    Can The Eight Cognitive Functions be Correlated With the Nine Types of Intelligence?

    Howard Gardner mentioned 9 types of intelligence in his work:

    1. Naturalist Intelligence
    2. Musical Intelligence
    3. Logical-Mathematical Intelligence
    4. Existential Intelligence
    5. Interpersonal Intelligence
    6. Bodily-kinesthetic Intelligence
    7. Linguistic Intelligence
    8. Intra-personal Intelligence
    9. Spatial Intelligence


    I'm wondering if this can be linked to cognitive functions

    My idea so far:
    1. Naturalist Intelligence - Se/Si
    2. Musical Intelligence - Se/Ne
    3. Logical-Mathematical Intelligence - Ti/Te
    4. Existential Intelligence - Ni/Ne
    5. Interpersonal Intelligence - Fe/Fi
    6. Bodily-kinesthetic Intelligence - Se/Te
    7. Linguistic Intelligence - Si/Ti
    8. Intra-personal Intelligence - Fi/Ni
    9. Spatial Intelligence - Te/Si


    I dunno, any thoughts?

    Sure both deal with people and understanding the world, so there will be some overlap.
    However, I doubt it can be resolved as pretty as you just did.
    Trying to make them match for real will probably be a nightmare.
    But, probably doable if one has the time and inclination.
    And probably educational to the casual observer.
    You could read the book on the intelligences and read Jungs thesis on types.
    Then you can write the book about the crossover and enlighten us all.

    Even within 1 type, they have tested as a variety of intelligences. But there is a trend where fewer make the results in certain type groups.

    My list:
    Naturalist Intelligence - ?
    Musical Intelligence - Se/Ni
    Logical-Mathematical Intelligence - T
    Existential Intelligence - N
    Interpersonal Intelligence - Xe
    Bodily-kinesthetic Intelligence - Se
    Linguistic Intelligence - S/N
    Intra-personal Intelligence - Xi
    Spatial Intelligence - Se

    My thoughts:
    If a person is a dominant user of one function and uses it a lot. He/She may develop some specific skills. Especially if person is teen and brain "pruning" is happening. Then it may hard-wire itself to be more efficient at certain stuff, therefore making it more intelligent in that. Anyway there is no actual proof of that, but theoretically it may happen. Also we should take into account, that some of those intelligences have no constant translations to cognitive functions. Why would person be very intelligent in naturalistic stuff? It may be iNtuitiveness or Sensorities, maybe even judgement processes. Due to there being many reasons why one may be smart at something, it would be very hard if not impossible to assign that to cognitive functions. Anyway if you only ask if there is correlation between cognitive functions and 9 intelligences, then I would answer that there may be those, but it would be extremely hard to translate that. So you just can't simply assume something out of that.

    That would be pretty awesome, but you know what people say about ENFPs, if we actually had the ability to concentrate we might become the new rulers of the world :D

    But in all seriousness, this would make a great analysis paper. If I were in Uni I would love to investigate this

    Yes. In fact may throries appear to simply an extension or different spin on cognitive functions, such as the enneagram.

    Hell, even personality disorders can be explained through congnitive functions

    Antisocial personaltiy disorder (sociopathy): Extremely unhealthy Ti-Se, throw in some manipulative Fe for good measure and delusional or absent Ni

    Borderline personality disorder: Extremely unhealthy Fi or Fe

    Narcissistic personality dosorder: Functions irrelevent but are all unhealthy and convince the subject that they are right about everything

    Histrionic personality disorder: Extremely unhealhty Fe

    Paranoid personality disorder: Unhealthy Ne or Ni

    Schizoid personality disorder: Complete overtake of Ti

    Schizotypal personality disorder: That one's just.....weird. Probably some unhealthy Ne or Ni

    Dependant personality disorder: Extremely unhealthy Si-Fe

    Avoidant personality disorder: Inferior Ne or Se becomes overwhelming

    Obsesseive-compulsive personality disorder: Extremely unhealthy Si-Te
