About This Quiz

If you're expecting this quiz to determine your IQ, don't get your hopes up. Rather, this quiz will measure what type of intelligence you possess. There are nine types of intelligence; spacial, naturalist, musical, logical/mathematical, existential, interpersonal, bodily/kinesthetic, linguistic and interpersonal. Each one of these intelligence types focuses on things that the people who have that type of intelligence excel at. They don't measure ways of learning or IQ levels, but rather things like how you see the world, yourself, research and facts.

This scale of intelligence can be more useful than IQ tests because that will just give you a number out of a range, but it won't tell you where you strengths lie, so that you can focus on your weaknesses and try to attain more well-rounded intelligence. These intelligence types were developed in 1983 by development psychologist, Howard Gardener. Measuring intelligence this way can help those who struggle with math or science still feel like they are smart at other things, and not get down on themselves for not being "smart." Not everyone is good at equations and theories.

The words you recognize and how you relate them to other things can help identify which type of intelligence you possess. Take this word association quiz, and we'll guess your intelligence!
