Multiple Intelligence – The Eleven Ways to Start Fully Use Your Brain!


Smart person will learn more from a foolish question than, a foolish person will learn from the smart answer.










Have you ever wondered what would be like to be a genius who uses limitless resources of your brain?

If you want to know the secrets of people who are incredibly smart and multi-talented and if you want to know how inaccurate are psychological tests which assess human’s IQ, then read on this innovative, in-depth explanation about this what you really have inside your head!

General explanation of the term ‘intelligence’ tells us that this is an ability of human minds to solve problems, to understand ideas, to reason, to plan, to think abstractly, to learn quickly and to make conclusions from past and present experiences.

During your life, you have probably met with the term ‘IQ level’, which refers to the intelligence quotient that is used to measure a stage of someone’s logical-visual-spatial capabilities. On occasion, some of us have to complete an IQ test for purposes such as assessments tests (for higher education facilities) or a recruitment process when applying for a new job or clinical purposes, etc. 

Unfortunately, most of these tests are focused on measuring only a particular area of the mind, which means that this is not relevant to the total level of intelligence that we have.

Tests are suitable to classify logical-mathematical and visual-spatial skills, which are parts of global intelligence, but they do not compose its complete sense. 

If you think about it a little bit deeper you would come to the conclusion that it is not really fair that so many of the psychological assessments are based on testing mainly those areas and no other hidden skills that are equally, or even more important.

Intelligence of human being is much more complex than this what is being clinically analysed and those types are not the only ones.

For example – there are at least eleven mental fields that human beings display which together make a more sophisticated intelligence in a global sense. Exploration and stimulation of all of these untapped areas give you an opportunity to use a much bigger part of your mind and progress into its development (technically into infinity).

So if we need to measure someone’s IQ level, we should consider the involvement of multi-sensory tasks – tests that require the participation of many different skills, senses, abilities, etc. Likewise, if we want to enhance our global IQ level we need to stimulate all of its types.

To survive in a 21st-century environment, we need to be prepared for all kinds of circumstances and unexpected episodes that might appear in life as we pass along the time line.

The famous American psychologist Howard Gardner proposed a concept of multiple intelligence in 1983 in his book ‘Frames of Mind’, they are listed and briefly described below the mind map so that you are more aware of how your mind actually works in totality.

Please have a look at the mind map below which simply shows different types of intelligence based on experiencing and approaching reality from many different angles.


As you can see, when we visually consider the complexity of the mind, we can truly state that the results of the standard test (which apparently measure total IQ) are not remotely equivalent to our real global IQ level.

And moreover, it is certainly something that we cannot fully rely on while assessing anyone’s ‘mental value’.

Here is the short description what every each of them means:

Logical – is responsible for mathematical and logical operations. It plays a key role in analyzing data and resolving issues using deductive reasoning.

Linguistic (Verbal) – when well developed, it helps to express ourselves through speaking and writing. It allows us to be good listeners and is crucial in the communication process when interacting with other people.

Visual/Spatial – makes it possible to notice more details in the environment and think about things three dimensionally. It helps us to recognize images, patterns and strongly cooperates with our imagination. It is also a key feature in the learning process as it helps in speed-reading and mind mapping.

Bodily/Kinesthetic – is responsible for our physicality and helps us to coordinate our body with the mind. It is very useful when we practice any sport or another type of activities that involve our body. It helps to expand awareness of our own body and all its physiology.

Musical – gives us the opportunity to appreciate music and recognize different sounds, beats, rhythms, changes in pitch and tone. This type is also the ability to perform music.

Naturalistic – allows us to understand the world of nature, animals, plants and our role within it.

Interpersonal – it is responsible for our ability to interact with others. Helps us to recognize their emotions, intentions, motivations, and desires.

Intrapersonal – gives us the opportunity to understand ourselves, own behaviors, emotions, feelings, etc. Part of this type of intelligence is also our spiritual intelligence, which helps us to be in touch with our inner self and grow into the spiritual world (formless).

The ‘Naturalistic’ type was added in 1999 by Gardner, and currently, all these eight types have been accepted by psychology. Professor Gardner also has been considering ‘Existential intelligence’ which makes us aware of who we really are and question our place within the multi-dimensional reality (universe). However, it has not been accepted as a conventional type yet despite much evidence of its importance in quantum mechanics.

Interpersonal and Intrapersonal types contain elements of ‘Emotional Intelligence’ but in my opinion, this type is so important in everyday life (and the subject of it is so immense) that it deserves separate attention. Emotional intelligence is required for building up healthy relationships with others, empathy and how we feel, behave and react towards others.

Emotional intelligence is required for building up good relationships with others, empathy and how we feel, behave and react towards others. Emotional intelligence is also crucial as it helps to maintain your own well-balanced mental health, which is essential for all other aspects of life.

I would also like to address separately the ‘Artistic (creative) intelligence’ modality which helps us to create new things and think innovatively. Nearly everyone has their own genius/hobby that helps them to relax and express the mind artistically.

Some scientists would probably disagree that artistic talents or abilities are classified as a type of intelligence, but I will describe it as one of the types now since I believe that this is one of the human’s minds abilities that if is not possessed can be developed. All great works of art come from this creative genius part of the mind and spill out into all the other described fields of intelligence.

A perfect example of this is Leonardo Da Vinci, who had expressed his genius in various areas such as writing, music, painting, sculpture, architecture, philosophy, math, astronomy, science engineering and many others.

Da Vinci was named as a visionary genius because his ideas and creations that were conceived far ahead of his time. He gave birth to ideas such as solar power, helicopter, calculators, plate tectonics and he also possessed advanced knowledge of anatomy, optics, civil engineering and hydrodynamics.

Once we get acquainted with his biography and his achievements we can surely state that he had been using his entire brain to devise such ingenious ideas.
