Based upon extensive studies by researchers on human intelligences known as multiple intelligences, this study involves the quest to further Howard Gardner's research as it applies to faculty members in higher education. This quantitative research study discovered and identified the degree of relationships between the domains of multiple intelligences: (a) interpersonal, (b) intrapersonal, and (c) linguistic intelligences, and (d) leadership and demographic characteristics such as, (a) age, (b) gender and (c) ethnicity among higher education faculty. Using a survey instrument, primary data was collected from a sample of 205 faculty members in the United States. Furthermore, the researchers examined and analyzed certain aspects of the field of leadership, and the impact Gardner's multiple intelligences may or may not have on leadership selection, training and development based on the results obtained. Implications and suggestions for future research are discussed.
