    Default Howard Gardner, Existential Intelligence and Socionics

    I don't know if any of you have heard of Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences. He posits that intelligence isn't one unique ability, but, instead, can be broken down into several separate skills: http://www.tecweb.org/styles/gardner.html.

    In any event, he came up with the notion of "existential intelligence" - the ability to ponder deep questions about the universe and human existence; http://thesecondprinciple.com/optima...smic-smarts-2/ http://712educators.about.com/od/mul...telligence.htm. This would be the sort of skill a cosmologist or philosopher would have. Nonetheless, because of the special criteria he gave for making his list of abilities, existential intelligence did not quite make the cut. Regardless, how would you fit this skill into Model A? (Assuming it can be fit.) This is of special interest to me, because this seems to be the type of intelligence I am most adept at, yet very little has been discussed about anything like it, including talk in socionics circles...

    Interconnectivity and holism made me go right to the field functions, and going beyond the senses should rule out Si. So Ti, Ni, and Fi. Going further into minus/plus would lean me towards attaching those fxns to an non-sensate counterpart. -Ti, -Ni, +Ni, and +Fi. Every quadra gets a fxn this way.
