A scale of Multiple Intelligences developed by the researchers was applied on (320) students. Mean, standard deviation and MANOVA test were used for statistical analysis. The results of the study show that males and females rank their self-first in intrapersonal intelligences and last in musical intelligences. The results also show that there are statistically significant differences only in Spatial intelligence and Intrapersonal intelligence in favor of females for both intelligences.
