Interesting Facts About him?
8 intelligences
"We have this myth that the only way to learn something is to read it in a textbook or hear a lecture on it. And the only way to show that we've understood something is to take a short-answer test or maybe occasionally with an essay question thrown in. But that's nonsense. Everything can be taught in more than one way."
- Howard Gardner, 1997

About Howard Gardner
The Theory of Multiple Intelligences
What was his theory about?
Howard Gardner was born on July 11, 1943 in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He described himself as "a studious child who gained much pleasure from playing the piano." He completed his post-secondary education at Harvard, earning his undergraduate degree in 1965 and his Ph.D. in 1971. He had originally planned to study law, he was inspired by the works of Jean Piaget to study developmental psychology. He cited mentoring he received from the famous psychoanalyst Erik Erikson as part of the reason why he set his sights on psychology.
According to Howard Gardner, human beings have nine different kinds of intelligence that reflect different ways of interacting with the world. Each person has a unique combination, or profile. Although we each have all nine intelligences, no two individuals have them in the same exact configuration -- similar to our fingerprints.
