The 9 Multiple Intelligence (2)

We are all Divers in our own skills and talents.

Everyone learns and works differently.

And we all have more than one way of learning and working. This is one aspect of what makes each of us unique.

The 9 Multiple Intelligence

A lot of us are led to believe that we only have one gift or talent. And that if we develop this gift or talent we can be successful. But for whom? The truth is We All Have Multiple Gifts and Talents!

The link I am providing below is one of many useful tools I use to find out your way of learning and working with any subject. Including bodywork. So please feel free to down load the file from this link.

After completing email it to me so i can plan a custom lesson that is unique to your learning skills. The information you provide will be for my eyes only. The quiz will show which are your learning, and working styles that you resonate with naturally. These styles are called Multiple Intelligence. We have more than one strength/Multiple Inelegance. And the ones that are weaker can be strengthen.

Typically advisers will conclude that which ever are your strongest Multiple Intelligence determines the occupation that “fits you”. I totally disagree with this theory simple because what creates an innovator in an occupation is that they see their task from a different perspective. How we learn and perform doesn’t always coincide with what we love to do or want to do. For this reason I will not list “Careers that suit” the specific intelligence with the definitions listed below.
Below is a quick view of the 9 Intelligences. Click on the tabs above for more detail information about each one of the 9 Intelligences.

This area deals with spatial judgment and the ability to visualize with our eyes and the mind’s eye.This is obviously useful in assessing clients
This area has to do with words, spoken or written. People with high verbal-linguistic intelligence display a facility with words and languages. They are typically good at reading, writing, telling stories and memorizing words along with dates. They tend to learn best by reading, taking notes, listening to lectures, and by discussing and debating about what they have learned. Those with verbal-linguistic intelligence learn foreign languages very easily as they have high verbal memory and recall, and an ability to understand and manipulate syntax and structure.
Also known as Logical-mathematical, this area has to do with logic, abstractions, reasoning and numbers. While it is often assumed that those with this intelligence naturally excel in mathematics, chess, computer programming and other logical or numerical activities, a more accurate definition places less emphasis on traditional mathematical ability and more on reasoning capabilities, recognizing abstract patterns, scientific thinking and investigation and the ability to perform complex calculations. It correlates strongly with traditional concepts of “intelligence” or IQ.

The core elements of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence are control of one’s bodily motions and the capacity to handle objects skillfully (206). Gardner elaborates to say that this intelligence also includes a sense of timing, a clear sense of the goal of a physical action, along with the ability to train responses so they become like reflexes.

In theory, people who have bodily-kinesthetic intelligence should learn better by involving muscular movement (e.g. getting up and moving around into the learning experience), and are generally good at physical activities such as sports or dance. They may enjoy acting or performing, and in general they are good at building and making things. They often learn best by doing something physically, rather than by reading or hearing about it. Those with strong bodily-kinesthetic intelligence seem to use what might be termed muscle memory – they remember things through their body such as verbal memory.

This area has to do with sensitivity to sounds, rhythms, tones, and music. People with a high musical intelligence normally have good pitch and may even have absolute pitch, and are able to sing, play musical instruments, and compose music. Since there is a strong auditory component to this intelligence, those who are strongest in it may learn best via lecture. Language skills are typically highly developed in those whose base intelligence is musical. In addition, they will sometimes use songs or rhythms to learn. They have sensitivity to rhythm, pitch, meter, tone, melody or timbre.

This area has to do with interaction with others. In theory, people who have a high interpersonal intelligence tend to be extroverts, characterized by their sensitivity to others’ moods, feelings, temperaments and motivations, and their ability to cooperate in order to work as part of a group. They communicate effectively and empathize easily with others, and may be either leaders or followers. They typically learn best by working with others and often enjoy discussion and debate.

This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. People with intrapersonal intelligence are intuitive and typically introverted. They are skillful at deciphering their own feelings and motivations. This refers to having a deep understanding of the self; what your strengths/ weaknesses are, what makes you unique, you can predict your own reactions/ emotions.

This area has to do with nurturing and relating information to one’s natural surroundings.

This area has to do with the ability to contemplate phenomena or questions “beyond sensory data”.

such as the infinite and infinitesimal.
