Everyone Is Talented In Their Own Way: The 9 Types Of Intelligence You Should Know
Lim Kairen

We always think of intelligence as one entity.
We think that scientists and academics are brainy and “intelligent” people.
But if we put them in a bank, they may be at a loss for words when speaking to customers.
And what about the misconceptions about people engaged in less intelligible jobs
such as waiting tables or telemarketing who are deemed “unintelligent? Try giving these people
an empty canvas and watch them create a masterpiece for you with just a pencil.
The point is, our perception of intelligence is skewed.
Everything that seems out of our reach is automatically deemed as intelligent
however on the contrary, according to psychologist, Howard Gardner, everyone is blessed
with multiple types intelligence. See the infographic below to have a better understanding.

The Science Behind 9 Types Of Intelligence
The 9 types of intelligence as theorized by Gardner in his book called Frames of Mind:
The Theory of Multiple Intelligences is a great tool to find your individual strengths and weaknesses.         And the scientific concept behind it is simple.
Gardner’s view on intelligence states that there are 9 abilities
that simply make us the intelligent beings that we are today
and these 9 are musical-rhythmic, visual-spatial, verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical,
 bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalistic and existential.

Different Types Of Intelligence To Empower Learners
By learning the theory behind Gardner’s studies, we get to know ourselves a little bit better.               However, Gardner emphasised that by understanding our strengths,
it shouldn’t limit us through labelling ourselves to a specific intelligence. 
Instead, it should empower us to recognise our weaknesses as well as to improve them.

Understand Your Own Intelligence
Simply by  taking the test  based on the 9 types of intelligence,
you’ll be able to have a basic understanding of which intelligence you are strong at.
Take note that you should be providing your most honest answer
in order for the results to be more accurate.

Everyone Is Unique
So here below are my results that reaffirm that embarking on a writing career is a great choice
for me because I’m linguistically intelligent. It also indicates that I’m typically good at reading, writing, telling stories and memorizing words as according to Gardner.
However, apart from letting me know about my strengths, it would also mean that
I’ve much work to do in other departments such as logic, interpersonal skills
and maybe on my visual ability to visualize better with my mind’s eye.
So why not give this test a try
and maybe it’ll just change the way you perceive your own unique intelligence forever.

M'reen's results.
Your intrapersonal intelligence dominates your brain. You are extremely self-aware and reflective. You have a strong moral compass and passionate opinions on what you believe is right or wrong. 
You constantly contemplate life on a deeper level and take pride in expressing yourself
through creative processes.
This means that you also have very high levels of linguistic and existentialist intelligence.
You see life through a more intense lens than many people and this allows you to create
meaningful relationships in your personal and professional life.

Naïs Flament’s take on this result:  Interpersonal (People Smart)
Your most dominant intelligence type is interpersonal, or in other words... you are people smart! 
You pick incredibly well on social clues and you are fascinated to learn about new people
and cultures. Your strongest fields of study are in history, anthropology and psychology
- areas which study the human condition and social processes.
You also have strengths with your linguistic and existential intelligence. 
You are curious to read and learn about new things and you spend time pondering life
and trying to answer deep and meaningful questions.
