    Howard Gardner's theory on multiple intelligence states that we have multiple intelligences instead of having only a general intelligence that underlines the performance in all tasks. In fact, scienctists argue that people may have more than the 7 traits Gardner states. Which makes me believe that indeed there is a relationship between professions and intelligences, using myself as an example i associate more with Bodily-Kinesthetic and Interpersonal intelligences because i am very aware of my body and i understand and work well with others, Therefore i would pick a profession that has me work with my traits such as being a counseler or a surgeon. So yes there is a relationship, People are going to choose their professions based on things that have to do with there different intelligences.

    Different Intelligence types often depend on the type of profession you will have in the future, for example a Gardener uses a couple of intelligence types. In the situation of the Gardener though, he would use different intelligence types other than Kinesthetic, for example when they have to deal with clients, that involves an Interpersonal intelligence type, as well as a Naturalist Intelligence type to deal with the correct palcement of the flowers and to make sure the appropriate conditions are met for that specific type of plant. This is an example to show that there isn't any one set intelligence typ for any one profession and that a profession can use multiple intelligence types to function properly, and some professions may require more than one intelligence type in their employees. The relation between profession and intelligence types is that all professions require multiple intelligence types and not just any one in specific and they require specific Intelligence types to function in a proper way.

    Multiple Intelligences

    Everyone chooses a profession that suits their talents. However, deep down, maybe even subconsciously, they are actually choosing a profession that best suits their intelligence. There are 7 different intelligence types that Gardner himself has identified. These 7 intelligences are Visual-Spatial, Bodily-kinesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Linguistic, and Logical-Mathematical. For example a Visual-Spatial intelligent person would take up a job as an achitect or a sailor because those professions involve thunking in terms of physical space. So as you can see, intelligence types do greatly affect what profession a person will be more likely to chose.

    "Today, Indian engineers make $7,500 a year against $45,000 for an American engineer with the same qualifications. If we succeed in matching the very high levels of mastery of mathematics and science of these Indian engineers--an enormous challenge for this country--why would the world's employers pay us more than they have to pay the Indians to do their work? They would be willing to do that only if we could offer something the Chinese and Indians and others cannot........ Writer Daniel Pink suggests the right brain-directed (R-directed) skills (simultaneous, metaphorical, aesthetic, contextual and synthetic) are the new ones Americans should acquire because jobs that use the left brain-directed skills (sequential, literal, functional, textual and analytic) are being outsourced to Asia and machines. Correspondingly, the new essential aptitudes, Pink says, are design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning.

    In terms more familiar to educators, Pink's left-brain skills are similar to the linguistic and logic intelligences within Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences framework, or in terms of school subjects: math, language arts and science. Some of his right-brain skills relate to the other talents proposed by Gardner: kinesthetic, musical, visual/spatial, interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligences.

    I think that there is a relation, that’s why some very intelligent people have ended up doing different things. For example, Madonna is very smart and she is in music, Einstein in math, and George Lucas in films. It shows that intelligent people and what type of intelligence they have is tied to the types of jobs they do as adults.

    Most people believe that the only way to judge a person's intelligence is through an IQ test. Though now we know better. There are many people with High IQ's such as Einstein, Madonna, and George Lucas and none of them have had the same profession. For example, Madonna was a pop star and was more musically and Bodily-Kinesthetic than Einstein and George Lucas. Einstein was one of the most brilliant people to have walked this earth but was mainly Logical-Mathematical and was very dependent. While George Lucas was Linguistic to have written Star wars.
    Or a baseball player would have Bodily-Kinesthetic to move and jump around as well as musically to memorize strategies to run or breath in a certain rhythm. Each of these professions have given the world something in someway and have made an impact. Wether you are a musician, Writer, rocket scientist, or whatever you choose to be you will always be counted on to have a multiple intelligence.

