Long times ago, in an unrelated online discussion, I was introduced to the concept that man does not have one type of intelligence, but have many. Those different type of intelligence enable a person to pick up different type of skills. Hence, there is one intelligence for IQ, one for EQ, one for ability to pick up motor skills and so on.
It has been a long time since the discussion, and I have no idea where to track down that thread (on another site). Can anyone enlighten me on this subject?
