Interpersonal & Intrapersonal Intelligence

Throughout the month of December, we have been discussing the different types of intelligences that make people who they are. The following two intelligence’s are considered personal intelligences and are supplementary intelligences to the ones discussed earlier in the month. Interpersonal Intelligence The interpersonal intelligence are the people who understand and easily interact with others as well as empathize and understand motivations and goals. They are able to sense emotions and relate to the thoughts and feelings of others. They usually have many friends and easily pick up street smarts and are able to be taught through group activities, seminars, and dialogs. People of this intelligence are easily able to use the telephone, audio conferencing, and e-mail. Peoples who are part of this intelligence are great organizers and turn out to be teachers, facilitators, therapists, politicians, and sales people. Intrapersonal Intelligence Not to be confused with its interpersonal, people who

Musical, Kinesthetic, & Visual Intelligence

Throughout December, I am discussing different intelligence types. Musical Intelligence This is the first of the arts intelligence that are sensitive to sounds and rhythms everywhere. They generally study better when there is music or noise in the background, but are easily taught when lessons are spoken rhythmically. They are the composers and musicians of the world and they generally grow up remembering melodies and singing and banging on everything. People dominant in this intelligence usually gravitate more to the music industry including composers, recording engineers, musicians, or DJ’s. Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence This is the second arts intelligence and they are usually the people that cannot sit still because they use their body movements to learn. Since they are always in motion they have a keen sense of body awareness and they make gestures to emphasize. They learn best by participating in role playing, hands-on learning, and other physical activity and

Verbal & Mathematical Intelligence

Throughout the month of December, I will be discussing the different types of intelligences that make people who they are and how they learn more effectively. Linguistic/Verbal This intelligence is primarily a school intelligence and listed first as it is one of the most dominant intelligences. This group of people loves to use words and they think in words, which leaves them with a highly developed auditory or verbal skill set. They generally like activities that incorporate words such as reading, poetry, word games, telling stories. The verbal group is easily taught by getting them to say and see words and they thrive with lecture, computers, tape recorders, and other multimedia. These learners usually end up in careers such as authors, journalists, comedians, lawyers, teachers, and presenters. They are easily able to listen, speak, write, explain, and teach. Logical/Mathematical This is the second major school intelligence and they are great

Learning Styles

Learning Styles are very important and they surround us everyday. It is thought that they are most important while people are still young and in school. That may be where it is most important, but the truth is that people go into different careers because of their learning styles, so if you will be talking to a group of people from a single profession or a group of people of different professions it is important to take their learning needs into consideration if you have any chance at getting the message across to them. This blog will be a series throughout the month and will discuss the different learning styles and what they may require. In the hay-day of the psychometric and behaviorist eras, it was generally believed that intelligence was a single entity that was inherited and that human beings could be trained to learn anything if it was
