Howard Gardner, multiple intelligences and education
Of course, as Gardner would insist, radically different histories and contexts go a long way in explaining distinctions between Monet and Picasso, for example. Logical-mathematical intelligence consists of the capacity to analyze problems logically, carry out mathematical operations, and investigate issues scientifically. Learning-style theory begins with Carl Jung , who noted major differences in the way people perceived sensation versus intuition , the way they made decisions logical thinking versus imaginative feelings , and how active or reflective they were while interacting extroversion versus introversion. This theoretical depth is sadly lacking in most learning-style models. There are questions around the individual criteria, for example, do all intelligences involve symbol systems; how the criteria to be applied; and why these particular criteria are relevant.
Gardner argues that there is a wide range of cognitive abilities , but that there are only very weak correlations among them. The ability to understand and develop musical technique technician, music teacher, instrument maker Interpersonal: Musical intelligence "music smart". He agrees with Gardner that there are indeed domains of intelligence that are relevantly autonomous of each other. John White has argued that there are significant issues around the criteria that Howard Gardner employs.

When multiple intelligence is used correctly the learner must use complex thought patterns. The study involves ten ESOL, ABE, and GED practitioners from across New England who participate in an eighteen month investigation of how MI theory supports instruction and assessment. Athletes, doctors particularly surgeons , dancers, physical therapists. Gardner says that our schools and culture focus most of their attention on linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligence. Research has shown that that instructional practices inspired by the Multiple Intelligences theory have resulted in high levels of authentic instruction and student engagement.
