Your Top Intelligences are Intrapersonal and Linguistic
"Personality is to a man what perfume is to a flower." — Charles M. Schwab
Your Multiple Intelligences
Your top three intelligences are Intrapersonal, Linguistic and Interpersonal.
Howard Gardner, a graduate of Harvard University and a developmental psychologist, developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences in 1986. Gardner believes that intelligence, the way it has traditionally been understood (logically, as with I.Q. tests), does not explain the wide variety of human abilities. The theory of Multiple Intelligences suggests that we excel with different types of intelligence.
In addition to being logical and Number Smart, a person might also be Word Smart, People Smart or Picture Smart. Gardner has identified several intelligences: Verbal/Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical, Visual/Spatial, Bodily/Kinesthetic, Musical, Intrapersonal, Interpersonal and Naturalist.

"Personality is that which is most intimate to me—that by which I must act out my life. It is that by which I belong to man, that by which I am able to reach after God; and He has given to me this pearl of great price. It is an immortal treasure; it is mine, it is His, and no man shall pluck it out of His hand." — Hugh Reginald Haweis
