The Personal Intelligences--includes interpersonal intelligence relating to the feelings and intentions of others--and intrapersonal intelligence--the ability to understand one's own feelings and motivations. These two intelligences are separate from each other. Nevertheless, because of their close association in most cultures, they are often linked together.


Interpersonal Intelligence shows up in people who:

  • learn best interacting with others
  • dislike working alone
  • are "team players"
  • study well in groups
  • enjoy television and radio talk shows
  • enjoy clubs and extra-curricular activities
  • take an interest in social issues and causes
