“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.”
These wise words are from Mr. Albert Einstein himself, who--while we all recognize now is a genius when it comes to mathematical subjects--had his weak spots. Despite his deplorable French skills and slow speech development, that didn't stop him from having a bright career.
Which brings us to the theory of Multiple Intelligences, first put forth in the 80s by psychologist and Harvard Professor of Neuroscience, Howard Gardner.
Gardner's view—in which he upends the traditional view that you are either all-around intelligent, or you're not—actually says that there are eight different facets of intelligence, and identifying which your child is best at can have a huge influence on how she learns and which career she will eventually succeed in.
