Traditional psychometric views of intelligence are too limited. In order to capture the full range of abilities and talents that people possess, Gardner theorizes that people do not have just an intellectual capacity, but have many kinds of other intelligence, including – Naturalist (nature – smart), Musical (music – smart), Logical-mathematical (number/reasoning-smart), Interpersonal (people smart), Bodily-kinesthetic (body smart) Linguistic (word-smart), Intra-personal (self- smart), Spatial (picture- smart).

 

 

A person might be particularly strong in a specific area, such as musical intelligence, he or she most likely possesses a range of abilities. For example, an individual might be strong in verbal, musical, and naturalistic intelligence.
