In this video interview, Dr. Gardner addresses his eight classifications for intelligence: writing, mathematics, music, spatial, kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist. 

Wow that's a lot of intelligences. 

Even cooler: no one is intelligent at everything. 

A better understanding of this could help identify our intelligence's through testing, help us chose careers taking that to full advantage, and develop ways to improve/increase our intelligence's that score lower.

Janill, that would be wonderful. I hope they figure out more about that.
