My overview of Garners theory and its significance is that everybody is different, and has a different learning style. Garners theory is that there are seven types of intelligences and they are all separate and support learning. My understanding of each of the seven intelligences is, Logical mathematical intelligence is good for individuals that are good at reasoning, and recognizing patterns to analyze problems. Linguistic intelligence would be individuals that are good with oral and written skills; a public speaker would be a good example of linguistic intelligence. Special intelligence is an individual that is good with judgment or organization; they are also good with manipulating mental images to solve problems. Musical intelligence are individuals who are good at recognizing musical patterns and tones. Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence are people who have the ability to perform and have good physical control. Interpersonal intelligence are people who are good with interacting with others, they are also good with understanding others feelings, and their intentions. Different form interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence is being able to understand their own emotional state and feelings. Two of the intelligences that apply to me would be interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence. Interpersonal because I have always been able to pick up on how someone is feeling or state of emotional being. When I was in high school I was told I was good at communicating verbally, and creating a positive relationship with others. Intrapersonal intelligence applies to me because I am good at knowing and analyzing my own strengths and weaknesses. For example me knowing what I am good at, what I can do and what I am capable of doing. I also understand the basis for my own motivations and feelings.
