There is no empirical evidence for Gardner's intelligences theory, there is no support from experimental psychology. Intelligence tests support the theory of general intelligence rather than multiple intelligences. The theory has been criticized by mainstream psychology for its lack of empirical evidence, and its dependence on subjective judgement. This refers that abilities and skills are being inaccurately equated with an intelligence in this theory. For example, this may imply that music or kinesthetic abilities are not an intelligence but perhaps just a skill.
