Key Ideas

Multiple Intelligences

Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner described nine different types of intelligence in his book Frames Of Mind: The Theory Of Multiple Intelligences.

Each ‘type’ of intelligence can be an area of strength to a certain degree, where one excels. Everyone scores differently in this and has different levels of each type of intelligence.

Naturist - Nature Smart

There are people who find nature to be meditative and feel closely connected to trees, rivers and flowers. The natural elements around them like the clouds and the universe attracts them.

They make great astronomers, botanists, geologists and landscape architects.

Interpersonal - People Smart

Some people love interacting with friends, family and colleagues. They understand body language, and communicate better and are sensitive to others feelings, perspectives and viewpoints. This super-important intelligence type can be applied to most careers.

Interpersonal Intelligence types can have great careers as managers, psychologists, teachers and social workers.

Musical - Sound Smart

Many people have an enhanced musical sensitivity, being able to understand and differentiate between pitch, rhythm, timbre, and tone.

They can be great music conductors, composers, music teachers, and DJs.

Logical-Mathematical - Number/Reasoning Smart

Some people are numbers-oriented. They love figures and are easily able to think quantitatively and symbolically. They are great at sequential reasoning, abstract thinking and inductive/deductive thought patterns.

Logical-mathematical intelligence types can be great economists, scientists, analysts, auditors and accountants.

Bodily-Kinesthetic - Body Smart

The physical body is easily understood and handled by some people. They can dance well, use their hands to create things and have a great understanding of kinetics.

They are good at careers requiring body activity like a fitness coach, actor, athlete or physical therapist.

Spatial - Picture Smart

Mazes and jigsaw puzzles draw some people towards them. These are the spatial intelligence types, who have great graphical skills, an active imagination, along with mental imagery and spatial reasoning abilities. They can understand blueprints with ease, and have an ability to think in 3D.

Career options for spatial intelligence types can be a graphic artist, engineer, photographer and pilot.

Linguistic - Word Smart

Some people are masters of language. They can learn multiple languages, write great poetry, prose or speeches. They can communicate well and explain complex meaning. This universal type of intelligence is found in journalists, public speakers and writers.

Radio jockeys, politicians, TV hosts, and lawyers are great careers for linguistic intelligence types.

Intra-Personal - Self Smart

Some people go inward and are able to understand their own thoughts, fears, desires and emotions. They can ‘witness’ oneself and others and have a deeper level of human understanding.

Psychologists, spiritual leaders and Gurus are examples of people with high intrapersonal intelligence.

Existential - Life Smart

Some people have deep insights about life and the universe, being able to talk about existential stuff, evolution, human species and the meaning of life.

Such ‘life-smarts can be great authors, philosophers, writers and motivational speakers.

Being Intelligent

Most of us think of intelligence in a one-dimensional way, that is thrust upon us in our formative years. Excellence in academia, passing IQ tests and the ability to retain facts and figures in our memory is generally considered the definition of intelligence.

In the past few decades, this has completely changed, with intelligence now being considered as a learned skill, having multiple dimensions and variety.

SIMILAR ARTICLES & IDEAS:

Emotional Intelligence( EQ/EI)

Is the measure of an individual’s abilities to recognise and manage their emotions, and the emotions of other people, both individually and in groups.

Benefits of a higher EQ
  • Ease in forming and maintaining interpersonal relationships and in ‘fitting in’ to group situations.
  • A better understanding one's own psychological state, which can include managing stress effectively and being less likely to suffer from depression.
IQ and EQ

There is no correlation between IQ and EQ scores.

IQ has no connection with how people understand and deal with their emotions and the emotions of others (EQ). 

You simply can’t predict emotional intelligence based on how smart someone is.

The Three Components Of Cultural Intelligence

Cultural Intelligence (CQ) is a system comprising of three well-connected components:

  1. Cultural Knowledge: The content and process knowledge of the various cultures.
  2. Cross-cultural Skills: A wide range of skills that pertain to the various facets of a culture, like relational, tolerance of uncertainty and ambiguity, adaptability, empathy, and the ability to understand other people's feelings.
  3. Cultural Metacognition: Also called cultural mindfulness, is the art of being aware of the cultural context, the subtleties of various situations, and the kind of strategies that can be taken.
How To Develop Cultural Knowledge

One can develop cultural knowledge through newspapers, movies, travelling to various countries, and interacting officially or personally with people of different cultures, learning new traditions, customs, cuisines, and rich new ways to live life.

One can identify and analyse the different cultures and utilize the knowledge in future.

Learning theories develop hypotheses that describe how learning takes place.

The major theories of learning are the following:

Behaviorism theories

The behaviorist perspectives of learning originated in the early 1900s. The main idea of behaviorism is that learning consists of a change in behavior because of obtaining, strengthening and applying associations between input from the world, and observations of the individual.

  • Learning is reinforced by exercise and repetition, followed by a positive reward.
  • Learning takes place when the right parts of more complex behavior are rewarded.
Cognitive psychology

Cognitive psychology started in the late 1950s and contributed to the move away from behaviorism.

  • Instead of viewing people as collections of responses to external stimuli, people are viewed as information processors.
  • Cognitive psychology was influenced by the computer that processes information, that became analogous to the human mind.
  • Cognitive psychology understands learning as absorbing knowledge, acting on it, and storing it in memory.
  • The main teaching methods are lecturing and reading textbooks, where the learner receives knowledge passively.

Dancing to the same emotions

The synchrony between the brain activity of a performer and his audience shows insights into the nature of musical exchanges: we dance and feel the same emotions together, and our neurons fire together as well. This is especially true when it comes to the more popular performances.

Synchronous brain activity was localized in the left hemisphere of the brain (temporal-parietal junction). This area is important for empathy, the understanding of others’ thoughts and intentions, and verbal working memory used for expressing thought.

Music and the right hemisphere of the brain

The right brain hemisphere is most often associated with the interpretation of musical melody.

In the right hemisphere, synchronization is localized to areas involved in recognizing musical structure and pattern (the inferior frontal cortex) and interpersonal understanding (the inferior frontal and postcentral cortices).

Increasing our listening skills

The best way to talk to strangers is to ask for their opinion on a matter. People love expressing their views. We can then focus our attention on what they say and use it to discover further what they think.

Asking open-ended questions is the key to developing this type of communication.

Moving out of our comfort zone

The more challenging we find it to talk to strangers, the more we will grow in that area when we take action, and the easier it will become.

When we challenge ourselves and move out of our comfort zone, we experience personal growth.

For an effective teambuilding:
  • Think outside the box when defining the format that works best for all team-members;
  • Avoid activities where people are singled out and might feel embarrassed. These create the opposite of the trust-building effect needed to build strong teams.
