Another time wasting test, but fun . . .

Your result for Howard Gardner’s Eight Types of Intelligence Test


18% Logical, 6% Spatial, 90% Linguistic, 27% Intrapersonal, 25% Interpersonal, 8% Musical, 10% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 61% Naturalistic!


“Verbal-linguistic intelligence has to do with words, spoken or written. People with verbal-linguistic intelligence display a facility with words and languages. They are typically good at reading, writing, telling stories and memorizing words and dates. They tend to learn best by reading, taking notes, listening to lectures, and via discussion and debate. They are also frequently skilled at explaining, teaching and oration or persuasive speaking. Those with verbal-linguistic intelligence learn foreign languages very easily as they have high verbal memory and recall, and an ability to understand and manipulate syntax and structure.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include writers, lawyers, philosophers, journalists, politicians and teachers.” (Wikipedia)

Hmm, not surprising that Linguistic is highest, but Naturalistic was a suprise, and I would have thought I would score higher on Spatial and Logical. Part of the variation probably has to do with the options presented. I may not want to run a mile, but I might enjoy kayaking for an afternoon. I’m not even sure what “Naturalistic” means. . . .  This tests your preferred ways of approaching things, not how strong you are in any particular area, I think.
