Different types of intelligence

Link: https://i.redd.it/2jh2ngxu6o911.png

 

As a learning consultant, I'm familiar with most of these. However, some of them don't make sense to me. I mean, how can you be "existentially intelligent?" Why is naturalist even on the list? Why is kinesthetic a type of intelligence?

Those that have existential intelligence are typically the psychologists, social workers or guidance councelors wherein they have the capacity to talk or tackle openly to anyone about anything or specifically topics or deep questions related to life. There are people who did not graduate and got a degree in psychology or social worker but they are good at this. They can explain how life works in simplier ways where anyone could understand easily. I think-- yeah it should be on the list. I mean-- not everybody can do that, right?

It think it's best to first define what intelligence really is in the scientific sense. Based in Wiki it says - "Intelligence has been defined in many ways to include the capacity for logic, understanding, self-awareness, learning, emotional knowledge, reasoning, planning, creativity, and problem solving." So with this definition, I agree that all intelligence types mentioned are valid.

Existentialism is actually a pretty old type of philosophy. It deals with individual existence and the thoughts that normally come with being a sentient being such as freedom and choice. It is the view that humans define their own meaning in life, and try to make rational decisions despite existing in an irrational universe.

Naturalist intelligence in my interpretation has a connection with empathy and how you relate to the things that surround you. My understanding of this type of intelligence is basic at best but there you go.

Kinisthetic is a type of learning that involves body movements. A good example is whe you are in class and you tend to learn better when the professor let's you do the experiment and things along those lines.

Right. That's why for me, all intelligence listed are just right and should rightly be included there.

In fact, the types of intelligence do not impact the overall skills of an individual. They are rather like components of intelligence, of which, when a combination works in perfect, bland rhythm, it creates a person with superior intellectuality.
