Traditionally, someone who is intelligent is defined as an individual  who can solve problems, use logic to answer questions, and think  critically. However, psychologist Howard Gardner has created a much  broader definition of intelligence called multiple intelligences, which  is more focused on our areas of learning preferences. For this  discussion, please complete the following:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of intelligence (IQ) and multiple  intelligences (MIs) by comparing and contrasting the differing variables  associated with each.
  • Thinking critically about these foundational differences, comment on  how Gardner’s ideas about learning preferences might change the way we  assess a person’s strengths and weaknesses.
  • Click the following link and take the MI assessment (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.. Review your results. 
    • Do you agree with the assessment? How can what you have learned about yourself help support your learning performance?  List at least two behaviors you could change or traits you could  develop in your own behaviors, and explain how they support your  assessment results.
