Think you’re smart? You’re right! Everyone is intelligent, but you just have to figure out how you’re smart. You might already have a pretty good idea that you’re terrific in science and math, or that you can write mean essay. But being smart isn’t just about the honor roll at school. Being intelligent can also mean being gifted in athletics or art. In fact there are eight intelligences – which one (or two, or three) are you?

Linguistic intelligence

Are you a great story teller or always seem to have the right words when you need them? You’re likely “word smart.” This is one of the intelligences that shows up easily at school, especially in your writing or English classes.

Logical-mathematical intelligence

Another easy one to see is the “number smarts.” If math just comes easily for you or you can see patterns and solutions in logic, you’ve got math smarts. This is another one that shows up easily at school. Kids with number smarts are also great at logic puzzles and crime scenes that make the rest of us nuts.

Spatial intelligence

If you can take a hunk of clay or chicken wire and turn it into a masterpiece you have “picture smarts.” Spatial intelligence is the ability to see and understand space and how objects fit into that space. Give me a blank canvas and I draw a happy face. Give you a blank canvas and you rival the artistic greats. You’ll see picture smarts in art or photography classes.

Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence

As a girl who runs only if chased, “body smarts” are something to be envied. If you’re one of those people who can run for miles, win races, or take the team to State, you’ve got the “body smarts” I wish I had. This sort of intelligence comes out in physical education classrooms or the dance studio – not to mention the courts or track.

Musical intelligence

Play an instrument? If you seem better than your friends and don’t have to practice as much, you’ve probably got musical intelligence. Music smarts can be as simple as playing well and enjoying it or you might be one of those musical prodigies who can hear a piece of music and duplicate it immediately. The band or choir room is your natural area.

Interpersonal intelligence

People person? You’ve likely got “people smarts.” There are some individuals who are terrific around others. They are comfortable talking to strangers and also comfortable on stage. If you’re outgoing and like to chat with anyone and everyone, your gifts likely come out between classes or accidentally while the teacher is talking. You might even get in trouble from time to time for showing off your gift to others.

Intrapersonal intelligence

If you’re shy or introverted, you very likely have “self smarts.” If you know yourself better than anyone and can analyze your thoughts and feelings within seconds doing a bit of self-reflection, you’re using a skill that many people don’t possess. Knowing yourself is the kind of smarts that shows up anywhere, but maybe not to your advantage at school if you’d stay silent and hidden in a classroom.

Naturalist intelligence

Some people just have a way with nature and plants. If you can raise chickens and grow fruit trees without giving it a second thought, you likely have “nature smarts.” You might love nothing more than to be outside exploring the woods and mountains, or you might just have a strong desire to till the land and grow a garden. Either way, this kind of smarts is obvious outside, not inside, a classroom or school building.

Is it just me... or don't I see any of these things in myself. So that's obvious that I don't have the intrapersonal smarts. Naturalist? I wanna be outside yes, but grow flowers or trees? *nod* I'm like allergic to .. plants... the polls they spread. But anyways, I love drawing, but Spatial Intelligence? hmm... music

Musical Intelligence.(piano, five years)

Linguistic Intelligence. (Kinda'. I love writing.)

Spatial Intelligence, (I've always loved art.)

And possibly Naturalist Intelligence. I'm not a people person at all, and i'm horrible at math and all the logic stuff.

Great artical btw.
