Human Relations and Development

All human beings have their own intelligence, which differ in different areas. A human being has the capacity to become intelligent through learning and observing, using the necessary instruments and making effective use these instruments (Perkins, 1995). The seven components of traditional intelligence are bodily kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, linguistic, logical-mathematical, musical and spatial (Gardner, 2003).

A person is able to have a sensible skill to achieve in each of the seven areas. A human being has various levels to perform in these intelligence components and has dedicated more energy to developing some of their potential than others (Moursund 1996). I believe my mental attitude aptitude is logical-mathematical intelligence. While solving an arithmetic question one has to know when to divide two numbers and the answer accomplished by dividing these two numbers. This is the concept of division. This process can be done mentally, using pencil and paper or using a calculator. A person is able to learn different concepts and procedures. Moreover, they gain speed and perfect the art of carrying out the process. This has made people come up with technological tools like calculators and computers that assist them in carrying out some procedures, calculations and solving equations.

Evidence to show that a person has logical-mathematical intelligence is that they are good at reasoning, recognizing patterns and logically analyze the problems. A person who tends to think conceptually about figures, relationships and patterns is mathematically intelligent. Such a person is excellent at problem solving, enjoys thing about figurative ideas, they are fond of performing scientific research and they are good at solving difficult arithmetic. People with this intelligence are mostly scientists, mathematicians, computer programmers, engineers and accountants. Such a person can easily perform mathematical calculations and they like solving mathematical problems. They enjoy scientific experiments and their minds work like computers. Some people are able to learn just about anything using logical skills. Further, they are able to calculate and work out relationships and connections between items. Such people enjoy mental challenges, strategic games, seeking solutions to logical, abstract and mathematical problems skills.
