About This Quiz

You know that you have a giant brain, but do you know which type of intelligence you possess? You might think you are more book smart than you are street smart, but are you sure you aren't something else? Since the early 80s, psychology has determined that there are nine different kinds of intelligence types. 

In 1983, psychologist Howard Gardener unleashed these nine intelligence types on the world. Maybe you're 'nature smart' and traverse mountaintops and open roads with the ease of a scout-turned-cartographer. Instead, you could be 'logical smart' and fix even the most broken html code. Perhaps you're 'people smart' which allows you to gain the trust of your coworkers as easily as a Shakespearean actor gains the trust of an audience. You could even be 'life smart' and understand the big picture with a clarity that would make most self-help authors envious.

Once you make your way through our questions, we will reveal your intelligence type! All you have to do is be yourself, and you'll make it easy for us to figure it out. Are you ready to learn which kind of intelligence you possess?
