    Intelligence Types Test Intelligence Types Test Presentation Transcript

    • Intelligence TypesTestPresentation by Ilona Jerabek, PhD 1
    • Workshop Plan Introduction Intelligence Types Test  Theoretical background  Overview of the factors covered by the assessment  Managing people according to their dominant intelligence type  Work assignment based on one’s strengths  Communicating information based on intelligence type  Coaching others to understand and make the most of their learning and information processing style  Validation of the Intelligence Types Test  Summary of results from studies  Tidbits and insights Integrating results from the Career Motivation Test and the Intelligence Types Test Question period 2
    • Introduction The theory of multiple intelligences is based on work by Howard Earl Gardner (Harvard University) It was introduced in 1983 in Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences Traditional types of intelligence, such as fluid and crystallized IQ, the g-factor, logic IQ, etc. fail to fully explain cognitive ability. Traditional definitions of intelligence are lacking in ability to fully explain performance outcomes. The theory explores various forms or expressions of intelligence available to cognition Each individual manifests varying levels of different intelligences. 3
    • Criteria for inclusion Criteria for inclusion of an intelligence type are  the potential for brain isolation by brain damage,  its place in evolutionary history,  the presence of core operations,  susceptibility to encoding (symbolic expression),  a distinct developmental progression,  the existence of idiot-savants, prodigies and other exceptional people,  support from experimental psychology and psychometric findings. 4
    • The 8 + 1 Intelligence Types Spatial Linguistic Logical-mathematical Bodily-Kinesthetic Musical Interpersonal Intrapersonal Naturalistic (Existential ) 5
    • Overview of the factors covered by the assessment 6
    • Bodily-Kinesthetic Body smart Key elements:  Control of ones bodily motions and balance  Capacity to handle objects skillfully  Sense of timing of movements  Sense of a goal of a physical action  Turning physical responses to reflexes (muscle memory) 7
    • Bodily-KinestheticUsually good at Learning/coaching tips Athletics  They process knowledge Performing arts (dancers, through bodily sensations.  They learn best by doing actors, musicians) something physically, acting it Crafts out, or physically interacting Trades with others.  New knowledge should be Manual labor & tools linked with real life examples. Protective services (police,  Move around. Pace and recite firefighters, soldiers) when learning. Medical services (surgeons,  Teach material to someone doctors, lab workers) else 8
    • Logical-mathematical Logic smart Key elements:  The ability to use logical reasoning to solve a problem  Involves number and computing skills; Ability to perform complex calculations  Ability to work with abstract patterns  Scientific thinking and investigation 9

    • Intrapersonal Self smart Key elements:  Ability to detect and discern among ones own feelings (self- knowledge) and the ability to use that knowledge for personal understanding  Ability to construct an accurate perception of themselves and use such knowledge in planning and directing their life  Introspective and self-reflective capacity; good intuition; often introverted 17
    • IntrapersonalUsually good at Learning/coaching tips Thinking and reflection  Process information alone when Awareness of their feeling learning new things Self-motivation  Brainstorm on your own first Complex ideas and problems  Keep personal notes along with Critical analysis original material  Related new material to personal Deconstructing arguments experiences Psychology, philosophy, theology  Take time to reflect and ponder the complexity of issuesDownside  Don’t rush them into action; they need Rumination to process information and fully Getting lost in one’s thoughts understand before they get going Daydreaming  Watch out for time management and Self-criticism and second-guessing project creep oneself 18

    • Gender differencesWomen scored higher on: Men scored higher on: Linguistic (+6)  Logical- Visual-Spatial (+4) Mathematical (+11) Interpersonal (+3)  Bodily-Kinesthetic Musical (+2) (+4) Intrapersonal (+2)  Naturalistic (+2) 27
    • Interesting Tidbits When trying to come with ideas for a project,  23% indicated that inspiration strikes when they spend some quiet time alone reflecting on the project (Intrapersonal);  16% indicated that inspiration strikes when they systematically analyze and consider all alternatives (Logical);  17% indicated that inspiration strikes when reading material related to the project (Linguistic). 28
    • Interesting Tidbits When asked “Imagine you had to perform a new job for just one week. Which of the following positions could you most imagine yourself pulling off?” the top three jobs were  Manager (40%),  Philosopher/Psychologist (40%).  Athlete/Dancer/Actor (30%),  The least likely job was Meteorologist, at 14%. 29
    • Interesting Tidbits 84% indicated that the best way for them to learn something new is to try it on their own – this makes hands-on experience during the onboarding process essential! Top subjects in school:  46% chose Reading comprehension and writing  44% chose Math and/or Computer Science  39% chose Biology/Science  Music came in last with 24%. 30
    • Interesting Tidbits Birds of a feather…  Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence was most closely correlated with Naturalistic intelligence.  Logical-Mathematical, Linguistic, and Naturalistic intelligence were all closely correlated with Intrapersonal intelligence.  Visual-Spatial intelligence was most closely correlated with Musical and Naturalistic intelligence. 31
    • Interesting Tidbits What do grades got to do with it?  Those who attained average grades in school scored highest on Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence.  Those who did well in school scored highest on Logical-Mathematical, Linguistic, Visual-Spatial, Intrapersonal, Naturalistic, and Musical intelligence.  And just to show that studying non-stop isn’t always ideal: those with top grades had one of the lowest scores on Interpersonal intelligence. 32
