My thanks to all who have supported this effort over the years – what a long and strange journey it has been! It has been my privilege to be guided by and learn from many incredible people, including my 35 year “Pen Pal” Howard Gardner from the beginning in 1987. Your voice has always been there.

Thanks, Branton Shearer

Recognized as the Gold Standard for Multiple Intelligences Assessment
Multiple Intelligences

Dr. Howard Gardner has identified eight distinct forms of intelligence that we all possess in varying degrees of skill and ability.


An important key to life success and happiness is understanding your unique MI profile of abilities. The MIDAS is the gold standard in MI assessment for people of all ages.


Understanding the neural architectures of the multiple intelligences is providing deep insights into how our cognitive "tools" are best used in life and in education.


MI and The MIDAS are being used in schools, classrooms, and on the job for people of all ages. Parents can use MIDAS-KIDS to better understand their children. Teachers can obtain profiles for entire classes and individuals. Career planning is enhanced with a MIDAS Profile.
