Abstract

The present study investigated the relationship between Procedural Memory as assessed by Reaction Time and Kinesthetic intelligence. In addition, the research investigated if there are gender differences regarding these two variables. A total of 33 participants were recruited for the study through snowball sampling technique from social media. Participants were asked to complete the Multiple Intelligence Profiling Questionnaire VII and the Alternating Serial Reaction Time task on Inquisit Web. The results indicated a moderate negative correlation between reaction time and kinesthetic intelligence. The results of the Mann-Whitney U test indicate no significant difference between females and males in reaction time and kinesthetic intelligence. This may have implication in sports and physical rehabilitation and narrow the literature gap regarding kinesthetic intelligence.
