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.
