Types of Intelligence

After reading this post from CMack, I took the quiz he's referring to, which measures a person's different types of intelligence. (The quiz is produced by Service Canada's career site.)

Apparently my top three types of intelligence are:

Verbal/Linguistic (94%)
You make sense out of the world through language and can use words effectively either speaking or in writing. Writers and editors have this intelligence.

Musical (94%)
You can create, communicate, and understand meanings made out of sounds. Composers and musicians have this intelligence.

Logical/Mathematical (81%)
You appreciate abstract relationships and can use numbers effectively. Scientists, mathematicians, and philosophers have this intelligence.

However, like Chris, I also take issue with the way the quiz scores interpersonal intelligence. Being introverted doesn't mean you lack interpersonal intelligence. Oh Canada.
