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.

Intrapersonal Intelligence shows in people who:

  • are keenly aware of their moral beliefs
  • have a keen sense of fairness
  • will give 100% as long as they believe in what they are doing
  • learn best when they have an emotional attachment to the subject
  • can be just as productive working alone as working in a group
