    Each of the eight intelligences has
    - the ability to create something effective and valued
    - a set of skills that make it possible to solve problems in life
    - the potential for creating solutions for problems which involves gathering new knowledge.

    Re: Full stop

    The use of end punctuation in bulleted sentences is a matter of style, and can vary greatly.

    The best thing to do is simply be consistent in how you use end punctuation in your lists.

    If any of your bullets will have internal punctuation, to me that is an argument for using end punctuation.

    Again the most important thing is to be consistent; there is no one "right" way.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
