The present study aimed to investigate the differential effect of selected demographic factors on multiple intelligences of pre-service physical science teachers. The Multiple Intelligence Scale for Secondary School Teachers, developed by the investigators, was administered along with a personal data sheet on a sample of 482 pre-service physical science teachers, selected on a stratified random basis, from three districts of Tamil Nadu. The data, thus collected, were subjected to statistical analysis (t-test and One-way ANOVA) by keeping the objectives and hypotheses in mind. The study revealed a differential effect of gender on verbal-linguistic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, bodily kinaesthetic intelligence, musical intelligence, and interpersonal intelligence. Significant differential effect of residential locale of the participants was observed on verbal-linguistic intelligence, musical intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and naturalistic intelligence. While educational qualification was found to have significant differential effect on logical-mathematical intelligence, socio-economic status was found to have effect on interpersonal intelligence and moral-spiritual intelligence. The study further exposed the presence of significant difference among high-, average-, and low achievers in their verbal-linguistic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, visual-spatial intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and naturalistic intelligence.
