Tetapi kalau teman-teman Anda sering bilang Anda pandai bicara, atau pandai membaca peta, atau jago main sepakbola, atau petikan gitar Anda membuat orang terpesona, atau pintar bergaul, atau peka akan emosi diri sendiri, Anda layak ...more

Utilizing Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences as a framework, Armstrong argues that there is biological evidence to support at least seven categories of intelligence, but that western society has over-focused on only two of these— mathematical skills and linguistic skills. Armstrong goes on to argue that, if all seven intelligences are considered, everyone has areas in which they are naturally gifted (“intelligent”) and everyone has areas that are natural weaknesses:“One of the gre ...more
This book may be a bit dated, but the information and suggestions are nonetheless relevant. Lots has been written on the topic. The point is, God created each of us uniquely and with different kinds of gifts. Across the cultures, different kinds of smarts emerge that wouldn't be valued by another culture. If you're not nature smart and know about snow, you'll die in the arctic. Our culture tends to value word smarts above all others, and measure intelligence by false sets of exercises.

I liked that this book inspired me to consider my strengths & weaknesses (and consider what to do with them). I really enjoyed the checklists and suggestions for how to develop each type of intelligence. The book was very easy to read & I learned a bit.

This is an excellent introduction to and discussion of the concept of multiple intelligences (MI). It includes some very good guide tests to help identify one's strengths and weaknesses in different intelligences. However, the book seems a bit outdated with its old examples and resources; for instance, the Internet is always discussed as "hypertext" as the book was written in the early nineties. An overhaul of resources, at the very least, is a must.
I'm reading this book, working through it sporadically, and really liking its premise. Also ties in with education and figuring out how best to work with your inner talents, and develop those you want more of, or deal with deficiencies, minimizing their impact on your life.
A great book for parents, managers, anyone who wants to better understand how they and others learn and process information and how you can capitalize on the different kinds of smarts -- in yourself and in a group or family dynamic.

Very, very interesting book about the different ways people are smart. Maybe not everyone is "book smart", but there are more ways of being smart that are just as important. Love this book.
I found it quite interesting, it showed what is obvious but ignored that there is not one way to be smart and it is not helpful to limit peoples capacity to learn and explore there strenghts
I really enjoyed the description of multiple intelligence theory and its practical application in daily life. It is written for the laity, but I presents some research and analysis.

kecerdasan majemuk yg anda miliki perlu di aktifasi. thomas amstrong menjelaskan bagaimana kecerdasan yg anda miliki dapat digali dengan optimal
This is one of those books I have been reading over and over again to learn how I can improve the kinds of "smart" I don't have.
This book is so cool cause you can see which kind of smart you are, and how to improve the kinds of smart that you aren't.
This book clearly explains learning differences and how to improve our capacity for learning.
Interesting way to review intelligence. It made me feel a little less dumb.

You always knew you were smart you just didn't know why or how. Here it is.
Extremely informative. Great way to work on underdeveloped areas of smart.
An interesting new way to look at yourself and those around you.
