Many experts agree that understanding how their minds work can enable people to choose the right course of study and find their dream careers. As psychological research team Bradberry and Greaves concludes, "Only when somebody is aware of their strengths and weaknesses can they maximize their potential."
According to Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University, the traditional notion of intelligence, grounded in IQ testing, is extremely limited. In 1983, Dr. Gardner developed the theory of multiple intelligences to account for people's broad range of learning and career potential.
