I'm intrapersonal first and foremost, then linguistic, then logical-mathematical.

I have my own brand of intelligence with big blotches of ignorance. I have much to learn, much to understand.

It seems that "Intrapersonal" is my primary intelligence; my secondary would be "Musical" (I've played piano for over 10 years, I've played the saxophone for 7 years, and I've also written out sheet music by ear----Check out my YouTube channel where I post my music performances at www.youtube.com/joepianist)

Well... 2 and 5, though I will say that the experimental psychologist in me is very inclined to point out the incompleteness (and ineffectiveness) of this classification system, especially considering how several of these areas overlap quite a bit (2, 4, and 5; 1 and 7; etc.).
Then again, I'm just not entirely satisfied with just about any classification of intelligence that I have come across thus far (which isn't a lot as my current work is focused on memory and not one of the many classifications of intelligence), so pay no attention to me.


you seem like the indefinite analytically inclined person:p if you can analyze that group of intelligences and tell me that they even overlap but its more of whats the one you MOSTLY fall under? which I cannot tell you but everyone has atleast acouple of these



I was mostly trying to comment on how the system isn't sufficient to provide a full description of "intelligence" as people tend to understand it. Do most people show some ability in some of the areas described by this model of intelligence? Yes. Does this model provide a somewhat decent method of classification that could help people with deciding what careers to pursue? Maybe. Does this model completely encapsulate what would be considered intelligence? Not necessarily. Although these eight categories do seem to cover most areas, but I'm not fully convinced that they cover everything (for example, having a good memory in general can also be considered a sign of intelligence, but memory is only included for specific subsets of information in the categories). Does this model provide an easily interpretable space? Not really, considering the aforementioned overlap (or covariance, rather).

One last bit, is that this model (Specifically, Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences) isn't really anything more than a framework (albeit a relatively poor one). I realize that Wikipedia isn't the most reliable source, but there's a couple of bits of information regarding Gardner's model that are of particular interest and cannot be ignored: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_multiple_intelligences#Critical_reception
In particular, the subsections on how the definitions used in Gardner's model are tautological and on how this model lacks empirical support are especially interesting.

TL;DR: This model is mildly entertaining. But that's about it.
And, yes, I realize that this thread was probably intended to be a bit of innocent fun. If that's the case, then I apologize.

well of course it was for fun :]
I relied on the internet for my definitions thanks for noticing. lol silly..

Logical-mathematical explains me well, since I am in graduate school for applied math currently.
Also it's funny how many people here fit into the same personality types. I guess anime does attract similar minds after all, huh?

Mostly 5. Spatial - I tend to associate most things I learn with images, and seem to learn and retain information easily when associating information with vivid mental images.

Also, partially 2. Logical-mathematical - I can reason very well, and I am able to recognize patterns very easily as well. Though I don't know about the calculating bit.

Maybe 7. Interpersonal as well. I tend to have the ability to understand the intentions and motivations of others, but I don't find that I work effectively with others in the slightest.

Although, this system of measuring intellectual intelligence is pretty simplified, and, as entropiCCycles stated, allot of the types overlap quite a bit. For example, I don't think being able to recognize patterns is necessarily related to calculation (in a mathematical sense), and being able to compose music doesn't necessarily mean an ability to sing and play.

Nevertheless, the idea is pretty entertaining, and I had a good time thinking on this.

5. Spatial - Tend to think in pictures and need to create vivid mental
images to retain information.

I don't know. Post some sort of test so I can find out.
