Unit 5 Assessment QuestionsQuestion 1One of the theories that I was interested in is the theory of multiple intelligence byHoward Gardner. Gardner suggested that the Multiple intelligence ideas are based on IQ testsand precisely portray an individual's skills. His theory suggested eight different bits ofintelligence based on the skills and abilities valued in various cultures. To capture the wholevariety of skills and talents, Gardner theorizes that people have intellectual capabilities andmultiple kinds of intelligence, including artistic, interpersonal, spatial, and linguistic bits ofintelligence. In his hypothesis, he suggested that many types of intelligence exist. When we thinkof intelligent and unintelligent, most people think of clever people and stupid people. However,Gardner acknowledged that intelligence has different facets and people have strengths andweaknesses.The theory of multiple intelligences by Howard Gardner suggests that people don't cometo birth with all their intellect. This theory called into question the conventional notion of a singlekind of intelligence, often called 'g,' that only focuses on cognitive abilities. Intelligent people aresmart-minded; they possess various skills and intellectual capacity to adapt and solve challengeswhen they encounter them. I can quickly tell someone is intelligent in how they carry themselveswhen in public and private life.Question 2In the first camp, people think that people are primarily irrational and prefer to makewrong decisions in several situations, mainly based on impulses, feelings, or circumstances. Incomparison, the second camp members claim that while humans often make bad decisions, theyare usually very logical. I believe that I am on the second camp, which maintains that even
though human beings make bad decisions, they are very reasonable. The explanation is that themajority of people comprehend and benefit from their errors. Not everybody in life is perfect.
