Just like becoming a professional Handyman, it takes years of hard work and determination to master a language, and that is why we have linguistic intelligence.

I agree with Marvin’s point of view. Anyway, I don’t have any sources yet on how to accurately test multiple intelligence. Once, I do, I will surely post that here.

Thanks for explaining about multiple intelligence. I’ll keep following this Q & A to hopefully see a reliable source where the test can be taken.

The normality of the Multiple Intelligences Measurement is categorized into 3 levels. Those with high intelligence are those with percentiles of more than 78. Those with moderate/medium intelligence are those with percentiles between 24 and 77.9.

There are many MI assessment tools available online and to print for use in your classroom. These tests can provide a fascinating snapshot of your students’ innate abilities. Students should think about how to use their strengths to help them in all subjects. Maybe that musically intelligent student should make up a song to help her learn the Periodic Table of Elements. Or that visually inclined student should draw a picture to help remember the life cycle of a butterfly.

The theories mentioned were to deal with how they can help themselves to relax and make themselves calm. Just for example Music intelligence – He/she preferred to study while listening to music. Nature intelligence – preferred to study in a calm noise of nature like a river, under the tree, etc. Thanks for this and I remembered the importance of multiple intelligences. concrete rochester mn

The theory of multiple intelligences proposes the differentiation of human intelligence into specific “modalities of intelligence”, rather than defining intelligence as a single, general ability. cbd oils
