What Kind of Smart Are You?

woman reading

Do you feel smart? I sometimes do… when I solve a tough programming problem or write a clever email. It’s great to feel smart, but to be honest, it takes a lot of feeling dumb to get there sometimes. I guess that’s what the process of learning is all about. Most times I don’t feel smart, which is okay too πŸ™‚

I think learning is hard, especially when we are done with school. As an adult, I sometimes struggle to learn outside of the classroom. It’s a lot easier to get stuck or to give up, but I suppose pushing myself is part of the challenge. I still haven’t mastered Mandarin or video game programming yet, so I spend a lot more time feeling not smart than smart these days.

No matter how smart or not smart you’re feeling today, I know there is something that makes you smart. I love to think about unique gifts and talents, especially when I’m having trouble with something I’m not so gifted at. It’s easy to focus what we’re not good (or smart) at, so today I’m focusing on how we are all smart in our own ways. I hope this quiz is as empowering for you to take as it was for me to write πŸ™‚

I bet that there’s at least one arena in life that makes you feel smart, and that’s what today’s quiz is all about:Β What Kind of Smart Are You?Β Let me know what you get, and if you think it reflects your smarts! Are there multiple outcomes that fit you on the quiz?

    Word Smart as expected haha. I love reading and writing. I feel smart anytime someone wonders how I can write extremely well for my age. I also feel smart when I use words and people don’t understand what they mean. Usually when that happens I stare at them for a second because I forget that other people don’t read books everyday. Then again I don’t use much social media like most teenagers. I also tend to ramble when I write as demonstrated in this post already. XD

    You Are Picture Smart

    You are a highly visual person, and you are very keyed in to all the images around you.
    You see beauty where others see dullness. You have a cool perspective on the world that is brighter and bolder.

    Besides being artistically inclined, you have good spacial reasoning. You see how things fit together visually.
    You’re the type of person who can think in 3D – whether you’re sculpting, solving a maze, or reading a map.
