There is more to your intelligence that just your IQ, as people can be smart in more than one area. Multiple intelligences (MI) differentiates human intelligence into specific 'modalities'. Dr. Howard Gardner, creator of the theory of multiple intelligences, proposed seven different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential in children and adults. Throughout my presentation, I will be discussing my top three intelligences in detail, before proving I really do have that intelligence. Later I will provide suitable occupations for any or all of my top three intelligences.
Multiple intelligences- Your smarter than you think (9/18/2018)
I scored 81% for Logical/Mathematical intelligence. Logical learners are better skilled than other types in looking at a series of parts and seeing how they are interconnected. They tend to value factual information, and will want to know how you came to a particular conclusion, what led you down a certain path to your belief, if it is valid, and what facts can confirm your ideas. I enjoy and am good at puzzles, strategy games and chess I like to back many of my opinions with facts and statistics in my work and enjoy a mental challenge. I also prefer to know the reasoning behind something instead of memorizing.
I scored 78% for Visual/Spatial intelligence.Visual learners are very aware of their surroundings and are good at remembering images. They tend to learn well through visual aids, enjoy visual arts and can visualize anything in their head before creating it. Through colors, shapes, and different objects they are able to relate to the world I can remember the places once visited and settings of my dreams, the details of that space and location very vividly. I can also visualize anything in my mind before I put it down on paper. I am prefer to have diagrams, charts, graphs and pictures to accompany text.
I scored 75% in Verbal/ Linguistic intelligence. Verbal learners enjoy reading and writing and are often gifted at learning languages. They appreciate the complexities of sentence structure, word structure, meaning and sound. They also enjoy lectures and have the ability to teach others and communicate complex concepts. I enjoy writing narratives and am a avid reader. I prefer to read young adult fiction and famous classics including Anne of the Green Gables, To kill a mockingbird and The hobbit. I enjoy and am good at debating or giving persuasive speeches. I can easily explain complex ideas well to peers.
After analyzing my top three intelligences, I have found 6 possible career pathways. Children’s author (visual+verbal) I think being a children’s author would be a possible pathway for me because I get to use my verbal intelligence to write small stories and accompany it with big pictures. Statician (visual+ logical) I wouldn’t mind be a statistician, which means I would be an expert in the preparation and analysis of statistics. I should be able to see patterns quickly and understand the data collected from graphs and charts. Computer Programer (visual+logical) While I am not into technology , becoming a computer programer is not completely out ot the picture. Computer programs, people who creates computer software, must have visual and logical intelligence. Engineer (visual+logical) Engineers are people who invent, design, analyse, build and test machines, systems, structures and materials to fulfill objectives and requirements while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety, and cost. They should be able to picture the results in their head and be good with numbers. Lawyer (logical+verbal) Lawyers are people who practice or study law. They are required to analyze situations logically and should be able to persuade their audience. Becoming a lawyer sounds interesting, but I am not very good at debating. Math professor (visual+logical+verbal) My favourite of my career choices was becoming a math professor. It involves all three of my intelligences, but it is most dominent in logical intelligence (my top intelligence). I get to use visuals when teaching a class, I get to use numbers, see patterns and have to communicate with my students to teach them.
All of us have different abilities, talents, and strengths, in different categories of intelligence, and in different combinations. Recognizing the unique way you think, learn and solve problems can help you realize your full potential at work or play. As I have already mentioned, my top three multiple intelligences are logical/mathematical, visual/spatial and verbal/linguistic. Throughout my presentation I discuss how my intelligences apply to my daily life and how my career pathways have to do with my multiple intelligences.By doing so I have learned that the multiple intelligences are invoked and combined to carry out different tasks, solve diverse problems, and progress in various domains.
