Multiple Intelligences Self-Assessment

Main image for Multiple Intelligences self-assessment quiz This quiz asks 24 questions and will take less than five minutes to complete. Try not to think too hard -- just go with your first thought when describing your daily activities and interests. By the end, you may have some new insights into the way you think. 

For more information about the theory of Multiple Intelligences, check out our in-depth article: Multiple Intelligences: What Does the Research Say? You may also want to watch an interview with Howard Gardner: Big Thinkers: Howard Gardner on Multiple Intelligences.

Mine is fairly spread out...I'm not really sure as to what that means or what these percentages can truly tell a person. I agree with Howard Gardner that we all have the ability to be strong in anything, but it usually helps when there's a passion or motive involved.

linguistic-58%
logical mathematical- 63%
visual-spatial- 50%
intrapersonal-69%
interpersonal- 50%
musical- 31%
bodily-kinetic- 25%
naturalistic-67%

Not really surprised by this. I always knew I didn't have the gift of tongue. As much as I might have liked too. Can definitely see the visual-spatial and naturalistic being what they are. Otherwise, things seem to be more or less balanced.

This makes sense! I love teaching children and working with the elderly, singing to and with them, telling stories, reading aloud, becoming different characters from the books, etc. I have a small kennel of 6 Toy Poodles and love using them as therapy dogs with children and elderly. I enjoy gardening and being in nature, especially with my fur babies! :-)

Is it possible to export the results from this self-assessment into a spreadsheet? We'd like to store the data from all of our students to enhance our teachers ability to meet the needs of various students.

Sorry, getreel13, but that feature isn't available, and given the challenges connected to authorizing access to student information, I'm not sure that's something we'll ever be able to do.

It opened my eyes on things that i can improve to succeed better in life. And some stuff its right on the point i love it. Nature gardening i can do all day everyday. I love to read also but i need to be in peace no one to be asking questions more like no kids saying mom mom lol...one thing, im a little confused about one answer i do speak 3 languages lol. i love stuff like this it really makes me think a little its like looking in the mirror you see some stuff you didn't want to see before haha.

Survey Says!: Even everything except for naturalistic and bodiy-kinesthetic.

While I'd like to do things like exercise more, I simply don't much due to work, so I can see where that would come into play. The higher points are located in linguistic (I'm a natural at picking up languages, albiet only for a short period of time so far), intrapersonal and interpersonal. I should be a teacher... Hmmm
