Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence is the inner quality of individual that helps focus on the skills of working with bodily movements and physical objects. This is the basic quality of being a good physique and physical worker. Every individual has unique set of qualities with a certain combination of all nine intelligences. The people with the strong presence of this intelligence are sensitive to body movements and skilful works with objects. They are keen makers of structures and shapes. Persons with strong Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence are good at sports, industrial productions and handicrafts. They are eventually good at doing things rather than listening or seeing.
