    the 9 Types of Intelligence

    Which one(s) do you think you are stonger in? In which ones are you weak at?


    There are 9 types of intelligence. Bill Gates says finding yours is key
    Marguerite Ward | @forwardist Tuesday, 16 May 2017

    Billionaire Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates knows that intelligence isn't one-size-fits-all.



    Gates built his career on strong logic and mathematical skills, establishing himself as a brilliant coder with a knack for solving technical problems. But he admits he lacked other strengths, such as strong interpersonal skills.

    In a series of posts on Twitter, Gates shares the things he wishes he knew when he was just starting out in his career.

    "Looking back on when I left college, there are some things I wish I had known," Gates writes.

    "Intelligence takes many different forms," Gates says. "It is not one-dimensional. And not as important as I used to think."

    In the 1980s, psychologist Howard Gardener identified nine types of intelligence.
    Funders and Founders designer Mark Vital highlighted what each type of intelligence can offer in this infographic.


    Spatial: Visualizing the world in 3D

    Naturalist: Understanding living things and reading nature

    Musical: Discerning sounds, their pitch, tone, rhythm and timbre

    Logical-Mathematical: Quantifying things, making hypotheses and proving them

    Existential: Tackling the questions of why we live and why we die

    Interpersonal: Sensing people's feelings and motives

    Bodily-Kinesthetic: Coordinating your mind with your body

    Linguistic: Finding the right words to express what you mean

    Intra-personal: Understanding yourself, what you feel and what you want
    There are multiple benefits to embracing your own type or types of intelligence. For starters, you can stop comparing yourself to others, and find your best work environment. You're also more aware of what skills you may need to develop.

    Gates ended his string of thoughts on a resoundingly hopeful note: "This is an amazing time to be alive. I hope you make the most of it."

    Why Bill Gates says finding your unique type of intelligence is key

    The thing about people like ENT who have Aspergers is that they will often score highish on one particular talent, or a limited range.... (in his case, presumably painting.....and his knowledge of Anthropology and health matters is good), yet very low on others, like ability to analyze or sense of proportion. In these he is laughably lacking.

    It is as if they have large gaps in their minds.

    Ant is ok...he just likes to wind up Smeg.

    Maybe to make the repo system more sophisticated the pop-down box could let you rate someone's post on a scale of 1-10 for each of the 9 intelligence types and the system could then provide a weighted average for the amount of repo awarded.

    This whole thing is a fallacy. They've completely missed out number 10.
