Is Albert Einstein more intelligent than Mother Teresa of Calcutta? What do they have in common personalities as diverse as Houdini, Bruce Lee or Michael Jackson? Are there different ways of being smart? In the end, what does being intelligent means?
In this deck of cards on Multiple Intelligences we introduce 40 personalities from the world of science, art and world history that offer a rich variety of examples of what it means to be intelligent and will enrich your understanding and appreciation of intelligence.
We usually associate intelligence to the development of mathematical-logic skills of individuals, embodied in the figure of physicist Albert Einstein, as a paradigm of intelligence. The purpose of this card game on types of intelligence is to offer students at all levels many other examples and ways of being intelligent beyond the intellectual-scientific model, which, however, is also included.
Following the theory about the types of intelligence by american psychologist Howard Gardner, we show examples of what is meant by logical, visual, interpersonal, intrapersonal, kinesthetic, naturalist, musical and linguistic intelligence. A total of 40 figures universally recognized of all ages, cultures, races, genders, nationalities and professions form a much wider mosaic on what being inteligent means, in which concepts such as empathy, perception, introspection and sensitivity in all its meanings are included.
These cards are clear and simple on purpose, so that its didactic application is as wide as possible, and so that can be used by students of various ages and levels to quickly get to know each of the proposed models.
For more basic levels the aim of the game could be to collect five cards of the same color (or type of intelligence). Thus with 40 cards up to 8 players can play. For more advanced levels it becomes important the exchange of information about each figure, its sentences or the dates of birth and death and correlate this data correctly
There is no single way to play with this deck, whose cards can be arranged in various ways (depending on the type of intelligence, or the chronological order), can be used as a starting point for further information or to discuss or reflect about the phrase that accompanies each image, which is particularly representative of their point of view.
Note that this deck is designed more as a teaching tool than as a board game itself with its unique rules, so it is open to as many uses as you can imagine
