The theory of multiple intelligences suggests that there are a number of distinct forms of intelligence that each individual possesses in varying degrees. Gardner proposes seven primary forms : linguistic, musical, logical-mathematical, spatial, body-kinesthetic, inter-personal (e.g. insight, metacognition) and interpersonal (e.g. social skills). Gardner also emphasises the cultural context of multiple intelligences. Each culture tends to emphasise particular intelligences.Exploring "The theory of multiple intelligences" : accelerated learning network This site further unpacks the e mentioned above and offers an interesting test for you to ascertain your preferred intelligences.
