What MI Am I?

There is currently no official assessment of Multiple Intelligences.

Many people, and especially policymakers, are persistent in their desire to develop an instrument for measuring intelligences. Howard Gardner advises against self-assessment, as most people do not possess insights into their own strengths and don’t know how to differentiate preferences, interests, and computational capacities. Triangulation is the key to an accurate measure of intelligences, that is, having individuals rate themselves as well as having their family, friends, and teachers rate them.

That being said, please enjoy the following quiz, knowing that it is not an official profile of your intelligences.
