“It is of the utmost importance that we recognize and nurture all of the varied human intelligences, and all of the combinations of intelligences. We are all so different largely because we all have different combinations of intelligences. If we recognize this, I think we will have at least a better chance of dealing appropriately with the many problems that we face in the world.” HOWARD GARDNER (1987)
Howard Gardner, an American psychologist best known for his theory of multiple intelligences, divides intelligence into eight comprehensive categories. He believes that each of us possesses a collection of these intelligences. Through extensive research, he determined that in each of us there are linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist intelligences.
