Over at Integral Options Cafe, William posted about Multiple Intelligences. Multiple Intelligences is a way of exploring our diverse aptitudes. We each have strengths and weaknesses we live with and it’s very helpful to be aware of these. There’s a simple M.I. test available that measures 8 intelligences, and is a good way to begin.
My results placed my strongest intelligence as naturalistic. This makes sense, both because I’ve always had a love for nature and because understanding the workings of life has been a focus in my personal study.
Second is the linguistic intelligence, which is what I’ve always considered my strongest of these areas and the most obvious trait to be measured. I wouldn’t claim mastery of language, just an abiding love for it.
On the other end of the spectrum, my kinaesthetic intelligence is a bit weak. I’ve been actively working to improve this for a while now, and February was a turning point in my dedication to putting effort into shaping my body. An indicator like this is a strong reminder of the work still left to do.
