This article describes how people are built with certain skills yet lack others skills, and this has nothing to do with “general intelligence”. Then it describes how Dr. Howard Gardner provided a new theory that went against the old ways of cognitive science, and education. Gardner theory is that there are eight different kinds of intelligence, proving each person is unique. Then it lists the eight intelligences which are spatial, bodily- kinesthetic, musical, linguistic, logical-mathematical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. His theory is often argued, but if it were more largely accepted the world would be more welcoming and smarter.
