Abstract

Sexual openness is a measure of a person’s agreeableness to sex and sex-related ideas. Intrapersonal Intelligence was proposed by Howard Gardner in his Theory of Multiple Intelligences. This is the awareness of one’s feelings and emotions and knowledge of oneself. Previous research has looked at the correlations between sexual openness with sexual aggression, prejudices, and social-emotional intelligence. Intrapersonal intelligence has been studied in regards to correlations with social and emotional wellbeing, sexual behavior, etc. Research remains limited on the relationship between intrapersonal intelligence and sexual openness. University of Lynchburg students, faculty, and staff over the age of 18 were recruited to participate in this study. Participants completed both the Brief Sexual Attitudes Scale and Multiple Intelligence test in a survey to determine their sexual openness and intrapersonal intelligence. This study also examined other factors that could impact an individual’s sexual openness and intrapersonal intelligence including: religious background, political affiliation, political upbringing, and current religious beliefs. Research in this area is important because it can help us understand how we can build understanding and tolerance of other members of society. This is important for eliminating prejudice and discrimination.
