Multiple Intelligences

This theory suggests that there are eight types of intelligences including Linguistic, Logical-mathematical, Spatial Bodily-Kinesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, and Naturalist Intelligences. Every person uses all of these intelligences, but may be stronger in some areas and weaker in others. Depending on which intelligences you favor, you will learn better in certain situations and by particular methods. An attached link provides a Multiple Intelligence test- find out what you are!
