Dr. Howard Gardner has created a Theory of Multiple Intelligences.
He points out that schools focus on verbal/linguistic and logical mathematical skills.
He suggests that there are at least six other kinds of intelligence that are important to develop like: visual/spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, naturalist and intrapersonal intelligence .
Gardner believes that the eight intelligences are independent, they are developed at different times and to different degrees in different individuals .
