As an Interior Designer, it is often my job to profile individuals in order to further understand their needs. As a recent teacher, I learned further how important is to understand the individual needs of your students. Educators must understand their students (strengths, areas of strengths, weaknesses, vulnerable areas, etc.) as well as their adaptability, and endeavor to educate students on this basis. A student’s intelligence assists in developing a set of problem-solving skills. For the individual to solve his own problems or difficulties, there is a need to have a different focus, thus a person's intelligence is diverse. Intelligent is different, each person has the potential to develop in different areas according to experience, culture and the motive. The theory of Multiple Intelligences states that everyone relatively has eight independent kinds of intelligence, which differ in each person and exist at various levels. These eight types include: intelligence languages, mathematics, logic, intelligence, visual-spatial intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, musical melody intelligence, interpersonal intelligence and self-recognition intelligence. 1) Language Intelligence (Verbal / Linguistic intelligence) This refers to the effective use of spoken language or written language ability. These students excel in grammar, phonology, language, and exercise practical learning abilities. They like playing with words, enjoy reading, discussion and writing. They often use words and languages to assist them whilst studying and learn best through debating, writing, reading, research, speaking, reciting and word games. 2) Mathematical Logic Smart (Logical / Mathematical intelligence) This refers to the efficient use of numbers and reasoning ability. These students are good in logic and relationships, statements and advocates, functions and other related abstractions. They are usually fond of school mathematics or science class curriculum and enjoy asking questions or performing experiments to find the answers. They function well with things with rules and logistic sequence and like to classify or analyze things. This type of children relies on reasoning or exploring when learning. They generally learn best through computing, calculating, graphing, comparing and classifying. 3) Spatial intelligence (Visual / Spatial intelligence) This refers to the precise sense of visual space, and to the perceived demonstrated ability. These students are good with color, line, shape, form, space and are sensitive of the relationship between them. They have the ability to quickly direction. They tend to enjoy activities such as hunting, puzzles, and visual games. They like to imagine and think in images and diagrams. They generally learn best through painting, drawing, watching movies, illustrating, mapping and visualizing. 4) Limb movements Smart (Bodily / Kinesthetic intelligence) These students are good at using the whole body to express thoughts and feelings. They tend to have special physical skills, such as balance, coordination, agility, strength, flexibility and speed, as well as tactile ability. It is difficult for this type is to sit still as they like to build things by methods such as such as sewing, compiled weaving, carving and crave touching objects in the environment. They like outdoor activities, gestures and regularly engage in sports. This class of children learns through bodily sensations demonstrated through hands-on experience, drama, dance, role-play and performing. 5) Music Smart (Musical / Rhythmic intelligence) This refers to the detection, identification, change and the ability to express music. These students are sensitive to rhythm, pitch, melody or sound. They usually have a good singing voice, and can easily identify whether the right rhythm is used. They can easily listen to music in order to play musical instruments and remember them quickly. This type of child thinks through the rhythm of melody in their studies and learns best through composing, singing, and making up song lyrics. 6) Interpersonal intelligence (Inter-personal intelligence) These learners are aware of and able to differentiate between other people's emotions, intentions, motivation and sensory capabilities. This includes things such as facial expressions, voice and the sensitivity of movement. These use these cues to identify different relationships and quickly to suggest appropriate responses to their subconscious. Some may prefer to participate in organizations based on the nature of sports or games such as basketball, running or video games. When they encounter problems, they are more willing to ask others for assistance and like to teach others how to do something. They feel very comfortable in a crowd, are usually groups leaders. Children in this category rely on the feedback when studying and working. They learn best through negotiation, group work, team activity, debating, sharing and role-play. 7) Intrapersonal (Intra-personal intelligence) This refers to self-knowledge, and the appropriate capacity to act accordingly. These students normally are aware of their inner emotions, intentions, motivations, temperament, and desire. They possess good self-discipline and self-esteem through strong self-awareness of own their strengths and weaknesses. They may retreat to think and consider an ideal learning environment encompassing alone time. Children in this category learn best
