Theory Of Multiple

Theory of Multiple Intelligence Theory of Multiple Intelligences is a model proposed by Howard Gardner in which intelligence is not viewed as unitary, which includes various specific capacities at different levels of generality, but as a set of multiple intelligences, different and independent. Gardner defines intelligence as the “ability to solve problems or make products that are valuable in one or more cultures.” First, it broadens the scope of what is intelligence and acknowledges what we knew intuitively: that academic brilliance is not everything. When developing life is not enough to have a great academic record. There are people of great intellectual capacity but unable to, for example, choose their friends well and on the contrary, people are less bright in school who are succeeding in business or personal life. Succeeding in business or in sports, needs to be smart, but in each field using a different type of intelligence. Not better or worse, but different.In other words, Einstein is neither more nor less intelligent than Michael Jordan, just their minds belong to different fields. Second, and not least, Gardner defines intelligence as an ability. Until very recently, the intelligence was considered something innate and unchangeable. One was born intelligent or not, and education could not change that fact. So much so that in times very close to the mentally handicapped are not educated, because they considered it a wasted effort. Considering the importance of the psychology of multiple intelligences has to be more rational to have a purpose for everything we do, not only through these intelligences. Since objectivity aside, that is the order to capture the world.
