HOW you are SMART
LOGO
New brain research has determined that everyone has at least
eight different kinds of “smarts”. This is called Multiple
Intelligences Theory or “MI” for short.
This is a new way of thinking about what it means to be
“smart”. It means that there are more ways to be smart than
being good at reading, writing and math.

"An intelligence is
the ability to solve
problems, or to

that are valued [by
others]."
-- Howard Gardner,
Frames of Mind, 19933.
HOW you are SMART
LOGO
People can have more brain power in some areas of “smarts”
than in other areas. This means learning occurs best when
learning uses the strongest type of brain power. You can also
strengthen those areas in which you are weaker.
As logical as this sounds, it is a revolutionary concept. Many
adults and some teachers are not aware of this new research.

Verbal/Linguistic Intelligence (Word Smart) is the capacity to
use language, your native language, and perhaps other
languages, to express what's on your mind and to
understand other people.
Poets really specialize in linguistic intelligence, but any kind
of writer, orator, speaker, lawyer, or a person for whom
language is an important stock in trade, highlights linguistic
intelligence.

Visual/Spatial
Intelligence
Spatial intelligence refers to the ability to represent the space in your
mind – the way a sailor or airplane pilot navigates the large spatial
world, or the way a chess player or sculptor understands issues of
placement in a space.
Spatial intelligence can be used in the arts or in the sciences. If you
are spatially intelligent and oriented toward the arts, you are more
likely to become a painter or sculptor or architect than, say a musician
or a writer. Similarly, certain sciences like anatomy or topology
emphasize spatial intelligence.

Bodily/Kinesthetic intelligence, (body smart) is the

Intelligence
Intrapersonal intelligence, (self smart) refers to having an
understanding of yourself, of knowing who you are, what you can do,
what you want to do, how you react to things, which things to avoid,
and which things to gravitate toward.
We are drawn to people who have a good understanding of
themselves because those people tend not to screw up. They tend to
know what they can do. They tend to know what they can’t do. And
they tend to know where to go if they need help.

Naturalist
Intelligence
Naturalist intelligence is the human ability to differentiate
among living things (plants, animals) as well as a sensitivity
to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock
configurations).
It also is used to distinguish differences in everyday things
like cars, sneakers, and kinds of makeup. Certain kinds of
sciences use this kind of intelligence to recognize patterns.
This ability is obviously important as hunters, gatherers, and
farmers; it is also important in such roles as botanist or chef.
