    As a matter of fact, I believe that professions have a very strong relation to some intelligences. For example, teachers have a direct connection to the linguistic intelligence, therapists have a connection to interpersonal intelligence, and surgeons have a connection to the kinesthetic intelligence. The reason behind this is probably because the intelligence they develop the most early on determines the profession they will have in the future. Those who like to write in high school can become lawyers, journalists or poets, and those who play an instrument could end up as a composer or a conductor of an orchestra.

  2. Howard Gardner thoery bascially states that if a person is good at multiplication tables, and another person is good at another subject, that doesnt mean that he's smarter than the other, it means somebody grasp on to the subject more than others. I think there is a relationshop between professions and intelligence types. Gardner say's they are a few types of intelligence. Logical-Mathematical Intelligence, Linguistic Intelligence, Spatial Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, and Personal Intelligences.
    For example, if you are not musicaly intelligent, then why are you going to look into the music business as a composer. If you do not have Personal Intelligences, why are you going to look into a profession that involes math. Therefore, there is a relationship between professions and intelligence types.

    There is a relationship between intelligence types. The types of intelligences that Psychologist Howard Gardner has identified are linguistic, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, spatial, musical, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. An eighth intelligence is being talked about by Howard Gardner. This eighth intelligence is called naturalist intelligence. The naturalist intelligence refers to the ability to recognize and classify plants, animals, cars, artifacts, rocks and various other things. To do certain professions you need to have certain intelligences. For example, a soccer player or a swimmer has to have a bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. If they don’t and have a linguistic intelligence they will not be able to succeed in their profession, but might succeed in writing. Accountants would be lost in their sea of numbers if they didn’t have a logical-mathematical intelligence.

  4. Gardner's theory recognizes 7 different intelligences. They are logical, linguistic, spatial, musical, kinesthetic, and personal intelligences which is divided into two different intellegences;interpersonal feelings and intentions of others and intrapersonal intelligence, the ability to understand your own feelings and motivations. Gardner states that even though the intelligences are seperated from each other they rarely operate independently. For example an architect uses logical intelligence to figure out distances and angles of structeres and spatial intelligence to create mental images of what a devoloping building will eventually look like.

    I believe there is a relationship between professions and intelligences. An intelligence is something your good at, which leads to a passion. A person might choose psychology as a career because they have an interpersonal intelligence. Since their are so many intelligences their are lots of professions

    I believe that there is some type of connection between professions and intelligences. Howard Gardner proposed, in 1983, that he believes that there are several types of different intelligences. The seven different types of intelligences' which are linguistic, logical, visual, bodily, musical, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. What I understand from his discovery is that there has to be some type of relationship between the career someone chooses and their intelligence. For example its not good for someone that isn't intrapersonal smart to find a career where you have to re-discover yourself. If someone is interpersonal smart it would be good if their career ends up in psychology and not playing an instrument. In choosing your career I think it is necesary for their to be some type of relationship between the profession chosen and which type of intelligence is your strongest trait.

  8. I believe intelligence types have almost everything to do with professions. Going through high school is a perfect example. Throughout the next 4 years we have to decide on what we want to do for the rest of our lives. For the past couple years (and I'm sure in the future) we will start to identify what kind of intelligence types we possess. As we move along this path, we are starting to get the idea of which ones we happen to possess. Along the way, we will start getting an idea of what we want to do by narrowing the professions down. High schoolers have the common sense to know that if they have a strong interest in music (Gardner's "Musical Intelligence") that they most likely won't start planning careers that involve some sort of branch from Naturalist Intelligence.
    Anyways, focusing more on the relation between professions in general, I believe that yes, humans should have one intelligence that is stronger than all the others that has to do with their chosen career. As Trenton was saying, an accountant should have a strong quality of mathematical-logical intelligence, and a psychologist should have strong qualities of interpersonal intelligences. Nobody who inherits qualities of linguistic intelligence should have to be an artist when they grow up right? Wrong. Although I believe that future careers should have to deal with a specifically strong intelligence, I also strongly admit that I think that in a society we are living in today, that people with important roles in societies and whose peoples’ lives are relied upon should have a few sub intelligences. First of all, it is usually extremely helpful with the careers we are exposed to today. Architects for example usually need a high intelligence of mathematics and logic. However, it would be kind of hard to be an architect designing buildings and such without a sub-intelligence of spatial intelligence. Without the special intelligence, how could an architect imagine what his building design should look like? How would he know what to do? The second reason sub-intelligences are extremely helpful is because in the economy we are living in today, it's pretty hard to find jobs. It looks better to have multiple intelligences so that a job can be more understandable than just numbers, or pictures, etc.. What I'm trying to say is that having multiple intelligences within an occupation enhances abilities, but it's always good to have a main intelligence so that you have an idea of what you want to do in the future.

