Another career option for the musically intelligent is just to be a musician. Musicians can be solo artists, or play in bands.
Suitable Occupation: Editor
Editors are often linguistically intelligent, because their job requires a lot of reading, and being grammatically and verbally proficient.
Suitable Occupation: Translator/Interpretor
People who are linguistically/verbally intelligent may also become translators or interpreters. Canada is very multicultural so translators are sometimes needed. However, it may be hard to get work with the growing presence of technology.
Believe it or not, knowing your Multiple Intelligences may help you steer your life to a place that’s better suited to you.
I personally don’t see this as an option for myself because the chances of being a successful musician are very slim, and I wouldn’t want to sign onto a record label that tries to control what you release and how/when you do so. Becoming a musician is more of a pipe dream to me.
Being intrapersonal and musically intelligent may also help with this job, because editors spend a lot of time alone re-reading the same material, and musical intelligence may help the words flow easily. I think being an editor would be fun because you get to read things all the time, but fact checking, re-reading, and correcting grammatical mistakes might get frustrating.
I think that being a translator is not a job well suited to me, because by the time I graduate school the demand will be smaller and it also seems boring.
