Abstract
This study aimed to identify the types of multiple intelligences among undergraduate students at Yarmouk University in light of Gardner's theory. To achieve this aim, the Multiple Intelligences Test (MIT) prepared by Onoz (2009) was administered on a study sample consisting of (759) students at Yarmouk University in Jordan. The results of the study showed that the linguistic intelligence ranked first, while the spatial intelligence came last, and that there were no statistically significant differences on the intrapersonal intelligence, while there were statistically significant differences on the rest of the intelligences attributed to the gender variable. Results also showed that there were no statistically significant differences on the intrapersonal intelligence while there were statistically significant differences attributed to the faculty variable in favor of students of scientific faculties in the logical, spatial, and the naturalist intelligences and in favor of students in humanity faculties in the rest of intelligences. The study also found out that there were no statistically significant differences on all intelligences attributed to the study level variable, except for the linguistic, logical, and spatial intelligences in favor of third and fourth year's students. The study concluded with suggesting many recommendations the most important of which is that faculty of universities should pay more attention to multiple intelligences of students.