    Everyone has different talents and gifts. The types of intelligence makes us different from all. Gardner asks if intelligence is really all on independency and if it can be tested on IQ tests, which he finds out that children have different types of intelligence throughout the stages of their childhood. Howard Gardner has 7 types of intelligence he lists. They are the following: Linguistic, Logical-mathematical, Musical, Bodily-kinesthetic, Spatial, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal intelligence. What makes professions and intelligence types similar are, if you want something to be your profession, you have to make it something you want, and earn for. Something you have fun with, yet you are very successful at what your profession is on. If you want to be a politician, you have to be good with people (interpersonal intelligence). If you want to be a dancer or a player for any type of sport you have to be very physical (bodily-kinesthetic intelligence). It all depends on your ability and what you are natural at.

  13. Howard Gardner was the first person to discover the match between different professions and types of intelligences. I agree with his theory that just because you are better at a certain subject it doesn’t mean that you are brighter, just that you understand the material in a certain subject more than others. For example, one person might be a horrible singer this means he probably won’t pursue a career in singing or becoming famous. However this same person might be really good in sports so his focus would be more on sports careers. These two skills require different intelligent which makes me to believe different profession involve different intelligent. Gardner discovered seven types of diverse intelligent. They are Logical-Mathematical Intelligence, Linguistic Intelligence, Spatial Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, and Personal Intelligences. All of them represent different areas of profession. For instance, a person with Logical-Mathematical Intelligence most likely would become a scientist or mathematical professions.

    I personally think that intelligence types has alot to do with professions. For example i think that, a engineer would have Logical Mathematical Intelligence for the fact that, that profession is pure math and science. Another way to see it is that a person with Musical Intelligence is not going to have the capability to work as a scientist or a related proffesion. Over all what i am trying to say is that a person with a certain intelligence will have an easier time doing something that has to do with that intelligence ,and would pick a profession that goes along because, of the poor grade of dificulty and the satifaction you get while doing that job that has to do with their intelligence.

    There is a relationship between intelligences and professions. Gardenr said that there were seven different intelligences that are all equally important. They are: inguistic, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, spatial, musical, interpersonal feeling and intentions of others, and intrapersonal intelligence. As an example he said that a student gifted in music may be put into a special education class in math because he isn't strong in that subject. That student probably wouldn't be a great accountant but may become a famous musician.
    Someone that wants to write poetry must be strong in the spatial intelligence to succeed as a writer. Another example is that a football or athletic player should be strong in the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. To be successful in a profession that person has to be knowledgeable with the intelligence that applies with the job. Therefore, there is a relationship with professions and intelligences.

    There is a relationship between intelligence types and professions. Let's take game design for example. Most game designers have to have multiple strengths and intelligences. Most game designers have a bachelor's degree in either Computer Science, Game Design, or Computer Engineering. This covers the "logical" intelligence. Also game designers have to get along well with people. This is the "interpersonal" intelligence. Most importantly game designers have to design a game, which involves story lines, plots, able to imagine, using music. "Visual", "linguistic", and "musical." This is just an example of the relationship between professions and multiple intelligences. There are more obvious connections in other professions as well. So being strong in more than one intelligence can help you later on, and give you more options for a profession to choose from.

