Everyone is intelligent, just in different ways! Multiple intelligences are all the different ways that a person can be "smart."
Finding your Multiple Intelligence styles might help you discover parts of your personality!
Top Intelligence: Musical
I believe I am constantly using my musical intelligence. If I’m not actively listening to a song, I usually have a song playing in my head.
Secondary Intelligence: Intrapersonal
Every person has some degree of intrapersonal intelligence. Having intrapersonal intelligence is to be independent, understand oneself, and to have an interest in discovering more about your own character.
My top three intelligences are musical, intrapersonal, and verbal/linguistic, respectively. Knowing this may help me find and choose a career path, as well as learn about my strengths and habits.
Tertiary Intelligence: Verbal/Linguistic
Verbal and linguistic intelligence is closely related to musical intelligence. Linguistic people often like to read, write, and learn new languages. They often do well academically, and like to take notes during lectures.
I learn by hearing, and find it a lot easier to listen to a lecture, especially if the teacher has a nice manner of speaking; and I often become annoyed with some quirks in a person’s speaking habits or if I hear an off key tune. I find it easier to remember information in a tune or jingle (ex. phone number)
Suitable Occupation: Disc Jockey
A job best suited towards people with musical intelligence is a disc jockey- or DJ for short.
A characteristic of being intrapersonal that I show is being interested in philosophy and psychology. I am also intrapersonal in that I like to form my own opinions on topics, without any outside influence outside of facts. I may be more intrapersonal than other people in that I’ve considered the possibility of self-employment so that I will be in control of every aspect of my life.
Suitable Occupation: Scientist
A highly intrapersonal career option is a scientist. Scientists are intrapersonal because they devote their lives to discovering more about topics and theories that interest them.
I can relate to this because I was reading at a high level from a young age, and I enjoy taking notes. I also plan to take french throughout high school, and attended an extended french program in middle school.
I think being a DJ would be an interesting career option because it’s unconventional and more expressive than an office job. This could also be intrapersonal because freelancing is self employment.
DJs can play music on radio stations, or live music in nightclubs or music festivals. They can use electronic or record players to manipulate the songs; when they use records they are called a turntablist.
When I was younger I wanted to be a scientist; specifically an astrophysicist that works at SNOLAB, which is an underground facility in Sudbury, focusing on astroparticle physics (for example, answering the question “what is dark matter?”). It sounds like a lot of complicated work that I might not be able to handle.
