Howard Gardner Theory Of Intelligence
Howard Gardner and Theory of Intelligence
In the article written by Howard Gardner entitled, ?A Rounded Version: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences,? he explores why some people, even though they have performed poorly on society?s standardized intelligence tests, are significantly more successful than those who have scored well on the same tests. He covers the notion that people are not necessarily unintelligent because of poor performance on standardized tests like the SAT test. The realization of this unresolved flaw provoked Gardner to further research the matter. Through his findings, he discovered that multiple forms or styles of intelligences could be attributed to human development and performance in society. He came up with a list of seven intelligences and briefly gave some explanation as to the reasons why they are significant. However, he also notes that a person becomes a functional member of society only upon achieving a balance of these intelligences. Only being gifted with the mastery of a single form of intelligence often produces abnormal behavior; the most common are the idiot savants and autistic children.
The first of these seven intelligences is the Musical Intelligence. This is for those who have a proficiency
