Hello there, did you know that there is more than just book smarts and street smarts? My name is Gurkanwar Avapal, and I will talk about multiple intelligence. The theory of multiple intelligence was first introduced in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner who suggested that the traditional notion of intelligence (based on I.Q.) is far too limited. There are 8 different types. My top three are Mathematical/Logical (84%), Intrapersonal (80%), and Visual/Spatial (72%) intelligence, all of which I will show how they are used every day and later occupations.
Having a Mathematical/Logical intelligence references your ability to reason, solve problems, and learn using numbers and abstract visual information. This type of intelligence is used throughout my everyday life. I am associated with this type of intelligence because it is one of my favourite subjects in school. I like to think about things logically and in a mathematical way by finding patterns and problem-solving. This can relate to the high marks I receive in mathematics and science.
MI #1: Mathematical/Logical
Being Intrapersonal means that you are looking inward and figuring out your own feelings, motivations and goals. You analyze yourself and seek understanding. I use this form of intelligence when I perform a lot of self-reflection tasks, most specifically in my careers class. It is all based on yourself, your goals, and your passions in which creates a willingness to learn and better yourself even further.
MI #2: Intrapersonal
The reason why I have visual smarts (or intelligence) is that I am able to visualize the world accurately, recreate aspects of my visual preference, good at remembering images, faces, and fine details. This intelligence is used whenever I go to a new location/area. I use my visual perception to remember details of that specific area and then using a map could help me remember the route.
MI #3: Visual/Spatial
A possible occupation for maths/logic smarts is to be a scientist. I believe that this job is very suitable to me because of my logical and mathematical smarts which are much needed in sciences as you have to find patterns, do complex math and think through things logically. I definitely want to pursue this occupation in the future and is one of my main goals on what to do when I am older as maths and science are currently the courses that I enjoy the most.
