Horward Gardeners theory onmultiple intelligences &its application on occupationaltesting.BEYOND CLASSIC IQ TESTS…
Genius Sports Stars… Many think sports stars are less intelligent. English footballer David Beckham is a genius,due his exceptional ability to compute andexecute the exact angles and forces required toscore a goal from a free-kick. Mere mortals cannot do this. Not so, if you are using Howard Gardners multipleintelligence theory.
Beyond classic IQ tests… Classic IQ tests involve a range of abstractquestions designed to show your language,spatial awareness and numerical ability. But to consider your "intelligence" based on an IQtest alone is to ignore a host of other mentalabilities. A low score on a classic IQ test result simplymeans youre less skilled at the type ofintelligence that particular test measures. Low IQ does not mean low intelligence, just adifferent intelligence.
