Spatial Intelligence

Spatial Intelligence and Spatial reasoning relate to vision and spatial judgment.

Those with strong visual-spatial intelligence are typically very good at visualizing and mentally manipulating objects.

They have a strong visual memory and are often artistically inclined. Those with visual-spatial intelligence also generally have a very good sense of direction and may also have very good hand-eye coordination, although this is normally seen as a characteristic of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence.

Some critics point out the high correlation between the spatial and mathematical abilities, which seems to disprove the clear separation of the intelligences as Gardner theorizes.

Since solving a mathematical problem involves visually manipulating symbols such as numbers, spatial intelligence is involved. A thorough understanding of the two intelligences precludes this criticism, however, as the two intelligences do not precisely conform to the definitions of visual and mathematical abilities.

Although they may share certain characteristics, they are easily distinguished by several factors, and there are many with strong logical-mathematical intelligence and weak visual-spatial, and vice versa.[citation needed]

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include artists, engineers, and architects.
