Abstract
The theory of multiple intelligences, introduced by Harvard developmental psychologist Howard Gardner in 1983, proposes that human intelligence can be categorized into distinct modalities. These modalities include visual-spatial, verbal-linguistic, musical-rhythmic, logical-mathematical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalistic, and bodily-kinesthetic intelligences. Unlike traditional notions of a singular intelligence quotient (IQ), the theory of multiple intelligences recognizes that individuals possess diverse ways of learning. In the present study an attempt is made to assess the multiple intelligence of the students studying in secondary schools and influence of demographic variables on MI. A total of 1697 students were randomlty selected from the Mysuru district selected using simple random sampling.. They were administered Multiple Intelligences Scale (MIS) is a tool developed by SurabhiAgarwal and Suraksha Pal (2017). The data were subjected to chi-square tests and results revealed that majority of the sample size has average levels of intelligence in all of the dimensions (Linguistic, Logical, Spatial, Naturalistic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal). Comparatively, interpersonal multiple intelligence was highest and Intrapersonal multiple intelligence was the least.Female secondary students had the highest levels of multiple intelligence.Age and family type of secondary students did not have significant influence in multiple intelligence. Students from urban area had higher levels of multiple intelligence than students from rural area.
