What are the multiple intelligences?

Visual/Spatial Intelligence

  • Someone who is a visual/spatial learner thinks in pictures. Understanding takes place best when using or creating images. Visual learners benefit from films, pictures, graphs, maps, etc.


Verbal/Linguistic Intelligence

  • The verbal/linguistic learner can absorb great amounts of information just from listening. In addition, they are often excellent at giving oral presentations. Their brains often picture words in place of images when processing or recalling information.

Logical/Mathematical Intelligence

  • These are the people who are masters of reason and logic. They love working with numbers and patterns. Excellent at drawing conclusions from gathered data, these learners are prone to asking endless questions and conducting experiments.

Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence

  • You can usually spot these people through their natural grace and rhythm. The kinesthetic learner grasps concepts most successfully while in motion.

Musical/Rhythmic Intelligence

  • Musically inclined people learn best through sounds, rhythms and patterns. Memory rhymes such as "i before e except after c…" are especially effective for rhythmic learners.

Interpersonal Intelligence

  • These are the social geniuses who always seem to know exactly what to do or say in any given situation. Great at organizing and natural born leaders, the person possessing interpersonal intelligences often learns best in a group situation.

Intrapersonal Intelligence

  • Excellent at setting and reaching goals, the learner who ranks high in intrapersonal intelligence is an effective self-directed learner. Drills and skill games are great ways to stimulate an intrapersonal learner.
