Multiple Intelligences Quiz Research supports the idea that children (and adults) benefit from reflecting upon their own learning processes. Learning about your students’ strengths can help you help your students to choose appropriate ways to solve problems for themselves and can provide you with insights to help them develop to their fullest potential. Learning about your own strengths can help you gain insight into your own teaching, and help you better understand your students. Discuss each of the following questions with a partner: Word Smart (Linguistic intelligence) Do you like to read books or listen to stories? Do you like word games like Scrabble and Password? Do you like to tell jokes and appreciate rhymes, puns, clever raps, and tongue twisters? Number Smart (Logical-Mathematical Intelligence) Do you like math? Do you wonder about how things work? Do you enjoy strategy games, logic puzzles, and brain-teasers? Picture Smart (Spatial Intelligence) Do you enjoy doing art projects? Are you good at doing mazes and jigsaw puzzles? Can you imagine pictures in your mind? Do you like to draw or doodle? Body Smart (Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence) Do you like sports? Do you like to learn by watching or by doing? Do you like working with your hands? (building models, sewing, etc.) Music Smart (Musical Intelligence) Do you remember songs easily? Do you like to play musical instruments, tap out rhythms, or sing? Do you like to listen to music? People Smart (Interpersonal Intelligence) Would you prefer to invite friends over (rather than playing by yourself)? Do you have several different best friends? Do you prefer talking about problems with someone or working them out yourself? Self Smart (Intrapersonal Intelligence) Do you like spending time alone? Do you like thinking about what you want to do in the future? Do you like to fit in with a group or are you happy to be a little different? Adapted from: 7 Kinds of Smart: Discovering and Using Your Natural Intelligence. Thomas Armstrong, Plume/Penguin, New York. 1993
