Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test

Over on Michelle's blog, there was a link to take an Intelligence Test. I scanned through her results, and immediately thought, "I'm going to be a Logical person." I have enough Vulcan in me to know what my test results were gonna be. (Here's the part where I should brag about all my scores being "higher than my peers" in all categories, but that would be letting my Type A Personality show too much...) Instead, I will give you the website's linky code, so you can go take the intelligence test yourself.

And contrary to some peoples' beliefs, I actually have some intelligence. At least, according to the test, I do....

What this test didn't come right out and say, though, is that I'm hopelessly, completely, and always will be a geek. I can't even hide it from an online test. I'm doomed.

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...


"This area has to do with logic, abstractions, inductive and deductive reasoning, and numbers. While it is often assumed that those with this intelligence naturally excel in mathematics, chess, computer programming, and other logical or numerical activities, a more accurate definition places emphasis less on traditional mathematical ability and more reasoning capabilities, abstract pattern recognition, scientific thinking and investigation, and the ability to perform complex calculations.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include scientists, mathematicians, engineers, doctors and economists." (Wikipedia)

This one's hard! "Would you rather: Plant a garden? Teach yourself to play a song on guitar?"

How can I decide between those?!

I know!!! Some of those questions were SO hard to choose between.

If I'd looked at the list of intelligences before I started the test, I would have known what I'd end up with as well. Still interesting, even if it did confirm what we already knew :)
