Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple-intelligence MI

Education is all

Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple-intelligences MI. An American psychologist Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences (MI) proposes that people are not born with all of the intelligence they will ever have. For example, All poets’ have one common skill/strength which is Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence which is the first in the list of nine intelligence found. In addition, if a poet is skilled in singing or playing an instrument s/he got Musical Intelligence which is 3rd in order among the 9 Intelligence according to the psychologist Haward. The poet may have other Intelligence according to Gardner: Visual-Spatial Intelligence, Mathematical-Logical Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, Interpersonal Intelligence, Intrapersonal Intelligence, Naturalist Intelligence, and Existential Intelligence. Any person with the 4th Intelligence which is Visual-Spacial Intelligence has the capacity to think in images and pictures, to visualize accurately and abstractly.

A person may have all 9 intelligences but without Choitonyo (love for humanism), none can be human regardless of color and race, none can get closure to Humanity.
