The theory of multiple intelligences differentiates intelligence into specific, primarily sensory modalities, versus seeing intelligence as dominated by a single, general ability. This model, first proposed by Howard Gardner (1983), articulates seven individual criteria for a behavior to be considered an intelligence:
1. Logical mathematical
2. Linguistic
3. Musical
4. Spatial
5. Bodily kinesthetic
6. Interpersonal
7. Intrapersonal

For this assessment, presume you are going to test and compare dimensions of intelligence of people from cultures on two different continents. Complete the following:
• Select and define three of Gardner’s dimensions of intelligence.
o Explain how you would test these three different dimensions of multiple intelligence in each culture. Do you need to test differently? Why?
o Explain how Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligence illustrates cultural differences.
• Choose two very distinct cultures on two different continents. Measure each culture using the three Gardner dimensions you have selected for this assessment.
• Compare and contrast the two cultures you have chosen:
o What type of intelligence does each culture favor?
o What does it mean to be intelligent in each culture? What does intelligence mean in each culture?
o What is the history of each culture?
o What is the environment like?
Additional Requirements
• Include an introductory paragraph and a concluding paragraph.
• Include a minimum of three research resources.
