Your Visual and Spatial Intelligence - your own private Entertainment Centre!

Having Visual and Spatial Intelligence means that you have a strong ability in one of the 8 intelligences as suggested by Howard Gardner in his work about Multiple Intelligences.

Beyond the descriptions of the eight intelligences, certain aspects of the theory are important to remember.

1. Each person possesses all eight intelligences. Each person has capacities in all eight intelligences. Of course, the eight intelligences function together in ways unique to each person.

2. Some people appear to possess extremely high levels of functioning in all or most of the eight intelligences, yet others appear to lack all but the most basic aspects of the intelligences.

3. Most fall somewhere in between highly developed in some intelligences, modestly developed in others, and relatively underdeveloped in the rest.

4. People with learning disabilities often exhibit deficits in Linguistic/verbal Intelligence or Mathematical/logical Intelligence but show strengths in other areas.

Unfortunately, schools put more emphasis on verbal/linguistic and logical/mathematical, which means that any other thinking skill remains undiscovered. Get the whole picture of all the Thinking Skills here

Analyzing the learning styles and personalities is really no more than carefully examining the dynamics and fibers of every individual.

Imagine putting 30 different people in one room and then wondering why they don’t do things the same way, see things the same way, agree on everything, and desire the same things. Yet this is exactly what society does, how training and facilitation is done, and sadly, also mass schooling. It is a self-perpetuating cycle of unproductive, unhappy people not utilizing most of their thinking skills.
