The other day, a friend was telling me about the 9 types of intelligence and it got me thinking about any correspondences. The 9 types are: naturalist, logical-mathematical, spatial, musical, existential, interpersonal, intrapersonal, kinaesthetic and linguistic.

I took this quiz(which you'll have to copy and paste)
Multiple Intelligences -- Assessment

And out of a maximum value of 5 for each type my reults were:

4.71 Spatial
4.57 Nature
3.29 Self (intrapersonal)

and my lowest by far was mathematical at 1.43.

Reading an article on my results don't really match INFP

What did you get? Does it match what you might expect for your type?

Short analysis:
My type: IxxP fi dom description fits me better. Have done this tests before, and tend to score higher on logic/math and langauge, and lower on self and not have bode movement as highest its tend to be logic/math.
4 Body movement
3.43 Self
2.86 Logic/math
Fi doms tend to be good at language ,and music. And logic/math lowest. But for me its the opposite.
And my langauge and music are my lowest intelligence.

4.71 Self (Intrapersonal)
4.00 Language
4.00 Logic/Math


3.71 Spatial
3.57 Social (Interpersonal)
3.00 Musical
2.29 Nature (Naturalist)
2.14 Kinesthetic


Self: You have a very good sense of self. You like to spend time by yourself and think things over. You will often take in information from another person, mull it over by yourself, and come back to that person later to discuss it. You like working on projects on your own. You often prefer to learn by trial and error. Effective techniques to enhance your learning include keeping a journal and giving yourself time to reflect on new ideas and information.

Language: You enjoy enjoy saying, hearing, and seeing words. You like telling stories. You are motivated by books, records, dramas, opportunities for writing. Effective techniques of enhancing your learning using your language intelligence include reading aloud, especially plays and poetry. Another idea is to write down reflections on what you've read. You may also enjoy exploring and developing your love of words, i.e., meanings of words, origin of words and idioms, names.

Logic/math:You enjoy exploring how things are related, and you like to understand how things work. You like mathematical concepts, puzzles and manipulative games. You are good at critical thinking.

Being high in logic/math is expected for an INTP. I guess I really practiced with intrapersonal skills since I think it is important to know yourself so I can make the logical decision or belief.. +a couple of years of personal development seems to help. My own need for intrapersonal knowledge is probably one of the main reasons I'm obsessed with personality typing in the first place. The skill in language must have gotten in there because of all the books I read.

Oh well, gotta agree with kinesthetic being last. I'm shitty at sports. My hand eye coordination is terrible and so are my other physical skills. You'd expect for a Fe inferior to be worse at interpersonal skills but I've done some effort over my amazing lack of them in my past.

5 - Logic/math.
4.14 - Musical.
4 - Social/Interpersonal.

I'm a computer science/engineering student who always loved maths and science, this caused me to self-type as NTP types. I'm always patronising and looking for logical correlations between situations, ideas and objects with said ones being put into insight.

Also, as the stereotype says, I suck at sports. 1.86 in Kinesthetic which is not surpising me at all.

Top three: musical: 4.86
spatial: 4.57
nature: 4.14
followed by:
social: 4.00
language 3.57
body movement: 3.57
self: 3
logical/math 2.14

Music and art are huge parts of my world and I feel happiest out in nature, so all of this makes sense. It's fun to share it with other people, so, yep, social in the fourth place makes sense.

I'm not good at anything that involves rapid movements, especially of incoming projectiles, probably due to eyesight and depth perception. This definitely had an effect on my "body movement" score. I am, however, a "tactile learner."

But I think that my scores make sense for my type (esfp).

ENFP here!

Top three:
Music: 4.86
Spatial: 4.29
Social: 3.57

And you wonder why I thought I was an ESFP for a while! <img src="" border="0" alt="" title="Happy" class="inlineimg" />

It’s actually a game in my family to find songs I don’t know. They’ll play random songs for me and if I can’t guess the song in ten seconds, I lose. I can usually identify it based off the first beat of music, though.

I’m also the navigator on campus and in the family, so I’d expect spatial to be high. Seriously, though—complete strangers will stop me and ask how to get somewhere. I guess I look like I know where I’m going?

And social? Well, what else did you expect from an ENFP? 😂

Language: 3.43
Body: 3.43
Self: 3.29
Nature: 2.71
Math: 1.57

Guess I should pay more attention to nature and.... *shudders*... math.

Huh? Why does it ask if I have a large vocabulary instead of testing me for it, like an IQ test would? I don't want to decide between 4 and 5, I want the test to decide...

Spatial: You remember things visually, including exact sizes and shapes of objects. You like posters, charts, and graphics. You like any kind of visual clues. You enjoy drawing. Effective techniques of enhancing your learning using your spatial intelligence include creating and/or using pictures, maps, diagrams, and graphs as you learn things.

Pretty accurate.

Nature: You are sensitive to nature and environment. You probably know the names of rocks, flowers, birds, and trees. You love to be outdoors.

Not very accurate. I don't know names of rocks or crap like that.

Musical:You like the rhythm and sound of language. You like poems, songs, and jingles. You enjoy humming or singing along with music. You probably remember things well when they are associated with music or rhythm. Try to incorporate sounds into your lessons, such as using a familiar tune, song, or rap beat to teach spelling rules, or to remember words in a series for a test.

Very accurate. I was nodding my head the whole time reading.

Self = 4.14
Nature = 2.86
Language = 2.71

I don't really see a connection to being ISFJ, but rather type 4. And being hyper-aware of my weaknesses. I was kind of brutally honest.
