The God given 9 types of human intelligence....


In the last Dr Nazri's class, he did said about 9 types of human intelligence. Wow, Allah is so great, He just not creates human being but also help us to survive in this big and wild world. As I'm wondering about it, I find something. So, these are the 9 types of human intelligence, I discover about mine....

  1.  Spatial 
The ability to visualize with the mind's eye and judge spacial characteristics. A spatial person is good at puzzles, art and design. 

2. Linguistic 

Language ability. Important for writers, philosophers, journalists, teachers and politicians. 

3. Logical-mathematical 

Important for mathematicians, scientists, engineers and doctors. 

4. Bodily-kinesthetic 

The intelligence that controls bodily movement. Important for athletes, actors, performing artists, musicians, doctors, police officers, and soldiers. 

5. Musical 

Musical intelligence is the capacity to discern pitch, rhythm, timbre, and tone.  This intelligence enables us to recognize, create, reproduce, and reflect on music, as demonstrated by composers, conductors, musicians, vocalist, and sensitive listeners.  Interestingly, there is often an affective connection between music and the emotions; and mathematical and musical intelligences may share common thinking processes.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence are usually singing or drumming to themselves.  They are usually quite aware of sounds others may miss.

6.  Interpersonal 

Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand and interact effectively with others.  It involves effective verbal and nonverbal communication, the ability to note distinctions among others, sensitivity to the moods and temperaments of others, and the ability to entertain multiple perspectives.  Teachers, social workers, actors, and politicians all exhibit interpersonal intelligence.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence are leaders among their peers, are good at communicating, and seem to understand others’ feelings and motives.

7. Intrapersonal 

Self-reflective capacities -- having a deep understanding of the self. Important for philosophers, innovators, theologians and writers. 

8. Naturalistic 

Designates the human ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) as well as sensitivity to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations).  This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef.  It is also speculated that much of our consumer society exploits the naturalist intelligences, which can be mobilized in the discrimination among cars, sneakers, kinds of makeup, and the like. 

9. Existential 

Sensitivity and capacity to tackle deep questions about human existence, such as the meaning of life, why do we die, and how did we get here.

So, which one are you?


  1. entri ini mengingatkan saya ttg cendekiawan islam yang dapat menguasai pelbagai bidang, seperti al-khindi, al-farabi..dan ramai lagi..

    ...terfikir kenapa sekarang kita hanya fokus pada satu-satu bidang, sedang Allah mengurniakan yang sama kpd kita..
