09 Mar

The theory of multiple intelligences was developed by the American psychologist Howard Gardner, around of  1980 years.InteligenceMultiple2
It is an alternative to the idea of ​​innate ability, born of idealistic philosophy and running through most of the psychological chains of today, challenges the idea of ​​IQ (Intelligence Quotient) and also those ideas that focus on all skills in school.
Introduces the concept that different professionals should have different cultures, a repertoire of human skills to help them in solutions, culturally appropriate, to resolve their personal, family and social problems.

Gardner worked in reverse the idea of ​​development, thinking more about what skills have resulted in human achievements, and said:

“A) the development of different abilities in normal children and gifted children; (B) adults with brain injuries and how they do not lose the intensity of their intellectual production, but one or a few skills, while other skills are even affected; (C) exceptional said populations, such as idiot-savants and autism, and how the former can have only one competence, being quite unable in other brain functions, while autistic children have absences in their intellectual abilities; (D) how was the cognitive development across the millennia “(Gardner, 1985).

Idiot-savants or savantism (the French savant, “wise”) is considered a mental disorder in which the person has great intellectual ability combined with an intelligence deficit.
Linguistic intelligence are the components of sensitivity to sounds, rhythms and meanings of words, as though the music associated with the first intelligence manifests the ability to enjoy, compose or play a piece of music, logical-mathematical is sensitivity to patterns, order and systematization, spatial ability to perceive the visual or spatial world, puzzles and games that require visual skills, kinesthetic is the ability to create products through the use of part or all of the body is how to produce and grace expressions from verbal or musical stimuli using some coordinated muscle or athletic ability, interpersonal ability to understand and respond appropriately to moods, temperaments and motivations of other people and finally, and finally intrapersonal intelligence is organizing one’s own feelings, dreams and ideas and can make use of this resource for solving personal or social problems.
The virtual world is related to all of them and not only intrapersonal as one might think and this study is true not only for autistic and gifted people, but for everyone.
