Monday Madness: My Intellegence Type

I found this test from Laura at That Grrl sometime last year and thought it was rather interesting so I took it but I’m only posting the results now because there have been so many occasions to do memes for!

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


8% Logical, 4% Spatial, 29% Linguistic, 37% Intrapersonal, 35% Interpersonal,
45% Musical, 37% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 33% Naturalistic!


“This area has to do with rhythm, music, and hearing. Those who have a high level of musical-rhythmic intelligence display greater sensitivity to sounds, rhythms, tones and music. They normally have good pitch and may even have absolute pitch, and are able to sing, play musical instruments, and compose music. Since there is a strong auditory component to this intelligence, those who are strongest in it may learn best via lecture. In addition, they will often use songs or rhythms to learn and memorize information, and may work best with music playing in the background.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include instrumentalists, singers, conductors, disc-jockeys, and composers.” (Wikipedia)

I’m glad to see that I could have realised my dream of being a singer, its just too bad that I never pursued it. I’m sure I could still do some sort of singing when I have my own ‘neighbourhood’ established though I’m not sure why I’m even bothering to wait for that.

I certainly don’t learn best via lectures though. I learn better by learning how to do things myself, which makes me quite a horrible student really – I guess I can blame the 29% linguistic side of me for this. It was a fun quiz anyway, and I’m happy with my result.

What’s your Intellegence Type?

  1. 57% Logical, 10% Spatial, 18% Linguistic, 8% Intrapersonal, 33% Interpersonal, 47% Musical, 18% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 37% Naturalistic!

    I’m definitely a mix of logical and musical which is kinda weird cause they’re so different!

  2. @AmeriGlide: Wow! That’s quite a combo 🙂 I was disappointed that logic doesn’t help me learn but I can’t really argue with it because then I wouldn’t understand (because if it makes sense then I don’t learn… get it?). LOL

    @Penny: hehe of course! You’re a writer!! Being a philosopher would be so cool. Do they make a lot of money? I mean I know you can win the Nobel prize which is worth a lot of money but its also really competitive right? hehe The American Idol auditions weren’t that bad actually. At least I don’t remember them being that bad. I could have been a basket case! lol

  3. I am linguistic, one of my ideal careers is as a philosopher! That’s funny. Cool quiz, your result is good too. I didn’t realise how far you had gotten in your Amercan Idol, it’s amazing! Must have been scary!

  4. I got:

    57% Logical, 35% Spatial, 6% Linguistic, 27% Intrapersonal, 8% Interpersonal, 14% Musical, 25% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 61% Naturalistic!

    …which to an extent is probably fairly accurate.
