Related to interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence is the cognitive ability to understand and sense the "self." Intrapersonal intelligence allows children to tap into internal feelings and thoughts. A strong intrapersonal intelligence can lead to self-esteem, self-enhancement, and a strength of character that can be used to solve internal problems. On the other hand, a weak intrapersonal intelligence (such as that autistic children) prevents a person from recognizing himself as separate from the surrounding environment. Intrapersonal intelligence often is not recognized from the outside unless it is expressed in some form, such as rage or joy.
