8 Different Types of IQ
you think IQ tests provide the best indication of
intelligence? Not exactly.
Traditional intelligence tests usually measure the logical
and mathematical components, but there are actually 8
different kinds of IQ.
1. Linguistic and verbal intelligence: good with words
2. Logical intelligence: good with math and logic
3. Spatial intelligence: good with pictures
4. Body/movement intelligence: good with activities
5. Musical intelligence: good with rhythm
6. Interpersonal intelligence: good with communication
7. Intrapersonal intelligence: good with analyzing
8. Naturalist intelligence: good with understanding
At first glance, you can immediately see that the
performance of your child in school is very much measured
by 1, 2, 6 and 7.
If you child has a high IQ in these areas, he or she
would probably breeze through school if other conditions
On the other hand, if your child is someone with a low
IQ in those areas, he or she might struggle to do well
This does not mean that your child is stupid or anything.
He or she could very well have a talent for something that
most people do not have. It is just that our education
system does not place much emphasis on those areas.
In such a case, what then could be done?
