Please read the article in attach file about MI Theory to find an article that describes each intelligence, and also provides a refutation to the entire theory. Then write a one page, single-spaced essay in which you identify and explain your intelligence and then state the reasons that you agree or disagree with Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences.
