(1993) were used as the data collection tool. Data were analyzed using the analysis of Pearson correlation. The findings indicated that there have been found some significant positive and negative correlations between variables. Contribution/Originality: This study contributes to the existing literature by investigating the relationship between high school students' problem solving skills and multiple intelligences.
