Gardner Multiple Intelligence Test

Understand your intelligence type and learning style

Gardner Multiple Intelligence Test

The Multiple Intelligence Theory was developed by Howard Gardner, an American developmental psychologist strongly influenced by psychologist Erik Erikson. It was first published in his 1983 book Frames Of Mind. It has become a well-used model to understand human intelligence, learning style, personality and behaviour. It is useful to help you gain a clearer picture of how you tend to see and respond to the world. At the end of the test your profile is given over 7 different intelligence types, which inlcude details of typical careers suitable for the type.
