Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test

I followed a link from Steph Burgis's blog this morning and took the an online personality test. It yields the same result as pretty much every other personality test I've taken:

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...


51% Logical, 35% Spatial, 45% Linguistic, 29% Intrapersonal, 27% Interpersonal, 16% Musical, 4% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 31% Naturalistic!

"This area has to do with logic, abstractions, inductive and deductive reasoning, and numbers. While it is often assumed that those with this intelligence naturally excel in mathematics, chess, computer programming, and other logical or numerical activities, a more accurate definition places emphasis less on traditional mathematical ability and more reasoning capabilities, abstract pattern recognition, scientific thinking and investigation, and the ability to perform complex calculations.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include scientists, mathematicians, engineers, doctors and economists." (Wikipedia)
