There are many ways a human being learns. Many theories have been formulated to explain how we do just that. Gardner's theory of how we learn, is that there is a biological source and cultural source. Biological source means particular types of intelligences and cultural source means particular reasons or needs for learning. Gardner feels, that there is certain parts of the brain that are access points for seven different types of learning. Gardner’s seven different intelligence's are Logical‐Mathematical Intelligence, Linguistic Intelligence, Spatial Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Bodily‐Kinesthetic Intelligence, Interpersonal Intelligence and Intrapersonal Intelligence. In the paragraphs that follow, I will talk about two of the seven intelligences that most closely apply to myself.
Logical-Mathematical Intelligence, is an intelligence that hits real close with me. Logical-Mathematical Intelligence, is the ability to detect patterns, reason deductively and think logically. This intelligence, is used most with scientific and mathematical thinking. Mathematics, is a field I hate with a passion, but being in the retail field I use it a lot. I have to be able to give customers the cost of items with the discount amount off the top of my head. I need to be able to process these prices quickly and correctly to get sales. I also, have to close the store at the end of the night and make sure the cash drawers all equal one hundred dollars, before there put into the safe.

This pattern, is a prime example of how this intelligence is use closely by me everyday. In a world where money is everything, I would say this intelligence hits home to everybody.
Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, is an...
