Multiple Intelligences are a new educational theory proposed by Howard Gardner in 1983. Multiple intelligences describe an array of different kinds of intelligences exhibited by human beings. This theory consists of verbal-linguistic, logical and mathematics, visual and spatial, bodily kinesthetic, musical-rhythmic, intrapersonal, interpersonal, natural and existentialist intelligences. According to Gardner, each individual manifests varying levels of these different intelligences, and thus each person has a unique cognitive profile. Recently, there are numerous researches are being conducted in the area of multiple intelligences.
