          The purposes of this study were to investigate the effect of the developed intrapersonal training application by comparing the different score of Intrapersonal Intelligence between pre-and-posttest within experimental groups between groups on gender and general intelligence, by comparing the response accuracy score and response time on intrapersonal intelligence test, before and after using training application. The eighty primary students were recruited and divided into four groups. The study was a Factorial design. The instrument consisted of 1) the intrapersonal training application, 2) the paper-pencil Intrapersonal intelligence and computerized Intrapersonal intelligence test, Data were analyzed using mean, standard deviation, t-test and two-way ANOVA.

         The results demonstrated that results of using the intrapersonal training application being measured from a paper-and-pencil and computerized intrapersonal intelligence tests found that intelligence scores after the experiment were higher than before the experiment (p<.01). There were significantly differences between gender on the interpersonal intelligence score (paper-and-pencil based test) and between high and low general intelligence on the interpersonal intelligence score (computerized based test). There was an interaction effect between sex and general intelligence on the interpersonal intelligence score for both paper-and-pencil and computerized based tests

         In conclusion, the intrapersonal training application could enhance the intrapersonal intelligence of primary school students.
