The Eight Types of Intelligence
Why know your types of intelligence?
Most individuals believe they are intelligent. And I agree with this, everyone has an area where they are intelligent in. However, which area are they intelligent in? By telling the different intelligence levels, you can learn someone's strengths and weaknesses, especially your own. You can also become a better study student by knowing how you can recall information based off of your intelligence abilities.
This is the talent with words. They can write and talk well, so well it seems rehearsed. They can write a beautiful piece of work like a painter can create a work of art. They also have the art of speech, the ability to keep talking about almost anything. Some who are linguistic can talk for hours and still have more to say.
This is the ability to think logically and in numerical tasks, they are the main components. These are the accountants and those in statistics, engineering, and science. They have highly developed intelligence and are good students. These are needed in business school.
This is the capacity to understand, appreciate, and create music characteristics. Everyone has musical intelligence, however, great musicians and composers have an enhansed version of this intelligence. This is how you keep rhythm and how that irritating tune dances in your head from day to day.
This is artistic ability known for painters and sculpters. Also with this type of intelligence are architects, interior designers, pilots, brush trackers, and city planners. They can picture creations and possibilities in their head almost as clear as they can see it in front of them. They can map out a garden, mall, city, etc. This is also important for memory as most individuals remember better by picturing what they wish to remember in their head.
Physical intelligence is basically about the body. It includes body movement, anatomy knowledge, but also has skills with manual dexterity. These are carpenters, doctors, surgeons, or even weavers. They are good with their hands as well. They can piece together buildings, carry heavy weights, and are in tune with their body.
This is a social talent to make other comfortable and at ease around you. They can get along well with almost everyone and this skill is highly rewarded in this society. Individuals with these abilities normally work in sales, negotiation, deplomacy, and motivational speaking. Some good teachers and wonderful managers have this intelligence as well. Some of the symptoms are leadership, organization, communicating, interviewing, selling, and conflict resolution.
This involves self-analysis and to examine your innerself. They know behavior and understanding emotions. They can set goals, plan for the future, daydream, and access intuitive nature. Most of them turn into social workers or psychologists.
This is when someone is particularly strong with nature. They are good at cultivating plants, interacting with animals, or even sensing changes in the weather. They can store and retrieve information if they link what their learning to outdoor activities. It is claimed everyone has this sense, however, some have it stronger than others.
