This brief video describes intrapersonal personal intelligence, or Self Smart, one of the eight intelligences in Dr.. Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences. Dr. Gardner has suggested that this may be the most important of all of the intelligences in his model, because so much in life depends upon being able to set goals, have self-confidence, know one’s strengths and limitations, and other features of Self Smart.
