Howard Gardner’s theory suggests that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on I.Q. testing is limited. Instead of summarizing a person’s intelligence in one numerical score, Dr Gardner proposes identifying what kind of intelligence each person possesses.
It is not about whether you are intelligent or not, it is about how are you intelligent.
Intelligence types are not fixed at birth. Everyone is blessed with a mixture of several abilities from different intelligence types. To a large degree, it is this “mixture” that determines an individual’s uniqueness. Importantly, Dr Gardner’s theory is that we can develop and improve our “intelligence” in different areas through training and practice.
After completing the survey, you will find the top three areas of your intelligence.