    I believe that the theory of multiple intellegences by Howard Gardner is correct, that certain professions require certain intellegences. For instance, a musician may require musical intellegence for writing songs and such, while having kinetic intellegence can provide him with bigger lungs for performing in concerts. An actor will require bodily-kenisthetic energy to last through a show, but will require linguistic and intrapersonal intelligence to remember his lines and to use the way he speaks to further create the persona he his portraying. Artists, photographers, designers, architects, decorators and engineers alike definately require spatial intelligence to greatly aid them in all they do. There are eight different intellegences listed by Dr. Gardner (Linguistic, logical mathematical, spatial, bodily-kenisthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist) and I personally believe there's an intelligence for every profession.

    I believe that there is a conection between intelligence and profesions. According to Gardner there are seven type of intelligences ; visual-spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, Musical, interpersonal, linguistic, logical mathematical, and intrapersonal. All these intelligences are very different and we have at least one. I believe that we use which ever of the intelligence that we have to look or base our profesion on. If you have the Musial intelligence I dont think you would want to be a lawyer or a doctor, you would rather go and do something that your good at and know that you going to enjoy. So I think that as a kid when you develop one or more of these intelligences from there is when you start to think what proffesion you want to go into. For example if as a kid you like math, drawing and making graphs you're most likely going to want to be an architect or a designer, cause you know that its what your good at and more importantly what you like. If you are interpersonal in other words people friendly your not going to want to go into a profession were you're by yourself all day and have no interaction with other people, your going to want to be an operator or something.

    There is no doubt that intelligence types and professions have a relationship. This is because obviously if you are intelligent in a certain area, it is more likely to choose a profession in this area. For example, if person has musical intelligence, they are far more likely to be in a band or something similar than to be a writer. Gardner originally thought of seven intelligence types: kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, linguistic, logical-mathematical, intrapersonal and spatial. Also an eighth intelligence type, naturalistic, was added recently. People can also have both linguistic and kinesthetic intelligence or any other combination of intelligence types, they aren't just limited to one type per person. Basically, different professions require different intelligence types.

    I believe that the Gardner’s theory is accurate, if you are better let’s say at math, then you will probably be better as an accountant or like professions rather than a musician. There are 8 different intelligences; naturalist (nature smart), intrapersonal (self smart), interpersonal smart (people smart), music (music smart), bodily-kinesthetic (body smart), spatial smart (picture smart), logical-mathematical (reasoning/number smart), and linguistic (word smart). You do not have to necessarily choose a profession that has to do with your intelligence, but you will be able to perform better if you do. Most teachers have or are strong in the intelligence of linguistics, they are therefore better at explaining information than someone without a strong intelligence in linguistics. So in conclusion there is a connection between the professions and intelligences.

    Many people are born with certain gifts and talents. These gifts and talents could intertwine with their own intelligence and the profession that they are in. In Gardner's theory he stated that there were seven different intelligences that were all important to any profession one would take on. The seven different intelligences are linguistic intelligence, musical intelligence, logical-mathimatical intelligence, spatial intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, personal intelligence, and interpersonal intelligence. For example, when a poet expresses his or her words into the poem that he or she is writing, they are putting their emotions into what they are doing which is the expression of linguistic intelligence. If the poet changed to a different profession such as a mathematician this person may be able to express the same emotion into a different topic an begin to resemble another intelligence like a logical-mathematical intelligence. Another example would be a surgen having to keep up with long hours of surgery. A surgen may show a sign of bodily-kinesthetic intelligence because he or she must be able to function throughout long periods of times with keeping their hands steady and their stamina high like a football player may have to do throughout a game. This exemplifies that a person's intelligence does cross with the many professions that one may have, and how one could have mutiple intelligences that could be complete opposites in the professions that they are in. Also, as the intelligence relates to a profession so does the happiness of a person and how they obtain their happiness. For example, cooperative happiness is when you gain happiness when working with a group of people in a group project. Someone whose profession is working with a group of other scientists then he or she will obtain great happiness towards what they are doing. This shows that if one has mutiple intelligences in different professions they will gain something out of what they are doing that they would enjoy.

