Multiple Intelligences

Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences is persuasive to me. This came up the other day in the context of my criticism of Ayn Rand. Part of the reason we need each other and teams are so effective is because no one person is talented in all (or even many) of the types of intelligence.

Absolutely!
One of the key, underlying reasons for different types of intelligence - at least on one continuum - is the varying ratios of non-random to random (i.e. accidental) neural firings.

This will be all fleshed out in Bohn's Theory of Overlapping Intelligences, scheduled for peer review and publishing in about 40 years.
