MI3 OVERVIEW

Recognizing there are multiple ways to solve the same problem allows us to explore the talents and human potential of the people we interact with each day.

These talents are revealed as intelligences and are the strengths and gifts that make each of us unique. Howard Gardner of Harvard University isolated seven different ways people process information and solve problems. He named them Multiple Intelligences.

All seven Multiple Intelligences are present in each human being. One individual intelligence is not more important than any other intelligence ... it is just the unique way our minds are wired. Multiple Intelligences determine how we each go about solving challenges in our professional and personal lives. The more open we are to multiple possibilities and solutions, the richer our life experiences become.

The 5 key points of Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences theory:

  • All human beings possess seven distinct intelligences
  • Each individual has a unique multiple intelligence profile
  • Training and communication become more effective when materials and methods cater to their intelligences
  • Each intelligence occupies a different area of the brain
  • The seven intelligences may operate in consort or independently from one another
