Description

Psychologist Howard Gardner has developed a theory of multiple intelligences that suggests that there are many different kinds of intelligence and that humans don’t have just one overall intelligence, but at least eight distinct ones. We all possess all of the eight, but one or more may be stronger than the others. This can make a difference in the way we learn, the things that interest us, and even what career choices we make.
