There's no question that these three men have high IQs. That has nothing to do with other aspects of intelligence that suggests that they are profoundly impaired in other kinds of intelligence.
" is a theory of intelligence that differentiates it into specific (primarily sensory) "modalities", rather than seeing intelligence as dominated by a single general ability. This model was proposed by Howard Gardner in his 1983 book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences.... Gardner chose eight abilities that he held to meet these criteria: musical--rhythmic, visual--spatial, verbal--linguistic, logical--mathematical, bodily--kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. He later suggested that existential and moral intelligence may also be worthy of inclusion. Although the distinction between intelligences has been set out in great detail, Gardner opposes the idea of labeling learners to a specific intelligence. Each individual possesses a unique blend of all the intelligences. Gardner firmly maintains that his theory of multiple intelligences should "empower learners", not restrict them to one modality of learning."