    Simply because two subjects contain similar requirements and traits, one cannot assume that a person will excel at one because they excel at the other. For example, as Howard Gardner points out ("Frames of Mind", 1983), a mathematician could not conduct an orchestra, even though it involves patterns and timing based on logic. Neither could someone with verbal/linguistic intelligence, despite the fact that sounds, rhymes, and patterns are a strength for them.

    Based on Gardner's theory, there are seven different intelligences, but it is very rare to have only one. With any profession you need to major in different intelligences to be any good at it and most of the time the intelligence type is not what you would think. For example a dancer needs more than just bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. They also need to have musical to keep a rhythm and interpersonal intelligence to be able to understand how to express them self to an audience. Gardener's theory makes it easier to understand why you excel at somethings and not at others. For instance if you are more logical-mathematical and bodily-kinesthetic then you would have an easier time remembering football plays than write poetry. It all comes down to the way your brain works.

    Gardner's theory of "multiple intelligences" is important in many fields. One of the fields commonly associated with the theory is the working world and the many professions that one may have. Gardner has outlined many different intelligences that can be present in a person. Certain ones are more suited for certain jobs than others. For example, one with a "verbal/linguistic" or "interpersonal" intelligence may be suited for a role in public speaking or advertisement. In a similar way, another person may have a "naturalistic" intelligence, and therefore be more suited to an ecological role. This shows that the connection between a person's specific "intelligence" and profession is very strong.

    Multiple Intelligences
    My personal opinion about someones intelligence and their job is that their job should be realated to their strongest intelligence. Dr.Gardner came up with seven intelligences:logical-mathematical,linguistic,spatial,bodily-kinesthetic,musical,interpersonal,and intrapersonal. Everyone is stronger at one than another. You might be stronger at lingustic while your friend is stronger at math. It doesnt mean that your bad at math it just means its not your strongest subject. People should look for jobs according to what their strongest at. For example if you have always had a musical talent then you would go and look for a job as a composer not a teacher. Pretty much what im saying is that when you look for a job you should look for a job that has to do with the intelligence your best at. Just because your strongest intelligence isnt linguistic doesnt mean that you will aslo be bad at another intelligence. Everyone is different and has a ceratin talent of their own.

    According to Howard Gardner's book Frames of Mind published in 1983, there are seven types of intelligences: Verbal/Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily/Kinesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, and Intrapersonal. I believe children are born with all of these intelligences, the question is which intelligence they choose to develop the most. Throughout our lives we may use some of the intelligences while having a main one while others exercise only one and lose most of the abilities the other intelligences have to offer. There is no doubt Beethoven and Mozart had musical intelligence and babies that talk early are said to have a dominant Verbal/Linguistic intelligence.

  13. Intelligence is measured in various ways. It can be measured in however way you want it to be. I for one, believe whatever intelligence you are best at could definitely relate to what job you will have. For example, my father enjoyed writing and reading as a child, and now he is a lawyer. I could say right now, since I am good at math, that links me directly to being a math teacher when I grow up. That is not exactly how it works, but it is a concept similar to that. If you are very skilled with your hands, may be you want to become a surgeon. You would have a kinesthetic intelligence. That links you to various jobs such as crafts, or a brain surgeon. You never know

    The theory of multiple intelligences was brought upon by Dr.Gardner on 1983. He began to notice that schools and people judged each-other on their I.Q which basically covered linguistic and logical mathematical intelligences. Gardner proposed that we should focus on other intelligences that people have. He made a list which states eight intelligences. Some of these are.... muscial, intra-personal, naturalist, spatial, and kinetic intelligences. Everybody has their own unique way to use their mind. A football player would most likely use kinetic intelligence, intra-personal intelligence, and logical mathematic intelligence. They would have to be confident which is intra-personal intelligence, smart and be able to memorize plays and such which is logical mathematic intelligence, and would be capable of being strong and using their body to get them to where they need to go which is kinetic intelligence. a Doctor on the other hand would need the intelligence of logical mathematic to know about the body and how to treat the patient and the intelligence of both people smart and self smart. he would also need word smart to know about the medications and doctor termonolgy used in the medical field. Many occupations might use the same intelligences. Both the football player and doctor would use logical mathematical intelligence and intrapersonal intelligence as well.

