Here's my opinion, I'd like some other thoughts on it though... Multiple intelligence tests are, for lack of a better word, bull****. It's just a bunch of crap made up my teachers (or whoever) to make less intelligent students feel better, and possibly kill off the would-be-enormously-huge-egos, that smarter students would otherwise have. First thing is first: What makes people think that there are seperate types of "intelligence" for different people? Can they not accept the fact that some people can't do anything right? One analogy that first MI tests perfectly, is the elementry teachers telling students, "You can do anything if you put your mind to it". Most of those students obviously can't. Though a bit banal, if that were true, who would make my burgers and pizza? As for personal experience, a few years ago, I didn't like English at all. I did not like reading, nor did I like reading. I would refuse to read books, and I would just use internet contractions, when faced with writting. However, one day, I saw my friend reading Lord of the Rings, and it was HUGE! Yes, it is quite a big book. I was an arrogant kid, so I thought, "If he can do it, why can I not?" My beliefs were not unfounded. I picked up Lord of the Rings, and I finished all three books, and The Silmarillion. I went from barely being able to read, to being able to read faster than just about everyone in my class, in a couple of months. Now, I can read three lines at a time, when I need to. I can't do it for intense scientific reading, but light fiction is easy because I can processes it all. Though I still don't like reading, I can do it, very well. As for writting, I was kind of forced to write. School of course, required me to write. I actually started writting after reading Tolkien, since I loved his writting style. Yes, I can write now, too. It's interesting, because in the period of less than one year, I went from not being able to spell, to a better writter than people who had English as their first language. Isn't that sad? Now let's talk about math. I was always able to do math, though I didn't really like doing math. I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure this was because it never challenged me. What's the use in spending all those years in elementry and most of junior high learning that simple math? It's completely useless. It can be foced on kids in a couple of weeks. I knew the algebra they taught us in grade nine, when I was in grade five. PEOPLE STILL DIDN'T UNDERSTAND IT IN GRADE 9. Once I hit highschool, and I met concepts that I didn't already know, and became a little more interested. The higher I went each grade, my marks improved, especially when I jumped from normal to Advanced, when I could. Odd, eh? :) Let's talk about art. When I was a kid, I loved drawing! My uncle (I believe it's uncle, I've never been too familiar with the English family system), said my drawing capabilities at that age were amazing. This meant a lot, seeing how he's an artist. As I grew up, I just got fed up with drawing. It posed no challenge, and so, I gave it up. Musically, I can learn quite fast. I was never able to play trumpet too well, because my lip muscles wern't strong enough to hit the really high notes. However, I picked up guitar, and I learn extremely quickly. I am tone deaf, yes, but I can always correct that when I have time. Okay, interpersonal and intrapersonal are the stupidest forms of "intelligence" that I've ever heard of. Why the hell do you need intelligence to keep to yourself? Why do you need intelligence to talk to other people? I don't understand this crude thinking. Athletic "intelligence".... wow, heh. That's funny. Why is there intelligence in athletics? Athletics requires skill, yes, but that's not exactly intelligence. I've been trained in martial arts, I play badminton, tennis, table tennis, squash, and I swim. I excel in every one of those. Now, you wonder what my points were for some of those things I mentioned? Well, let's take the art example for instance. How does not doodling mean I suck at art, when I could easily pick it up? How does not reading mean I suck at reading, when I can read faster and understand more than other people that do read? I think I've given enough proof. Sorry that I only used personal examples, it's hard otherwise, to use examples. I don't think I've missed any. If I have, feel free to point it out and I'll tell you about it.
