Logical-Mathematical Intelligence has to do with
logic, abstractions, inductive and deductive reasoning, and numbers.
Rather than those possessing high degrees of logical-mathematical
intelligence naturally exceling in mathematics, chess, computer
programming, and other logical or numerical activities, their intelligence
is more directed at:
- traditional mathematical ability
- reasoning capabilities
- abstract pattern recognition
- scientific thinking and investigation
- ability to perform complex calculations.
Many claims have been made that logical ability is often more strongly
correlated with verbal rather than mathematical ability. One possibility
is that formal, symbolic logic, and strict logic games are under
the command of mathematical intelligence, while skills such as fallacy
hunting, argument construction, etc. are under the command of verbal
Careers which suit those with this intelligence include scientists,
mathematicians, doctors, and economists.
