How Are You Smart?

This semester I am learning some great information about teaching strategies that address all different types of learners. In my undergraduate study I learned a lot about Multiple Intelligence Theories. This week for my Differentiated Instruction class I was reminded of good ole' Gardner as we were required to take an online survey to identify our strongest intelligences. It was fun for me to do this survey and see how my personality contributes to how I like to learn.

My Top 3 Intelligences
1) Intrapersonal
2) Visual/Spatial
3) Language
For those of you who know me well, does that sound about right?

Now for your challenge, follow the link and figure out your strengths!

Don’t be intimidated to give it a try. I would love to read some comments on your top 3 intelligences? Remember…it is not about how smart you are, rather how you are smart!


  1. Your 3 top "smarts" totally sound like you! How about mine?

    1. Kinesthetic
    2. Naturalist
    3. Intrapersonal/Interpersonal..a perfect tie

  2. Oh Yeah, that says Jenn! I am glad you played along (smiles!)

  3. Here are mine - they seem to be right on. :)
    1. Linguistic
    2. Intrapersonal
    3. Interpersonal

    Enjoy your weekend!

  4. During the Superbowl commericials I quizzed Kevin on his intelligences. I think they came out pretty right on, despite the distraction...
    1) Kinesthetic
    2) Spatial
    3) Interpersonal


Thanks for taking a moment to comment. I love to hear from you!
