Intelligence type quiz

Your Dominant Intelligence is Linguistic Intelligence

You are excellent with words and language. You explain yourself well.

An elegant speaker, you can converse well with anyone on the fly.

You are also good at remembering information and convincing someone of your point of view.

A master of creative phrasing and unique words, you enjoy expanding your vocabulary.

You would make a fantastic poet, journalist, writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, or translator.

This meme needs ticky boxes, not radio buttons. Because I think in both pictures and in words, I write AND do visual arts.

Got the same result you did, but a better one would have had options for mixed intelligence, and would have given me Visual/linguistic.

In fact, if I'm having trouble understanding something someone's saying, I can visualize the words for a clearer idea. Though that doesn't always work; sometimes even seeing the words on the screen or paper don't clear things up at all.

Writer's Block: Do you remember?

What is your earliest memory?
Funny story about that. I have a perfect 3D model in my visual memory of the area my grandmother lived in when we lived with her in Rockwell City, Iowa back when I was 6. The upstairs of her house, too, because I slept up there. The rest of the house is a blur, though. But what's weird is, as detailed as this visual record is, we were only there one summer. The place we lived at for years just prior to that, Beaver City Nebraska: nothing. We'd lived there just a couple days before moving to Grandma's, lived there for years, and only lived at Grandma's for a couple months, but I have absolutely NO true memories from Beaver City. I have perfect 3D maps in my head of every place I've ever lived from Grandma's on to modern day, but of Beaver City there are absolutely no memories at all.

My earliest *specific* memory is of walking through the trees that led from Grandma's to the farm behind her house.