  15. I do believe there is a relationship between profession and intelligence types. If you are a scientist of mathematician you would probably have logical-mathematical intelligence. Dancers and athletes would most likely have bodily-kinesthetic intelligence.W hat kind of intelligence you use may influence your profession and how you are as a person.
    Verbal-linguistic intelligence would benefit and most likely be used by teachers, lawyers, public speakers, authors, and maybe students because it centers reading, writing, and speaking. Also, those with interpersonal intelligence would most likely be or become therapists, guidance counselors, those who work in schools, people who work with children because it focuses on a postitive environment, interacting well with others and understanding them.

    Gardner's Multiple Intelligence:
    Gardner expanded intelligence to reach areas such as music and spacial relations. The seven intelligences Gardner describes are: Logical-Mathimatical, Linguistic, Spatial, Musical, Bodily-Kenisthetic, Personal, Intra-Personal. People base their career on their type of intelligence. For example, a musician has musical intelligence. People are 'adroited' in one of the seven intelligences and that's what they base their career on. If you're good with words then you have Linguistic Intelligence. Every profession is connected with one of the seven intelligences.

    Multiple Inteligences

    Dr. Gardner identified multiple inelligences. At first he started with seven intelligences: kinesthetic, the body-movement intelligence, a profession such as a gymnastic or a dancer would have this intelligence. Musical, the intelligence for a fondness for music and the musical arts, a profession such as a DJ would be skilled in this intelligence. Interpersonal,the intelligence of knowing ones self, a person with a profession such as a pshycologist would be good in this intelligence. Linguistic, the intelligence of a fondness to words and literature, professions such as authores and poets would be considered strong in this intelligence. Logical-mathematical, is the intelligence of those people who have ease at working with numbers to explain things, professions such as a mathematician or a scientist would have inteest in this intelligence. Intrapersonal, is the intelligence of hearing and understanding others, some professions like teachers and councelors have high itrapersonal intelligence. Spatial, the intelligence of creating three-demensional images in your mind and bringing them into the world by creations, such professions like sculpturs or painters have are great in this intelligence. An eighth intelligence, naturalistic, was added recently, it is the intelligence of being one with nature and noticing changes in nature, professions like geographers have this intelligence.

    Gardner's "intelligences" include: linguistic, logical-mathematical, spatial, musical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, and intrapersonal intelligences. Gardner describes these "talents" (you could call them) in his book, "Multiple Intelligences: The Theory in Practice." The relationship between professions and intelligence types is very simple. Most people choose careers that are affiliated with their strongest or only intelligence. For example, if a person has the linguistic intelligence, they will probably become a lawyer, writer, poet, or teacher.

    There is now a whole field called positive psychology dedicated to understanding the process of human happiness. Researchers have concluded that work, money and leisure activities have a strong effect on happiness. If a person is interested in their current job and position, then that person would be happy enough to work even harder. The personality of the person determines their favored job.
    Multiple Intelligences determine if a person has the capability to do well in a certain profession. Multiple intelligences are used in everyday professions, such as accounting, legal services, sports, and art. Accountants require mathematics intelligence in order for them to perform long equations and manipulate numbers. Legal services, such as defense attorneys and prosecutors require more than one intelligence and so do most other professions. They use personal intelligence to protect their client or find the actual lawbreaker. Athletes, who play sports, use musical intelligence not to play instruments, but to memorize the game plan used to win the game. They also use kinetic intelligence to pass the other players by swiftly moving their bodies around, away or towards a point. The art profession requires spacial intelligence in order to perceive things differently, and thus, creating artwork that has never been created before.

