It depends :-)
If I had to choose, I'd put the Inter/Intra-personal and emotional ones higher than many of the others, but I can think of contexts where Linguistic or Logical-Mathematical might be critical.
While I am working from long time ago with neuroscientists it has no sense to pay attention to something like you stated, is a waste of time. Why? Because the defintion of intelligence itself (at least go for the mostly accepted in the field of neuroscience). Just my opinion based on research and practice which I can justify and demostrate, but just my opinion. In fact, all these stuff iis not proven at all. All about intelligence is mere theory that I am not against of people that consider to take it into account.
I also believe that the inter/Intra-personal and emotional intelligences are the ones I need to "apply" recurrently and in a deeper way while other ones might need to be used according to context.
If you have some interesting/relevant experiences regarding these, please share them.
Thanks for your inputs.
I respect your opinions towards Gardner's theories. Feel free to elaborate a bit more on your point of view :)
Interesting your question
Thanks for sharing
The theory of multiple intelligences, proposed by Howard Gardner in 1983, revolutionized the way we understand intelligence.
He says that there are several types of human intelligence, each representing different forms of information processing.
Multiple intelligences represent different intellectual capacities.
According to Gardner, all people have all eight types of intelligence at different levels of fitness.
Harvard University professor Howard Gardner has earned a spot on the list of the world's 100 most influential intellectuals, collected by Prospect magazine
Thanks for your inputs.
For you, which type of intelligence is the most influential for a PM? Who do you think they affected your projects' results?
Gardner recently released a book that is raging around the world: Five Minds for the Future.
In it, the author develops the theory that to survive in today's world, one must be rigorous and creative at the same time.
The first of the five mental approaches examined by the American teacher is that of the "disciplined mind," the most classic of them, the mind that collects the various information and stimuli received over time and then directs and puts them into practice in a field. particular area of ??activity, exactly the field in which this person distinguishes himself.
The “synthetic mind”, essential in the age of the Internet and the profusion of news channels: those who have this kind of mental impostation collect information, select it and synthesize it in an original way.
The "creative mind" is one that cultivates new ideas and is capable of asking unusual questions and getting unexpected answers.
The sequence continues with two approaches that Gardner defines “not options, but needs” today: the “respectful mind” - the way of thinking of those who accept differences, strive to understand others and collaborate.
Finally, the “ethical mind”, the one that evaluates the needs and desires of global society, seeking to achieve goals that go beyond personal interests.
“I am sure there are other aspects besides these, and it would be important to study them,” explains Howard Gardner, “but these five are the ones that deserve to be emphasized today.”
Stephen Covey proposes that the human being as a whole has 4 intelligences:
First use of the term "emotional intelligence" is generally attributed to Wayne Payne but was popularized by Daniel Goleman
What intelligences will the Triune Brain contain?
1) Reptilian Brain
2) Limbic Brain or Emotional Brain
3) Neocortex Brain
I recently read:
Joseph Jaworski proposes the three types of intelligence: brain, heart and gut
Howard Gardner's proposal on the theory of multiple intelligences:
1. Logical-mathematical intelligence
2. Spatial-visual intelligence
3. Verb Linguistic Intelligence
4. Interpersonal Intelligence
5. Intrapersonal Intelligence
6. Naturalistic Intelligence
7. Body-kinetic intelligence
8. Musical Intelligence
The question you ask is very interesting
I would replace with:
- What types of (dominant) intelligence have the most successful project managers?
I think it depends on the area in which the project is developed
