Multiple Intelligences – Interpersonal: To think about and understand another person

Solara Speaks – Power Thoughts
Episode 6
Interpersonal: To think about and understand another person.
Special Guest: Bob Wall (“Enter the Dragon”)

MI theory helps us all to appreciate that there is more to being smart than what shows up on an IQ test or “book smarts”.

Welcome back to Solara Speaks: Power Thoughts, inspired by Dr. C. Branton Shearer of the Multiple Intelligences Research and Consulting in Ohio. Dr. Shearer’s theory is based upon the work of Howard Gardner of Harvard University. 

Dr. Shearer describes 8 types of Intelligence. Today, we’ll explore one type called Spatial Smart or what Dr. Shearer refers to as thinking in pictures and perceiving the visual world. And, you have no idea how excited I am to share today’s discussion with our guest. He’s an actor, appearing on TV, in films, and in commercials, he’s a world champion martial artist, a martial arts trainer, and a successful businessman: Bob Wall.

To have empathy and recognize distinctions among people and to appreciate their perspectives with sensitivity to their motives, moods and intentions. It involves interacting effectively with one or more people in familiar, casual or working circumstances.

Social Sensitivity: sensitivity to and understanding of other people’s moods, feelings and point of view
Social Persuasion: ability for influencing other people
Interpersonal Work: interest and skill for jobs involving working with people.

Stay brainy!
