CC Psychology Howard Gardners Intelligences Theory Discussion


The readings for this week discussed Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences. You might recall his original seven:

  • Linguistic Intelligence
  • Logical / Mathematical Intelligence
  • Spatial Intelligence
  • Musical Intelligence
  • Bodily Kinesthetic Intelligence
  • Interpersonal Intelligence
  • Intrapersonal Intelligence

And then there were two others proposed later:

  • Naturalist Intelligence
  • Existentialist Intelligence

For this assignment I’d like you to perform a self-assessment. Consider each of these areas of intelligence. How would you assess your specific abilities along each of these domains of intelligence? Elaborate on those forms of intelligence for which you believe that you truly excel. And also discuss which one gives you the greatest difficulty. Back up your responses with examples that demonstrate your abilities and your difficulties. You should discuss at least five separate domains of intelligence in your response.