    Do intelligence types define us? Do they determine what we will do and become in our lifetimes? Will it affect our professions? The answer to these questions is partly yes. We assume that someone with musical intelligence will excel as a musician. However, this may not be the case. The ability of musical intelligence may be invested into another subject of the individuals capability and occasionally liking. This is not to deny that the individual would be an exceptional musician. The ability to invest this intelligence in different subjects is supported in Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences which states that intelligences do not exist by themselves. Instead, they consist of skills and therefore can be expressed and combined with other intelligences. A combination of intelligences can produce a profession which we would believe to have no connection to the intelligences. For example, a combination of academic intelligence and social intelligence may produce a business or politics profession, not necessarily the more intellectual professions we were expecting such as science and mathematics. Lack of intelligences can as well affect the relationship between professions and intelligences. To once again use an example, a person with athletic intelligence may have some of the best athletic abilities but they lack spacial intelligence and may not be able to perform in all aspects of athletics. These aspects may include track and field athletics as well as aquatic ones. In conclusion, we cannot control intelligences we obtain and yes, they may modify your profession but it is what gives us our limits. It may not be what we want but it allows to do good in what we are good at and we may actually come to enjoy it someday and that is what a profession is all about.

  22. In MI theory, it is stated that there are seven types of intelligences that affect how people excel in areas that pertain to a certain type or types. This also affects ones personality and interests. By affecting interests, the intelligence that one possesses can affect the profession that person chooses. For example, a person with Spatial Intelligence may be drawn to a career as an architect, since it involves the designing of buildings and structures. It is also known that even though a certain activity may be centered around a specific intelligence, other intelligences may also be utilized. For example, a swimmer relies heavily on Body/Kinesthetic Intelligence to coordinate movements. However the swimmer will also use Linguistic Intelligence, which involves memorization, to perform various strokes and Musical Intelligence to maintain rhythm.

  24. Intelligence was once based solely on you I.Q., until Mr. Gardner realized that there can be differences in intelligence. An individual may have an I.Q. of over 160 and create pieces of artwork, while a biophysicist of a lower I.Q. can decode the Human Genome. He realized that there are 7 different areas in which you can be intelligent. They are visual-spatial, kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, linguistic, and logical-mathematical. I will not explain their specifics because it has already been done on this blog. People in different careers and jobs have a need for a diversity of intelligences. A translator for entities such as the U.N. may have a very high I.Q., but they are mostly linguistic. They cannot necessarily play an instrument well, even though they both involve understanding one thing and translating it into another. For example, a translator translates from English to Chinese, while a musician translates notes on a paper to sounds on their instrument. And that same musician may also have kinesthetic intelligence to coordinate the movements of their hands and possibly diaghrams to play instruments, but they could not be a dancer, which also requires specific movements of the body to create a whole. But a dancer also needs interpersonal intelligence to be able to dance with a partner or a group, to be able to understand what that person will do, and they also need logical intelligence, to be able to make specific movements to go in the direction that they want, coordinating those movements to the rythm of the music they are listening too, and musical intelligence. But those dancers could not necessarily lead an orchestra, although it requires similar knowledge of rythm.

    The theory of Multiple Intelligence wasn’t introduced into the scientific world until 1983 when Dr. Howard Garner put forth his studies on the subject. Previous to this discovery intelligence was measured by the traditional notion of intelligence which was linguistic (word smart) and mathematical (number smart) intelligence using the restricted Intelligence Quotient (IQ). Once Garner initiated the idea, a wider range of intelligence was considered including: Spatial Intelligence (“picture smart”), Kinesthetic Intelligence (“body smart”), Musical Intelligence (“music smart”), Interpersonal Intelligence (“people smart”), Intrapersonal Intelligence (“self smart”), and Naturalist Intelligence (“nature smart”) among others. Because of the new found study workplaces were able to get people of not only basic limited IQ “smarts” but of a much diverse intelligence where if put together these people can work and accomplish more to their full potential than ever before. So in all the revision was of a much greater advantage and opened more possibilities then the previously used notion could’ve ever done.

