How smart are you? How would you know?
we've gone beyond restricting our intelligence labels to
an IQ test that
measures linguistic and rational intelligences alone? How
smart is a tree? Smart enough to be a tree! Just like you have
smart enough to become you.
Howard Gardener has provided some guidelines
for determining and evaluating intelligences that determine
how we learn and think. They are just as valid as the standard
IQ intelligence, and need to be regarded as we teach adults
(and children), particularly those whom the system has failed!
Following are a few links to set a breeze into your intelligence
