This paper aims to focus and further develop the issue of the potential applicability of Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences for exploring some crucial issues concerning interpreting as well as problems emerging in interpreters' everyday professional life. The paper begins by presenting Gardner's theoretical assumptions referring to human intelligence. Gardner' s conceptual differentiation of intelligence argues that the idea of psychometrics (IQ tests) is too narrow and therefore irrelevant to the wide range of human cognitive abilities. The paper next describes some of the types of intelligence such as linguistic, musical, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, visual-spatial, interpersonal and intrapersonal as well as naturalistic intelligence that fulfill a significant role in conference interpreting. The final part of the paper provides concepts for potential relations existing between interpreting and different types of intelligence.
