Theory of multiple intelligences
Howard Gardner of Harvard University has identified various distinct intelligences: interpersonal, intrapersonal, visual–spatial, verbal–linguistic, logical–mathematical, musical–rhythmic, bodily–kinesthetic, and naturalistic. Gardner later suggested that moral intelligence may merit being included in his multiple intelligence model.
Later still, Gardner proposed the concept of existential intelligence.
According to Thoughtco.com:
|“||Existential intelligence involves an individual's ability to use collective values and intuition to understand others and the world around them. People who excel in this intelligence typically are able to see the big picture. Philosophers, theologians and life coaches are among those that Gardner sees as having high existential intelligence.||”|
