talk about “learning by doing.” This way of knowing happens through
physical movement and through the knowings of our physical body. The
body “knows” many things that are not necessarily known by the
conscious, logical mind, such as how to ride a bike, how to parallel
park a car, dance the waltz, catch a thrown object, maintain balance
while walking, and where the keys are on a computer keyboard.
If you have a strength in this intelligence area you tend to have a keen
sense of body awareness. You like physical movement, dancing, making and
inventing things with your hands, and role-playing. You probably
communicate well through body language and other physical gestures. You
can often perform a task much better after seeing someone else do it
first and then mimicking their actions. You probably like physical games
of all kinds and you like to demonstrate how to do something for someone
else. You may find it difficult to sit still for long periods of time
and are easily bored or distracted if you are not actively involved in
what is going on around you.
