GOAL: To identify and describe a new intelligence derived from observation and experience.
GIVE: Feedback to others on their assignments at the TWB Learning Cafe
Goleman's work on Emotional Intelligence and Gardner's naturalistic, spiritual, and moral intelligences point us towards new discussions and inquiries about intelligences yet unnamed.
1) If you were to think about a capacity you have seen in others - students, friends, community members - or even in yourself, an intelligence that has not yet been identified by Gardner and Goleman, but is present, what name would you give it?
2) Once you've given a name to a previously unnamed intelligence, write a brief 4 - 5 sentence description of it.
3) Give evidence for this intelligence citing at least 1 example.
