What Type of Learner Are You?

In our first lesson in 1º BAC this year we have been reading about Dr. Howard Gardner´s theory of 8 multiple intelligences; do you remember the intelligences he refers to?: 
  • linguistic / verbal : good with words, with spoken and written language; it involves the ability to learn languages.
  • logical / mathematical: good with math and logic; it involves being able to analyze problems logically, to carry out mathematical operations
  • musical: good with rhythm; it involves skill in the performance, composition and appreciation of musical patterns
  • bodily / kinesthetic: good with activities - using one´s whole body or parts of it to solve problems
  • spatial: good with pictures - recognizing and using the patterns of open spaces and confined areas
  • interpersonal: good with communication - understanding the desires, motivations and intentions of other people
  • intrapersonal: good at analyzing things - understanding oneself, one´s fears, feelings and motivations
  • naturalist: they enjoy interacting with nature
Do you know what intelligences are strongest for you? If you don´t, this quiz  or this one may help you. Remember Dr. Gardner thinks people use more than one type of intelligence
