Everyone is smart in something as there is stated to be 9 different types of intelligence. What type of intelligence are you? I would say mine would consist of interpersonal and musical intelligence. What about you guys?

1. Naturalistic Intelligence - Nature Smart - Human ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) and features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations). This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef.

2. Musical Intelligence - Musical intelligence is the capacity to discern pitch, rhythm, timbre, and tone. This intelligence enables us to recognize, create, reproduce, and reflect on music, as demonstrated by composers, conductors, musicians, vocalist, and sensitive listeners.

3. Logical - Mathematical intelligence - Logical-mathematical intelligence is the ability to calculate, quantify, consider propositions and hypotheses, and carry out complete mathematical operations. It enables us to perceive relationships and connections and to use abstract, symbolic thought; sequential reasoning skills; and inductive and deductive thinking patterns. Logical intelligence is usually well developed in mathematicians, scientists, and detectives.

4. Existential Intelligence - Sensitivity and capacity to tackle deep questions about human existence, such as the meaning of life, why do we die, and how did we get here. Basically spiritual and religious intelligence.

5. Interpersonal Intelligence - Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand and interact effectively with others. It involves effective verbal and nonverbal communication, the ability to note distinctions among others, sensitivity to the moods and temperaments of others, and the ability to entertain multiple perspectives. Teachers, social workers, actors, and politicians all exhibit interpersonal intelligence.

6. Bodily - Kinesthetic Intelligence - Bodily kinesthetic intelligence is the capacity to manipulate objects and use a variety of physical skills. This intelligence also involves a sense of timing and the perfection of skills through mind–body union. Athletes, dancers, surgeons, and craftspeople exhibit well-developed bodily kinesthetic intelligence.

7. Linguistic Intelligence - Linguistic intelligence is the ability to think in words and to use language to express and appreciate complex meanings. Linguistic intelligence allows us to understand the order and meaning of words and to apply meta-linguistic skills to reflect on our use of language. Linguistic intelligence is the most widely shared human competence and is evident in poets, novelists, journalists, and effective public speakers.

8. Intra-personal Intelligence - Intra-personal intelligence is the capacity to understand oneself and one’s thoughts and feelings, and to use such knowledge in planning and directioning one’s life. Intra-personal intelligence involves not only an appreciation of the self, but also of the human condition. It is evident in psychologist, spiritual leaders, and philosophers.

9. Spatial Intelligence - Spatial intelligence is the ability to think in three dimensions. Core capacities include mental imagery, spatial reasoning, image manipulation, graphic and artistic skills, and an active imagination. Sailors, pilots, sculptors, painters, and architects all exhibit spatial intelligence.

I'd say a large mixture of interpersonal, intra-personal, and linguistic.

#16 Posted by Wolverine08 (45683 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd also add linguistic intelligence. I've always been called loquacious.

A little of 3, some of seven.... not much else.

I feel like I don't even understand myself lol. Maybe I'm stuck in a phase.

#19 Posted by OmniBeast (513 posts) - - Show Bio

Not to be a downer or anything....

First I'll answer the question. 3/4/5/7/8 ... 9 debatable

Two, the idea of 9 intelligence is only a theory. There are multiple theories of how much types of intelligence there are.

I like this post though.

I'd say a combination of all except 2 and 7. 3, 6, and 9 are heavily used in my career.

#38 Posted by Eisenfauste (8930 posts) - - Show Bio

interpersonal.

#39 Posted by JediXMan (31313 posts) - - Show Bio

4, 5, 7, 8.

Basically, my talents lie in the areas of literature, writing, communications, philosophy, and history.

To a lesser extent: 2 and 3. I enjoy music and the many dimensions of it, but have no real ability to compose. I am good at math, yet I dislike it; I do, however, enjoy logic and reasoning in terms of philosophical situations.

Mostly 2,3,6, and 8.

2 and 6 can be learned, and drumline has definitely helped with that.

3 I learned through my passion for the subject.

8 cause that comes as naturally as breathing.

I watch a lot of Dog Whisperer, Dr.Phil, RiverMonsters, Jerry Springer, etc so I got a good idea how spiritual energy works and a decent understanding of the human mind
