Dr. Howard Gardner based his theory of "multiple intelligences" on his study of child prodigies, such as this 4-year-old pianist. You listen to this and realize that many adults who have taken many years of lessons could never match this child to whom music seems a part of her very soul. Gardner's reasoning was that if some children could demonstrate such genius, that must be an intelligence that resides in the brain that others can tap into, but perhaps never master to such a degree. Gardner began in identifying eight abilities that he held to meet the criteria:of a separate intelligence: musical–rhythmic, visual–spatial, verbal–linguistic, logical–mathematical, bodily–kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. However, he later suggested that the true number could be 13 or more. One of the key takeaways is to understand that not all intelligence is measured by an IQ test and some intelligences are not only not nurtured nor rewarded in the typical classroom, but may be stifled and even punished. For example, interpersonal intelligence could be associated with a student who talks too much in class. Kinesthetic intelligence might reveal itself in a student who fidgets around too much, who can't sit still. They have an intelligence longing to be expressed but are punished in school. Almost everyone has some area of potential genius and some areas of retardation. To be successful we need to find our genius within. We will also benefit from strengthening our areas of weakness, but our greatest success will be achieved in pursuing our genius.
