When you hear the word intelligence, the concept of IQ testing may immediately come to mind. Intelligence is often
defined as our intellectual potential; something we are born with, something that can be measured and a capacity that
is difficult to change. In recent years, however, other views of intelligence have emerged. One such conception is the
theory of multiple intelligences proposed by Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner.

This theory suggests that traditional psychometric views of intelligence are too limited. Gardner first outlined his theory
in his 1983 book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, where he suggested that all people have different
kinds of "intelligences."1 Gardner proposed that there are eight intelligences, and has suggested the possible addition of
a ninth known as "existentialist intelligence"
