Existential Intelligence

According to Howard Gardner, the basic human intelligence can be classified into 9 types. Some of them are musical intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, spatial intelligence. In this particular blog, we are discussing about existential intelligence which I personally feel very interesting.

There is no denying the fact that humans are intelligent beings, there might be extraterrestrial intelligence that we might not know of which can be far more intelligent than us but lets not go into that right now. Existential Intelligence basically refers to the sensitivity and capacity to tackle deep questions about human existence. Questions such as the meaning of life,why do we die,how did we get here. This type of intelligence may be the reason why we have been able to at least have a small hint of our purpose in this universe. The individuals that I mention in my next few blogs may be driven by this intelligence. Who knows.

“I took a test in Existentialism. I left all the answers blank and got 100.” 
― Woody Allen
