Gardner, who first published his book, Frames of Mind,
in 1983, was one of the keynote speakers at the National
Association for Gifted Children - NAGC's 2009 Annual Convention.
The title of his presentation was "Multiple Intelligences:
The First 25 Years."
Gardner's "Multiple Intelligences"
challenged the traditional view of intelligence as an attribute
that can be measured by short-answer tests and represented
by a point on a bell curve. Rather than regarding intelligence
as a single competence, Gardner identified seven capabilities;
linguistic, logical-mathematical, musical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic,
interpersonal, and intrapersonal. In more recent writings,
he has added two more intelligences: naturalist and existential.
