How My Top Three Multiple Intelligences Apply to My Personal Life! What They Mean and Say About Me
Or a better question would be; what are your top three multiple intelligences?
So Bijal, how intelligent are you?
Multiple Intelligences testing are more inclusive than IQ testing
Verbal - Linguistic
Mathematical - Logical
Visual - Spatial
Bodily - Kinesthetic
The results for my top three intelligences are Logical - Mathematical = 81%, Bodily - Kinesthetic = 72% and Musical Rhythmic = 69%.
How can these help me pick career choices? What do these mean and say about my personal life?
Bijal Chauhan - November 22 2018 One day, I met with my Guidance Counsellor to discuss what career choices I should consider.
The length is 24 meters and the width is 12 meters. I think the fence should have 1 meter of height. We should order 288 fence materials.
How much fencing material should we order Bijal? We need enough to enclose our front yard.
Unsure about what the question meant, I researched multiple intelligences. I discovered that in 1983 Dr. Howard Gardener created a theory to propose that humans potentially have eight ranges of intelligences. Traditional intelligence is based off an IQ test and is too limited.
Great work Bijal! Kick your legs nice and high!
This is really working our legs!
I feel less stressed now!
I found my top three intelligences results from my research, and occupations that suit them. As I am going to sleep, I think about which occupations I want to pursuit. I also think about what has happened in my life that corresponds to each intelligence I have.
Acknowledging that my top intelligence is being math smart, I think about why? What have I done in my life that proves I am math smart. I remember when we were building a fence in my front yard and I helped my Dad measure the perimeter of it and calculate how much fencing we needed. I always help my parents with logical thinking and mathematical tasks.
I have Mathematical - Logical Intelligence because I always help my parents with math problems such as handling money, calculating how much of something we may need by using logical reasoning and thinking.
My second intelligence is Body Smart. I do Zumba Dance classes four times a week. I choose to go on days I feel stressed out about school work such as upcoming tests, assignments or science experiments. I use it to have fun and take a break from my academic life. Zumba allows me to express how overwhelmed I am by letting all my worries go with physically dance moves.
I have Bodily - Kinesthetic Intelligence because I consistently do Zumba to physically express my feelings. I express my stress feelings with hands-on work such as the dance moves and exercise my body to relieve stress symptoms such as tense shoulders.
My third intelligence is Music/Sound Smart. I play the acoustic guitar at family parties to express a mood. At Christmas parties, I would play Jingle Bells to make everyone feel festive. I also played the bass guitar in grade 9 music class where I detected and analyzed musical themes such as Jazz music and I created a solo to perform in the middle of the Blues Song.
I have Musical Rhythmic Intelligence because I create and feel a rhythm to express a mood, and can detect and analyze musical themes. For example, when I play my guitar to set a festive mood.
