Different Types Of Intelligence

Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University proposed that there are several types of intelligence: naturalist, logical, mathematical, musical, interpersonal, spatial or linguistic (many theories include eight or even nine types). The type of intelligence differs in everyone and is largely a natural phenomenon. Naturalists can easily find the difference between natural things like clouds, animals, plants, water, ice, salt, etc. Whereas mathematically intelligent people are quick at calculations, propositions and hypotheses. Musically intelligent persons are able to discern rhythm, tone or pitch and can identify sounds which a normal human being might easily miss.

There are different types of intelligence and amazing talent displayed by people like Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso, Elon Musk, and Edgar Allan Poe.  Don’t forget about Mark Twain and Bernard Shaw.  No shame in trying to live vicariously through these folks, TBH

Of course artificial intelligence is an emerging factor as companies like Google and Twitter try to break through and lead the way with incredible innovations like BitcoinSMH at the genius of Bitcoin and Tezos.

What Is Spacial intelligence?

Those with spatial intelligence have a unique quality of thinking in pictures. On the other hand linguistically intelligent ones use words for imaginative activities.

Why is it often claimed ‘EQ’ is a different concept then ‘IQ’ when it has been shown that all types of intelligence correlate with each other via a g-factor? from askpsychology

Stay current as well with other factors like deep learning, computer vision, AI, 4K HDR, Youtube, self driving electric cars, VR headsets, DuckDuckGo, Yandex, Ecosia, and other technology and inventions that displays human intelligence.

Howard Gardner is a prominent cognitive scientist who has a unique theory about the meaning of intelligence in history. He claims that any culture with very high standards of moral and legal behavior would be an intelligent culture. This is possible because a culture that uses intuition, observation, logic, and logic to solve problems will come up with solutions faster and correctly than one that does not use these methods. In fact, even those cultures that don’t like to admit their own flaws are likely to be intelligent, since a society that has good morals and laws will always be prone to provide explanations for the bad ones.

Gardner’s theory that all human intelligence is naturally directed to solving problems is one of the most important ideas in psychology. It has been shown that people who fail to adapt quickly to new environments are often doomed to failure. And we all know that people who do not adapt to changing circumstances are often the most unhappy in their lives. As much as we may try to adapt to things, we will always find ways to avoid them or create new ones.

In his latest book, How We Got to Now: What Happened and How to Get Back, Gardner explains that we are not in control of our thoughts, but rather control over how we react to them. He suggests that it is not so much a question of whether intelligence is natural, but how well a person copes with the natural limitations of their brain. Gardner argues that the more successful a culture is at adapting to change, the more intelligent they will be. One of the greatest aspects of Gardner’s theory is that he provides concrete examples of cultures that are exceptionally successful and yet display highly intelligent traits. This is important because he provides such examples that you can apply the same principles to your own life. While Gardner’s theories are controversial, they are definitely worth studying further.

  1. This is intriguing to me because i love studying and reading things about the brain. It amazes me to see all of the things they are finding out about the brain now regarding how it works and why it does certain things.

  2. I also enjoy studying about the human and brain and human biolgy, yet i find that i posses a few of these different intelligencesl; I am very linguistic and logical but also mathematical and musical =]

  3. Given a proper education, it’s not impossible for one to excel in each of the aforementioned arenas. Polyhistors must come from some where. :oD
    I think the best bang for your education buck comes from imparting lessons with synergistic exercises.

  4. Not to sound arrogant, but this seems so obvious and intuitive to me. Why is it that it takes a professor from Harvard to tell me that people think are more intelligent in different ways?

  5. “It amazes me to think of how wonderful the brain is…” this is quite the paradox of all quotes would you agree? It seems that we all have a longing for understanding what makes us prudent in doing so… but to look further one will eventually arrive at a point where certainty will only be self-justifying and no longer adequate in understanding such gander and phenomenon of life and it premises. To make one think and realize how small we are in this vastness of existence is the greatest of all gifts when it leads to one going and trying to capture that sense of amazement.

    This is because scientists actually say a lot more than just what is written at the top of this page. If you read their papers, you will find that while you may have known the outcome, you had no idea of how it actually happened. That is the essence of science. For exaple, it is obvious that you get sunburn if you stay in the sun for too long, but without scientists figuring out why this happens, we wouldn’t have suncream or know much about skin cancer. So while you may know that we are intelligent in different ways, I’m sure the details are just a little bit more complex than that; and touch on more scientific areas than mere common sense.
