Till recently, it was believed that each person has a certain level of intelligence measured by IQ or Intelligence Quotient. Those who believe in one kind of intelligence think that all intelligence comes from a single factor. They back up this idea with the fact that there is a high positive correlation between intelligence quotient (IQ) and the ability to complete simple cognitive tasks and between reaction time and intelligence.
But according to the latest discoveries, each person has a unique mix of ten different Intelligences, with different proportions of each such Intelligence. So each person carries a unique Multiple Intelligence Code or MIC.
We at MIC examine, test, analyse, reveal and underline the hidden potentials of each person brought under MIC testing. It not only prepares the Brain DNA Mapping, but also creates the future blueprint of potential and talents of such a person. The Findings have a special section which deals with all the weaknesses. The technical report professionally traces maladies and spells out apt remedies. MIC is specially geared to assist the children to get the best in them by leading them to their desired goals.
Originally, this model was proposed by Howard Gardner in his 1983 book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Gardner articulated seven criteria for a behavior to be considered an intelligence. These were that the intelligences showed: potential for brain isolation by brain damage, place in evolutionary history, presence of core operations, susceptibility to encoding (symbolic expression), a distinct developmental progression, the existence of savants, prodigies and other exceptional people, and support from experimental psychology and psychometric findings.
Gardner chose eight abilities that he held to meet these criteria: musical–rhythmic, visual–spatial, verbal–linguistic, logical–mathematical, bodily–kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. He later suggested that existential and moral intelligence may also be worthy of inclusion. Although the distinction between intelligences has been set out in great detail, Gardner opposes the idea of labeling learners to a specific intelligence. Each individual possesses a unique blend of all the intelligences. Gardner firmly maintains that his theory of multiple intelligences should "empower learners", not restrict them to one modality of learning.
Gardner argues intelligence is categorized into three primary or overarching categories, those of which are formulated by the abilities. According to Gardner, intelligence is: 1) The ability to create an effective product or offer a service that is valued in a culture, 2) a set of skills that make it possible for a person to solve problems in life, and 3) the potential for finding or creating solutions for problems, which involves gathering new knowledge.
