Gardners Intelligence theory speaks about 8 major intelligence types:
The capacity to use language to express and understand.
The capacity to understand underlying principles as a scientist would, or to manipulate numbers and operations and test possible solutions to problems the way a mathematician does.
The ability to represent the spatial world internally in your mind, like a navigator or pilot, a chess player or sculptor.
Bodily kinesthetic intelligence
The ability to use the body, in whole or part, to solve problems or to create.
The ability to think in music: to hear, recognize, remember and manipulate musical patterns.
The ability to empathize with and understand other people.
The understanding of self, of who you are, your own strengths and limitations.
The ability to discriminate between and classify objects in nature and living things.
