I'm not sure I agree with this, but it was fun to take!

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


8% Logical, 35% Spatial, 29% Linguistic, 57% Intrapersonal, 37% Interpersonal, 43% Musical, 12% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 6% Naturalistic!

"This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. Those who are strongest in this intelligence are typically introverts and prefer to work alone. They are usually highly self-aware and capable of understanding their own emotions, goals and motivations. They often have an affinity for thought-based pursuits such as philosophy. They learn best when allowed to concentrate on the subject by themselves. There is often a high level of perfectionism associated with this intelligence.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include philosophers, psychologists, theologians, writers and scientists." (Wikipedia)

  • * Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.

  • * Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.

just a meme.... [Oct. 31st, 2007|04:47 pm]

Your Score: Dixie Royal

You are 81% true Southern!

You are pure belle or gentleman! You know your Jones Soda, Nehi and RC colas, your Moon Pies and sweet potato pie; you'd absolutely die without air conditioners in the summer, and you've seen Steel Magnolias and Fried Green Tomatoes (or read the book!). Your grandmother lives in an antebellum home and has a cook who makes the best fried chicken and asparagus casserole and summer squash and everything else in the world. And you know the taste of honeysuckle and the feel of grass between your toes.
You are blessed.

so I found another meme... [Oct. 6th, 2007|06:38 pm]
I actually didn't find it a hard quiz. But then again, I probably have as many theology books and commentaries as I do cookbooks, or fencing books, or computer science books...

You know the Bible 100%!

Wow! You are awesome! You are a true Biblical scholar, not just a hearer but a personal reader! The books, the characters, the events, the verses - you know it all! You are fantastic!
