My Intelligences Chart
My Strengths and Weaknesses• My strengths on the multiple intelligences test were the strongest in Visual-Spatial, Intrapersonal, and Naturalistic intelligences while my lower scores were in the Linguistic and Interpersonal intelligence fields. I believe that the reason why my intrapersonal intelligence was my strongest was due to the fact that I am constantly withdrawn and have a tendency to study on my own. Even when I was younger, I would always want to work on my own and dreaded working in groups because I have strong opinions on how certain activities should be accomplished. This creates problems for me when I am working in a group which is why my interpersonal intelligence was one of my lowest scores. My lowest score was in the linguistic field which I believe is because my mom is a science teacher and so she put more emphasis on learning science (why I am a naturalistic learner) rather than on vocabulary and spelling.
Intrapersonal Intelligence• In the drugs and consciousness unit, the assignment related to one of my strongest intelligences very well (visual-spatial) however, it would have been a lot easier for me if we had not worked in groups on the website you assigned us to create. It was very difficult for me to get my own group together and there was even some confusion as to who was in whose group. A great activity for the drugs and consciousness chapters would have been for me to create a PowerPoint on my own rather than in a group. This would have greatly helped me because I have a highly strong intrapersonal intelligence so I would have been more effective with my work on the drug website.
Visual-Spatial Intellect • My visual-spatial intellect is my second strongest way of learning. This means that I can easily learn by someone showing me what to do through movies, drawings, charts, etc. An experiment that could have better helped me in the classical conditioning unit would involve me making or finding a movie of someone who is being conditioned rather than a comic strip. I am a strong visual-spatial learner and I feel that if I had seen the characters move, I would have been much more interested in the “ToonDoo” website rather than just looking at boxes. Although, the activity you had us participate in was very helpful to me anyways.
A Naturalistic Mind• The brain experiment (we had to make a brain out of Styrofoam and play-do) was also very helpful to me already. Another activity that could have been done though was an activity in which I could have made the brains of other animals. This would have helped me in a compare/contrast sense because I have a strong sense of naturalistic learning. I would have been better able to discriminate parts of the brain through either comparing or contrasting a human brain to that of another species. I also feel that if I had made it in an outdoors environment, I could have been able to focus my thoughts more on the project rather than getting distracted by the technologies in my house.
