I will be starting a series this week covering the different types of multiple intelligence. This theory is the cornerstone of my business/thesis, and I thought it would be nice to explore the components of it a bit more to give better insight into what I do.
The Multiple Intelligence theory itself was developed by Howard Gardner in 1983. In his book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, he mapped out eight different types of intelligence that went beyond the traditional viewpoint of IQ. There are a few others that have been suggested, explored, and/or dismissed, but these are the core eight:
I will more than likely touch on the proposed/suggested intelligence types at the end, since they are quite interesting themselves.
The first intelligence that will be covered later this week is Visual-Spatial, which I have seen often with regards to my autistic clients.
