Another way to present the 9 types of intelligence as exemplified by my How Do We Measure Intelligence post.
The basic idea is that different people are good at different things. These 9 probably don’t cover the wide range of smarts we all possess, but it’s a start.
As Albert Einstein said, ”Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

A month ago, the National Institutes of Health was the single largest source of research funding for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, in the world.
Now, it’s a bunch of people dumping buckets full of ice water over their heads.
The ALS Association said Friday it has received more than $100 million in donations from people around the world in the last 30 days thanks to the ultra-viral Ice Bucket Challenge. The organization received $2.8 million during the same period last year. That’s a whopping 3,500 percent increase.
Annual federal funding for ALS has decreased steadily in the last few years, from $59 million in 2010 to $40 million today. The decline is thanks to the Budget Control Act of 2011, which was passed to protect the U.S. from default. The legislation delivered across-the-board budget cuts of about 5 percent in various federal agencies, including the NIH and its National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke program.
About 5,600 people are diagnosed with ALS in the United States each year. Most die within two to five years.
