English [Auto] Back in this video outlet to talk with you about the different types of intelligence and what we don't do this we're going to cover eight different types of intelligence here in this video. Now first of all you probably know people for instance that can pick up languages very quickly. You probably also know people that have a very logical view on the world and have you ever wondered are they the same people or do they have the same kind of intelligence and from the scientific perspective. No they do not. They have different parts of the brain being extremely developed. So for instance people who are very good at speaking languages and can pick up languages very quickly. It is easier for them because they have a part of the brain which is more developed than for people that don't have this ability. The same thing applies to people who are very analytical who have a very logical understanding of the world. They have a different part of the brain highly developed than other people. So is there the same intelligence or other different kinds of intelligence. Well there are basically two definitions and I want to stick with the second one. First of all talk with you about the first one. Now the first kind of definition is basically that everyone has the same intelligence but the different parts of the brain are developed and that basically means right for instance in IQ test you have a very high score in analytical thinking or you have a very high score in speaking or something like that. But I think this kind of test is actually quite wrong and we've seen that over time we have seen that IQ tests don't really reflect intelligence. So what the scientific community has come up with is just simply different types of intelligence and based on these different kinds of intelligence they developed further tests for instance. And this is now intelligence number one that is the so-called linguistic intelligence that basically means people who can pick up languages very quickly. For instance a very high linguistic intelligence so you probably know these people you probably know people who for instance drove with you to a different country and they seem to pick up words so quickly and you're like How was that. I can't remember anymore. And many people think that I'm such a person but to be honest no definitely not. I don't think that I have a high linguistic intelligence but I think many of you out there will have a very high linguistic intelligence which basically represents just a very let's say logical approach to language learning. They know exactly how to learn a certain language they know how to pick it up and they have the ability to use language in an effective way. Now the second type of intelligence that I would like to cover with you is logical and or mathematical type of intelligence. So for instance you're taking a very highly logical approach to problem solving. And I think we all know the math geniuses in our high school classes or perhaps in university and we just simply cannot comprehend how they can solve certain problems so quickly and to be honest I study mathematics. I'm probably one of these geeks but I understand that for many people it's quite difficult to grasp how other people can have such a logical approach on the world. And for instance for me even in my math classes I'm not the best. There are other people in my math classes who are just brilliant who just get the problems and they know how to solve them. So if you know these kind of people you can be quite certain that they have a quite high mathematical and or logical intelligence quotient. So then number three number three is now the visual spatial kind of intelligence. So they're thinking more creatively than other people. So for instance they think more creatively in regard to color design and space. And I think we all again know these people who have we just simply have a sense for beauty. You know exactly how things have to look like for instance. That's for me almost impossible. I have no sense for this kind of beauty at all. And for instance when I'm taking photos people are like how can you take such photos. They look terrible because I have a very low and video's less slushed spatial intelligence and I think many of you out there who for instance know how to dress nice. We have let's say some kind of creative ability. You probably have a very high visual slash spatial intelligence. I know that many people especially in the 21st century have a very high visual and spatial intelligence because this is one of the same types of intelligence that got evolved over the last couple of hundred years that got really popular now in the 21st century where more and more our world becomes visual so then type number four. Tandem four is the Bodleian slash physical type of intelligence so making things or solving things physically. Now for instance when you go into IQ tests you have to solve things that actually you probably do not really know how to solve. Sometimes in IQ test you have to for instance you have certain parts you have like little diagrams or something like that you have you know permits is something that you have to put together in order to create one big something. And in the IQ test then this counts for instance for bodily and physical intelligence or at least the type of your or the part of your intelligence that is for this kind of behavior. So what basically we are doing right now is we are saying all right this is not just a part of our intelligence. This actually is in intelligence something completely different. So bodily and physical intelligence is something that many people possess but most people do not even know that they possess them because most of the time our education is not really focused on making things on really making things with our hands and most of the time based on reading it's most of the time based on writing or for instance remembering things but not really based on doing things with our hands. So then that's cover type number five which is the musical kind of intelligence so playing in understanding music is easily. For instance Mozart or Beethoven these prodigies actually were four years old or something like that and were able for instance to play beautiful pieces of pot or other other amazing pianists. So they were very young. And at that time they already had the ability to play these incredibly incredibly difficult pieces of music. So basically these people often have a very high musical intelligence. They know how to play music. And for them it is easy to understand and learn different kinds of musical pieces so then try number six which is the interpersonal social slash emotional kind of intelligence. So for instance people have a very high IQ might have a very high intelligence quotient in the sense of interpersonal social and emotional intelligence so that they understand other people and they understand their emotions and their actions. So people who understand are people's emotions and their actions often have a very high interpersonal slash social slash emotional kind of intelligence. Now again in the last couple of years let's a couple of hundred years this is something that really gets developed because when we look at human evolution we will see that from very early on you know people live together. But right now we're living in mega cities millions and millions of people and it seems like that the e q in like on average is actually increasing the IQ IQ. When we look at it from the traditional sense is decreasing in the Western world at least in the EU is increasing. So then type number 7 which is then the interpersonal the so-called inner intelligence. So being for instance self aware and understanding oneself not self awareness is probably one of the most under-rated skills I think in the world because we didn't really pay attention to it. Now for a long time it gets something a bit more popular in the last couple of years because for instance great personalities big personalities. They talked about self-awareness becoming more self-aware. Now people who are self-aware have a special ability they can look at themselves even though it's impossible. You know you cannot just go out of your body and look at yourself. But they know how they look like to others. And there's also a kind of intelligence. And now let's cover the last type of intelligence which is the environmental slash naturalist kind of intelligence. And that's the only intelligence that I personally and again this is my personal opinion. I don't really agree with. I don't think this is the kind of intelligence but the scientific community most of the time says or the majority of the scientific community says that there is some kind of environmental slash naturalist kind of intelligence. Now I think that whereas it is very important to protect the environment but I don't think it's really a type of intelligence. But it says or at least the scientific definition of as of it is that the kind of intelligence based on emotional environmental and naturalistic things is all about being active and or concerned about environmental protection. So basically that you don't just care about people but rather care about something that doesn't really have life interferences about plants about rocks about the entire ecosystem. This is also some kind of intelligence. So these went out the eight types of intelligence. Thank you so so much for watching and we'll see each other in the next video.
