Multiple intelligences among secondary level school students Kailali, Nepal with reference to ethnicity
Intelligence is a characteristic of individual differences held to be one of the sources of human behaviour. Performance of the individual as a person, citizen, as worker and as a student largely depends upon the intelligence he/she possesses. An intelligent person has the ability to adjust himself to the changing circumstances with ease, efficiency and speed. This study aimed to identify the types of multiple intelligences among secondary level students with reference to ethnic differences from Kailali, Nepal in light of Gardner's theory. To achieve this aim, the Multiple Intelligences Test (MIT) was administered on a study sample consisting of 300 students from four (two public and two private) schools. The results of the study showed that the naturalistic intelligence ranked first, while the linguistic intelligence came last, and that there were statistically significant differences on the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence and spatial-visual intelligence, while there were not statistically significant differences on the rest of the intelligences attributed to the school types(public and private). The study concluded with suggesting many recommendations.
