Thomas Armstrong adapted Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligence so that it can be understood even by a child.
Its essence is that intelligence is not just a combination of good memory with academic knowledge. There are several types of intelligence that can be combined in varying degrees in one person: verbal, musical, logical, imaginative, bodily, social, internal, natural and philosophical.
Thomas Armstrong also tells stories about great people who, despite their problems, have become outstanding in their field.
For example, Agatha Christie had problems with grammar and spelling, but this did not prevent her from becoming one of the most famous writers.
