Multiple Intelligences

While schools traditionally focus on linguistics and mathematical or logical intelligences, it is theorized that there are, in fact, seven different types of intelligences: mathematical/logical, linguistic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, spatial, and kinesthetic. Students who do not perform well in linguistic, mathematical, or logical contexts may nevertheless have remarkable talents in other types of intelligences. The theory of multiple intelligences suggests that individuals may be talented in multiple areas of intelligence.
