A Measure of Intelligence Essay
Musical intelligence is also among the more commonly noticed intelligences. Someone who is musically talented can be easily compared with one who is linguistically capable. The only difference is instead of having good vocabulary and lingual compositional skills they have a good vocabulary of pitches, instruments and melodies. They are then able to take those and, with remarkable skill, create or interpret a masterpiece containing chords, melodies, and counter-melodies, each utilizing several instruments.
“The world of the mathematician is a world apart, and one must be ascetic to derive sustenance from it” (Gardner, 150). Logical-mathematical intelligence is the ability to reason with mathematic and scientific theories. It is the ability to prove and Idea without any tangible evidence to back it up, as well as a good logical method of finding and solving problems. As such, logical-mathematical intelligence is what many people consider to be intelligence, as it receives the most academic attention. This may be true, in part, but there is much more to intelligence than that.