    Gardner's theory establishes seven different intelligences that a person can have. A person's intelligence type deals with many aspects of their life as it is essentially part of their personality. An individuals profession is large part of their life into which much is devoted and it is affected by their inteligence in two ways. First, because their intelligence may give them more ability at a certain profession. Second, because of how much happines such a profession can bring an individual if it deals with their intelligence type.Basicly, when a certain type of intelligence can somehow be used an a profession aperson is more inclined to go in that direction because they are more likely to enjoy it and excel at it.

    There are different types of intelligences and not all people have level in them all. For example, a baseball batter probably need to have a high level in the Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence and would not necessarily need to such a high level in Logical-Mathematical Intelligence but it does not mean that having Logical-Mathematical Intelligence csnnot help the batter detect the pitcher's pattern in throwing the balls. When someone looks for a profession they usually apply for jobs in which they know that their intelligences might come in handy. Musicians must have Musical Intelligence to succeed at what they do, but having other intelligences also helps them. For instance, musicans not only need to recognize and compose musical notes and pitches but they must also have the ability to count all the beats and rests and add the timing so that the sounds can all be perfect when played together, in order to do this they must have some capacity in the Logical-Mathematical Intelligence. Another example, a mathmatician will surely have a very high level in Logical-Mathematical Intelligence but they might also need Linguistic Intelligence to express their final results in front of people and demonstrate, step-by-step the process that he had to go through. So, professions and intelligence types go hand in hand. Depending on which type of intelligence one person has, it affects the type of profession in which they are in.

    Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences theory states that humans have several intelligences instead of a general one. He stated that there are eight different types of intelligences. For example, there is the Linguistic, Logical, Spatial, Musical, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal and Naturalist intelligence from Gardner’s point of view. He believes that everyone has different ways of thinking, and people are more enhanced at one strand than the rest. Humans may have more than one intelligence in some cases. I believe that there is a relationship between professions and the multiple intelligences because to complete your job properly, you must do the work right, and for that to occur you must have the capacity or in other words the intelligence to overcome the work. For example, if someone has the Musical intelligence; it would may be a smart idea to find a profession that has to do with music. If you have musical intelligence it wouldn’t be a good idea to for a job that has to do with sports, because you may not have the needed intelligence, which happens to be the Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence. But this doesn’t mean that just because you have the major intelligence to work with instruments and music, that you only need that one. Depending on the jobs, people may need more intelligences to achieve in their professions.

    Gardners theory of multiple intelligences was made to explain why some people are better at things than others but are worse in other areas. For example people with Mathematical-Logistic Intelligence will think more logically and have a more mathematical mind than someone with a Linguistic Intelligence, who in turn will be better at learning and speaking languages than people with different intelligences. Intelligences also are not really built in. People can have different intelligences based on where they live and their lifestyle. People who have lived a life in the desert are probably more prone to having a high Kinetic Intelligence than someone who lives and breathes computers for example.

    Cheerful enthusiasm? Relaxed warmth? Depressed sluggishness? Hostile irritability? These are the four things Sigdai Barsade projected on. Gardner's theory is very accurate, but I think there is definetly more to it then a simple IQ test. As you watch life, people have jobs that they are amazing at, but don't love to do. Some have jobs they love, but are terribly bad at. The difference between a profession and intelligence isn't as simple as people may put it. A profession is something you excel in and want to continue. A profession needs heart and cheerful enthusiam. This is where Sigdai comes in because he backs up the theory of emotional intelligence. I believe many people need this intelligence in order to truly be stable and understand themselves and others. Not everyone can excel in this, but they can try and make with what they have. A profession can or can't be a natural intelligence. For example, I know that I am really good at writing because everyone says I am. I like writing, but dance is more my style. I can excel in dance, but I know that I will never be like an AMAZING dancer, but I can try my best. An intelligence is like, in the example, me writing stories. I am very capable of doing it and exceling in it faster than a longed dance carrer. Another difference is thatyou can pick your profession, but not your intelligence. You intelligence is, according to the theory, passed through genes.
