The cerebral cortex is divided into 4 main sections known as lobes.
The Frontal Lobe (Prefrontal and Postfrontal) is used to make decisions. It is also where our dominant personality is formed.
The Parietal Lobe processes sensory information, such as taste, visual perception and recognition, temperature and touch.
The Temporal Lobe processes auditory information and interprets the sound and language that we hear.
The Occipital Lobe is the main visual processing centre of the brain and processes the information that our eyes are sending.
Our 10 innate intelligences are linked to the functions of the cerebral cortex and the DNAg2 assessment provides a graphical representation highlighting which of your 10 innate intelligences are stronger, and which areas you need to develop further to achieve improved results.
The 10 innate intelligences are:
Managing Skills – planning, organising, coordination, communication
Imaging Skills – visual appreciation, aesthetic sense
In the 1980’s, Dr. Howard Gardner proposed the ‘Theory of Multiple Intelligences’ as a model of intelligence that differentiates intelligence into various modalities rather than viewing it as a single general ability.
The DNAg2 assessment provides a detailed analysis of your 8 multiple intelligences, with a ranking for each and an action plan for development areas.
The 8 multiple intelligences are:
Interpersonal – interaction with others, typically work best by working with others and often enjoy discussion and debate
Intrapersonal – deep understanding of yourself, generally prefer to work independently
Bodily / Kinaesthetic – learn better by involving muscular movement, generally good at physical activities such as sports and dancing. Learn best through physical movement
Mathematical / Logical – reasoning capabilities, recognizing abstract patterns, scientific thinking, investigation and the ability to perform complex calculations
Verbal / Linguistic – ability to learn foreign languages very easily, an aptitude to understand and manipulate syntax and structure
Musical / Rhythmic – able to sing well, play musical instruments and / or compose music. Sometimes use songs or rhythms to learn.
Visual / Spatial – good at visualising and mentally manipulating objects. Strong visual memory and often artistically inclined.
Naturalistic / Environmentalism – nurturing and relating information to natural surroundings.
