The Multiple Intelligence Test

I don't usually go in for things like this, but I ran across the Multiple Intelligence Test at anything but ordinary and I decided to give it a try. If you take the test, post a comment with your scores! Mine follow below:

Linguistic: 8
Logical-Mathematical: 6
Spatial: 7
Bodily-Kinesthetic: 3
Musical: 11
Interpersonal: 5
Intrapersonal: 6

My highest score was:

Musical - the ability to understand and develop musical technique, to respond emotionally to music and to work together to use music to meet the needs of others, to interpret musical forms and ideas, and to create imaginative and expressive performances and compositions. Possible vocations that use the musical intelligence include technician, music teacher, instrument maker, choral, band, and orchestral performer or conductor, music critic, aficionado, music collector, composer, conductor, and individual or small group performer.

Certainly such a simple test is not going to produce a particularly accurate assessment, let alone keenly perceptive insights into one's soul. I found myself second-guessing some of the questions, imagining that my answers would increase one measure only at the expense of another. Nonetheless I found a number of the questions pretty interesting, and worth some future thought. The test makers have more to offer on the concept of multiple intelligences.

I'm very curious what other people think!


Linguistic: 11

Musical: 7
Interpersonal: 6
Intrapersonal: 3

Incidentally, you've got the wrong link -- it should be http://www.mitest.com/o7inte~1.htm

Thank you! It's fixed now, as are a plethora of typos.

My two highest were musical and linguistic, Sven!!

But of course! I don't know where my linguistic score is coming from, though ...

linguistic 10
logic/math 7
spatial 12
bodily/kinesthetic 11
musical 12
interpersonal 3
intrapersonal 9

Fun to take, but I'm not convinced the results mean anything in the real world...
