Discover Your Brain Strengths to Navigate Life
If you’re like us, you have a suspicious and cautious view of traditional intelligence, aptitude and achievement scores. High numbers may predict potential but not necessarily success. Low numbers do not prophesize a life of fruitless effort and minimal achievements. Individuals can be misguided by their “numbers”. Parents, educators and employers may reach wrong conclusions about the true interests, potential and gifts of people. The time and money spent on these types of tests may be wasteful and at worst, destructive.
How can we expand our views of intelligence and achievement to help people navigate their life path to be the very best they can be? By striving for a life of continual learning, adventure, fun and fulfillment. We believe Howard Gardner, Harvard educator, provides an approach that is helpful to revealing and developing natural interests and talents.
Dr. Gardner suggests that traditional methods of measuring intelligence are far too limited. His list of 8 Intelligences is shown with our addition of Global cognitive thinking (creative smart) We also added examples of activities associated with the intelligences so you can readily identify the ones that may be your navigation system for life success.
