Visual/Spatial: This intelligence, which relies on the sense of sight and being able to visualise an object, includes the ability to create internal mental images and pictures. Body/Kinesthetic: This intelligence is related to physical movement and the knowings and wisdom of the body, including the brain’s motor cortex, which controls body motion. Musical/Rhythmic: This intelligence is based on the recognition of tonal patterns, including various environmental sounds and sensitivity to rhythm and beats. Naturalist: This intelligence deals with the recognition, appreciation and understanding of the flora and fauna of the natural world. Interpersonal: This intelligence operates primarily through person to person relationships and communication. Intrapersonal: This intelligence relates to inner states of being, self-reflection, metacognition (thinking about thinking) and awareness of spiritual realities.
