finding my strengths

Intelligence Score (5.0 is highest) Description


Self: You have a very good sense of self. You like to spend time by yourself and think things over. You will often take in information from another person, mull it over by yourself, and come back to that person later to discuss it. You like working on projects on your own. You often prefer to learn by trial and error. Effective techniques to enhance your learning include keeping a journal and giving yourself time to reflect on new ideas and information. More ideas:

  • Go on "guided imagery" tours.

  • Set aside time to reflect on new ideas and information.

  • Encourage journal writing.

  • Work on the computer.

  • Practice breathing for relaxation.

  • Use brainstorming methods before reading.

  • Listen to and read "how to" tapes and books.

  • Read cookbooks.


Spatial: You remember things visually, including exact sizes and shapes of objects. You like posters, charts, and graphics. You like any kind of visual clues. You enjoy drawing. Effective techniques of enhancing your learning using your spatial intelligence include creating and/or using pictures, maps, diagrams, and graphs as you learn things. Other suggestions:

  • Write a language experience story and then illustrate it.

  • Color code words so each syllable is a different color.

  • Write a word on the blackboard with a wet finger. Visualize the word as it disappears. See if you can spell it afterwards.

  • Take a survey. Put the information in a chart.

  • Write words vertically.

  • Cut out words from a magazine and use them in a letter.

  • Visualize spelling words.

  • Use colorful newspapers like USA Today.

  • Use crossword puzzles.


Body Movement: You like to move, dance, wiggle, walk, and swim. You are likely good at sports, and you have good fine motor skills. You may enjoy taking things apart and putting them back together. Incorporating body movement into your learning will help you process and retain information better. Here are some ideas.

  • Trace letters and words on each other's back.

  • Use magnetic letters, letter blocks, or letters on index cards to spell words.

  • Take a walk while discussing a story or gathering ideas for a story.

  • Make pipe cleaner letters. Form letters out of bread dough. After you shape your letters, bake them and eat them!

  • Use your whole arm (extend without bending your elbow) to write letters and words in the air.

  • Change the place where you write and use different kinds of tools to write, ie., typewriter, computer, blackboard, or large pieces of paper.

  • Write on a mirror with lipstick or soap.

  • Take a walk and read all the words you find during the walk.

  • Handle a Koosh ball or a worry stone during a study session.

  • Take a break and do a cross-lateral walk.

The scores for your other five intelligences:

Language Math Nature Social Musical
3.14 3 2.86 2.29 1.14

Just because these five are not in your top three doesn’t mean you’re not strong in them. If your average score for any intelligence is above three, you’re probably using that intelligence quite often to help you learn. Take a look at the Practice section to see how to engage all your intelligences.
