The Essay is written by Howard Gardner and he introduces his topic on the extensive knowledge he presided over on the topic of psychology. He stated that he is a researcher in the field for several decades in the intro and is trying to get into the idea of how people should be using their minds. Gardner first starts to address the five “dramatis personae” which is the type of minds that everyone has. The five minds would be the disciplined mind, the synthesizing mind, the creating mind, the respectful mind, and the ethical mind. The disciplined mind is basically exposing the mind over and over to address one’s profession or discipline. The synthesizing mind just takes in the information and sorts it out. As for the creating mind, would address ideas or topics that you are unfamiliar with. The respectful mind takes in account for others as well as their general knowledge. The ethical mind works in hand with a person’s morals. Gardner further explains these five “dramatis personae” with his experiences and explains how it tied in with his life.
