A new approach

Developed in 1983 by Harvard professor Howard Gardner, the Multiple Intelligences theory brings a fresher view into how the brain works. Gardner proposed that human beings have not one, but 8 intelligences! Even though the approach was receiving a lot of criticism, Gardner placed his assessment of whether or not an area can be considered as intelligence on a range of factors, such as susceptibility to encoding, a potential for brain isolation, the presence of core operations and others. 

Moreover, neuroscientific discoveries and proof of the concept of neuroplasticity have later confirmed the theory of Gardner. The ability of the brain to form new connections with the help of consistency and repetition allows individuals to develop multi-faceted intelligences as suggested by Gardner.