  22. I think the relationship between professions and intelligence types are strongly related.Your Mi effects alot of what you're interested in selections of profession and carreers.Its known as skills that you're mostly good at.These skills wether is social,spirit pacial, or any more kinds that you have can help you already think of the profession that you would like and know to be good at it.For example,a profession such as law.People with logical intelligence would enjoy being in law enforcement attorneys and such.My sister or any individual who would love to have an carrer in the law attorney shows some multiple intelligence and characteristics that relates too it.My sister is has strength in reading,language,vocabulary,logic,being talkative,loud and always having to defend somebody who needs help are all characteristics of a lawyer.She knows it and has it in mind to become one.

    I do agree that chosen professions and intelligence types share a common denominator. It is obvious to me that most people would select a profession that is best suited to the way they process (intellectually, physically, etc.) Gardner was able to identify different intelligences and as a result giving answers to why people make certain choices and decisions into which profession they chose. For instance, an orthodontist would need logical- mathematical intelligence to calculate how many centimeters teeth need to move for perfect alignment. In addition, interpersonal intelligence and intrapersonal intelligence are qualities orthodontists most have to keep patients comfortable, loyal and happy with their service. In brief, I believe Gardner is intelligent in categorizing intelligence; which leads me to believe that intelligence types play a role in profession choice.

  26. A persons intelligence type has a big role in what a persons professions are and should be. Being that every human is different, everyone's minds are set up different. As Howard Gardner has explained in his theory of multiple intelligences there are eight different kinds of intelligence types, ranging from Linguistic intelligence to Spatial intelligence.With this theory he explains that with a certain intelligence type a person would be better suited for specific jobs. For example if a person has linguistic intelligence were they pay very close attention to the meaning and order of words. This person would be better suited for a job as an English teacher were vocabulary and grammar play a key role. This shows that a persons profession and intelligence type have a strong relation.

    Yes, I believe that people of all intelligences follow the profession that is most like their own intelligence. For example, people with the interpersonal or intrapersonal intelligence would probably end up becoming physiatrist or a guidence counsellor because they can understand the thoughts, wishes, fears, and motivations of other people. Or for another example, for someone who has the logical-mathematical intelligence would most likely become a researcher or scientist of some kind because it contains the ability to locate patterns, reason deductively and think logically.

    I believe the theory that Howard Gardner has issued is correst. There are many types of intelligences out there and like Gardner said many adults find themselves in jobs that do not use their intelligences. I think that a interpersonal intelligence person would be more happy doing something along the lines of working on the news, or being a doctor or anything that she could be with other people other then being in a office all day at a desk and not socializing. There are eight intelligences that Gardner has listed are 1) Linguistic intelligence ("word smart") 2) Logical-mathematical intelligence ("number/reasoning smart") 3)Spatial intelligence ("picture smart") 4)Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence ("body smart") 5) Musical intelligence ("music smart") 6) Interpersonal intelligence ("people smart") 7) Intrapersonal intelligence ("self smart") 8) Naturalist intelligence ("nature smart"). There's tons of intelligences there you just got to find the one that fits you and what you are most like. Like Gardner has said the multiple intelligence gives everyone a whole new way to look at their lives. So, yes there is a relationship between intelligence and professions.

    Along with everyone else's comments, I know full well that the intelligence types Howard Gardner formulated correlate with professions. The seven different intelligence types were created based on the different things people are competent to. For example, I have always had an instant connection to the performing arts; music, theater, and dance are all areas of the performing arts that I have found myself driven too. Noting that, the types of intelligence I would consider for myself are both Musical and Linguistic intelligence. I'm musically inclined as well as gifted with the ability to effectively use language to express feelings and emotions though drama. The question is, where does this intelligence relate to a profession? Think of it this way, Stevie Wonder can't be a pianist unless he can play the piano, correct? And we all know for a fact, Stevie Wonder can play the piano. He has musical intelligence, which lead him to becoming the amazing, inspirational musician he is today. Dwayne Wade, from the Miami Heat basketball team, has to be bodily and kinesthetically intelligent to be able play basketball so well. Aaron Temkin Beck, the famous American psychiatrist (founder of cognitive therapy), is Interpersonally intelligent. He is concerned with the capacity to understand the intentions, motivations and desires of other people. The type of intelligence you posess can lead you to the profession that's just right. Howard Gardner had a very bright idea in creating multiple intelligences because they have such a strong relationship with professions.
