Nonverbal Intelligence

Nonverbal intelligence refers to the ability to manipulate visual information; it describes problem-solving and thinking skills which do not necessitate verbal language comprehension and production. This hands-on reasoning involves abstract or concrete ideas, remembering and recognizing visual sequences, carrying out visual analogies, and understanding causal relationships presented in visual materials. Non-verbal intelligence is manifested in solving puzzles, using diagrams, creating designs, and anticipating outcomes. It is essential in conceptualizing, implementing projects, organizing, mathematical concepts, and common sense. Nonverbal intelligence IQ tests are often used to measure the basic intelligence of individuals who have language and speech difficulties.
