Spatial Intelligence
This area deals with spatial judgment and the ability To visualize with the minds eye. These area tend to think in pictures and need to create vivid mental images to retain information. They enjoy looking at maps, charts, pictures, videos, and movies.

Linguistic Intelligence
This area has to do with words, spoken or written. These learner have highly developed auditory skills and are generally elegant speakers. They think in words rather than pictures.. Those with linguistic intelligence learn foreign languages very easily as they have high verbal memory and recall, and an ability to understand and manipulate syntax and structure.

Bodily-kinesthetic Intelligence
The core elements of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence are control of one s bodily motions and the capacity to handle objects skillfully. These learners express themselves through movement. They have a good sense of balance and eye-hand co-ordination. (e.g. ball play, balancing beams). Through interacting with the space around them, they are able to remember and process information.

Musical Intelligence
This area has to do with sensitivity to sounds, rhythms, tones, and music. These musically inclined learners think in sounds, rhythms and patterns. They immediately respond to music either appreciating or criticizing what they hear. Many of these learners are extremely sensitive to environmental sounds (e.g. crickets, bells, dripping taps).

Naturalistic Intelligence
This area has to do with nature, nurturing and relating information to one s natural surroundings

Existential Intelligence
Ability to contemplate phenomena or questions beyond sensory data, such as the infinite and infinitesimal.

Logical Intelligence
This area has to do with logic, abstraction, reasoning, and numbers. These learners think conceptually in logical and numerical patterns making connections between pieces of information. Always curious about the world around them, these learner ask lots of questions and like to do experiments.
