A multispective list of (200+) human intelligences.


By Daniel Montano

You don’t have to read the entire list below, it’s point is simple:
Our human intelligence is an emergence of (thousands / millions?) of “smaller” intelligences.

Our ability to use some of these intelligences will depend on our awareness of these intelligences. They are like tools. Becoming aware that you have thousands of tools is one level of awareness. Learning how to use them is another level.
