The present study was conducted with the aim of assessing the multiple intelligence of higher secondary students with respect to gender. The investigator randomly selected forty XI standard students of a higher secondary school of Palakkad District of Kerala. Multiple Intelligence Scale was developed by the investigator. The data was analyzed using mean, standard deviation and ‘t-test’. The major findings of the study reveal that there is significant difference between boys and girls with respect to multiple intelligence and its dimensions. Everyone should discover their innate potential and enrich their skills. Teachers need to concede full freedom to students to use their strengths and also develop other intelligences. The theory of multiple intelligences was proposed by Howard Gardner at Harvard University in 1983 to analyze and describe the concept of intelligence in a more comprehensive way. Thus the verbal linguistic and Logical mathematical intelligence mean score were higher. The proportion of Musical intelligence and the bodily kinesthetic intelligence were lesser.
