Multiple Intelligence Theory
A term used to refer to Gardner's theory, which proposes that there are seven (or more) forms of intelligence.
In the 1920's psychologist John Spearman came up with the theory that there is a general intellegence,
. In 1963, Raymond Cattell determined that general intelligence has two different "independent components":
- refelcts the persons ability to store and retrieve information from semantic memory. Sternberg's
has 3 intellegences:
.The theory of multiple intelligences was developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University. It suggests that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on I.Q. testing, is far too limited. Instead, Dr. Gardner proposed eight different intelligences to account for a broader range of human potential in children and adults.
A theory of intelligence saying that there are at least seven types of intelligence, not just logical/analytical intelligence that are tested by things such as an IQ test.
People are smart in different ways.
You can't test a person's intelligence with one test because then you are just testing one type of intelligence.
Examples of Multiple Intelligences
intelligence is being 'book smart'.
intelligence involves reasoning skills.
intelligence is being aware of where objects are in space.
intelligence is when someone has a good sense of rhythm.
intelligence involves a person's sense of movement.
intelligence is being 'people smart'.
intellegence is knowing yourself.
Gardner later revised this theory to incorporate three more intelligences: naturalistic, existential, and spiritual.
which was the origional theory of intelligence
which modified Spearman's theory
I.Q. testing, which the Multiple Intelligence theory says is invalid
