Traditionally, someone who is intelligent is defined as an individual who can solve problems, use logic to answer questions, and think critically. However, psychologist Howard Gardner has created a much broader definition of intelligence called multiple intelligences, which is more focused on our areas of learning preferences. For this discussion, please complete the following:
- Demonstrate an understanding of intelligence (IQ) and multiple intelligences (MIs) by comparing and contrasting the differing variables associated with each.
- Thinking critically about these foundational differences, comment on how Gardner’s ideas about learning preferences might change the way we assess a person’s strengths and weaknesses.
- Click the following link and take the MI assessment (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Review your results.
- Do you agree with the assessment? How can what you have learned about yourself help support your learning ? List at least two behaviors you could change or traits you could develop in your own behaviors, and explain how they support your assessment results.
