The aim of our study is to examine the predictive levels between pre-service teachers' intelligence domains and Biophilia levels in the theory of multiple intelligences. A quantitative approach has been adopted in the study and the model of the research is the relational screening model. The study group of this research consists of 574 (390 female, 184 male) pre-service teachers. The sampling method of our research is the convenient sampling method. The data collection tools of the research were “The Scale for Determining the Levels of Biophilia for Pre-service Teachers” developed by Sefali and Ozay Kose (2022) and the “Multiple Intelligence Inventory” developed by Ozden (2003). The study determined that Biophilia Levels 1, 2, and 4 are significant predictors of verbal intelligence domain. It was determined that Biophilia Level 1 and Biophilia Level 3 are significant predictors of Logical intelligence. It was determined that Biophilia Level 1 and Biophilia Level 4 are significant predictors of the visual intelligence domain. Biophilia Level 1 is a positive significant predictor of the musical intelligence domain; Biophilia Level 3 is a negative considerable predictor of ID. In addition, it was determined that Biophilia Level 2 has approximate significance in predicting ID. Biophilia Level 1 and Biophilia Level 2 were determined as significant predictors of the bodily intelligence domain. Only Biophilia Level 2 was determined as a significant predictor of the social intelligence domain. Biophilia Level 1 and Biophilia Level 2 were determined as significant predictors of the intrinsic intelligence domain. Biophilia Level 1, Biophilia Level 2, and Biophilia Level 3 were determined as significant predictors of the nature intelligence domain. Based on the findings obtained in our study, it can be said that different levels of Biophilia are predicted according to intelligence domains.
