What are Multiple Intelligences (MI)?

Multiple Intelligences are the set of nine distinct intelligences identified by Howard Gardner of Harvard. This theory has emerged from cognitive research and "documents the extent to which students possess different kinds of minds and therefore

learn, remember, perform, and understand in different ways," according to Gardner (1991).

According to this theory, "we are all able to know the world through language, logical-mathematical analysis, spatial representation, musical thinking, the use of the body to solve problems or to make things, an understanding of other individuals, and an understanding of ourselves. Where individuals differ in the strength of these intelligences - the so-called profile of intelligences -and in the ways in which such intelligences are invoked and combined to carry out different tasks, solve diverse problems, and progress in various domains."

The learning styles are as follows:

  1. Visual-Spatial
  2. Bodily-kinesthetic
  3. Musical
  4. Existential
  5. Interpersonal
  6. Intrapersonal
  7. Naturalistic
  8. Linguistic
  9. Logical -Mathematical
