According to the theory of multiple intelligences, developed by Howard Gardner in 1983, there are eight types of intelligences:
- Logicomathematic intelligence combines the ability to calculate, measure, use logic and solve mathematical and scientific problems.
- Space intelligence allows us to represent, mentally and in three dimensions, what surrounds us.
- Interpersonal (or social) intelligence allows you to act and react with others in a correct and appropriate way, to feel the differences and nuances of temperament, character and motivations of those around you.
- The body intelligence (or kinesthetic) is the ability to use one's body to express an idea or feeling, to carry out an activity or to create.
- Verbo-linguistic intelligence is the ability to think with words and to express or understand complex ideas through language.
- Intrapersonal intelligence is the ability to decipher your own emotions, needs and desires.
- The musical intelligence is the disposition to produce, appreciate, recognize and understand rhythms, sounds and melodies.
- The naturalistic intelligence classifies, discriminates, recognizes and uses knowledge about the natural environment, animals, plants or minerals.
