The 4 Types of Intelligence

As a collective, society has sought out ways to define Intelligence. We have tried using IQ tests designed to rank people based on their innate intelligence level. Exams, class work, school grades, and the ability to learn certain things have also been used to test and rank Intelligence. These methods are consistently used because they have some credibility, enough to give a general sense of a person’s Intelligence. Despite widespread use, these methods aren’t accurate. Howard Gardner, a Harvard professor and psychologist, thought this when he came up with the Theory of Multiple Intelligences.
