About This Quiz

When it comes to intelligence, we are all smart in different ways. One might be a master of language but be unable to figure out how to change a tire. Quite often, some of the most intelligent people have a hard time with things that seem to be simple common sense to the rest of us. A lot of people who feel dumb simply aren't, it is just that their minds work differently than most. The key to doing well in life is really to figure out what sort of intelligence you have and focus your energy on that.

There really are so many different ways that one can be intelligent. Some of these inlude naturalist intelligence, musical intelligence, logical and mathematical intelligence, and types of intelligence that have to do with understanding people and being good with words.
