Intrapersonal Intelligence refers to having a deep understanding of the self, what ones strengths and weaknesses are, what makes one unique, being able to predict and control one's own reactions and emotions. In other words, intrapersonal intelligence displays the ability of an individual to reflect and evaluate his/her feelings.

Increasing intrapersonal intelligence, or knowledge of yourself, can have a positive effect on virtually every area of your life, including relationships with others, career, and physical and mental health. Whether your goal is to improve the quality of your life through intrapersonal intelligence, or just feel more comfortable in your own self, there are steps you can take towards increasing your self-awareness and understanding the motivations behind your own thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

  • Keep a journal or a scrapbook and encourage your children to do the same. Ask them to note down their thoughts, ideas, dreams, future plans, etc. or simply how their day went – what made them happy or sad and why?
  • Spend some time alone or you can also spend time meditating. For this purpose you can create a special place in your home where you and your family can spend time in introspection.
  • Walking or jogging is another great activity you can do alone that will not only keep you fit but also gives you time for yourself.
  • You can read biographies of famous personalities. Have discussions with your children about them. ‘What makes them special?’ or ‘How did they follow their dreams?’ are questions you can answer for them
  • Cultural, religious and national events that helps build a strong sense of identify and belongingness.
  • Spend time talking to your children about their favourite colour, shape, car, sports, celebrity, etc. Ask them what they want to become when they grow up and why. Tell them about what you wanted to become when you were a child.  

Lastly, teach your children to be honest with themselves about their feelings and opinions. This can help them connect the choices they make to their true motivations, which is ultimately the most valuable part of intrapersonal intelligence.
