding lies in self and others emotional intelligence,They creat healthy relationship and are good mediator and problem-solvers . 7-Spacial intelligence- There people are apt in visual and spacial judgement.They are good navigator ,driver ,puzzle solvers. 8-Naturalistic Intelligence-People endowed with this intelligence are nature lover , They enjoy camping , gardening hiking ,Biologist, zoologist and nature photographer and nature explorer belong to this group. Besides there are some more intelligencies like Existential ,Enterpreneural like that .
MOOT POINT/ POINT OF DISCUSSION – Many people don’t agree with the Gardners theory of multiple intelligencies.They believe that IQ tests are intended to provide a measure broad general ability, as well as some of the specific ones. Howard Gardner disagree with this idea of general intelligence .He was of opinion that IQ tests actually measure only narrow academic skills and also denied that there is a single general ability .He argued that there are separate areas of ability that deserve to be called “intelligences”. I BELIEVE – In Gardners theory of Multiple intelligencies and want to add that every-one is gifted by his/her Nature (Genetic configuration) with one two three or many intelligencies and has a basic edge over others .If he deveops it, he can pick up faster and become apt in these, than others .But at the same time Nurture or Training has big role .Our brain is highly maleable and neuroplastic .It can pick up any talent or intelligencies by sheer learning and training.
To conclude- intelligencies are are not single but are multiple .They depend upon person’s genetic make-up , which we can level as gifted or God-gifted tatents and the way he was brought and received training.Understanding one’s inborn intelligency ,one can choose his/her domain of working dimention. sctri48 Satish Tripathi email@example.com
