Assessing Your Multiple Intelligences

Some thought-provoking articles are lined up for the weeks ahead, and today’s kicks it off!

Multiple intelligence assessment has changed over the years.  Interestingly while other assessments don’t change much over time (like the Myers-Briggs profile), it’s been recognized that multiple intelligence assessments were being used in ways that Howard Gardner never intended: https://www.edutopia.org/article/multiple-intelligences-theory-widely-used-yet-misunderstood

Multiple intelligence assessments can change from time to time, based on what your priorities are at the time you take it.  On the other hand, strength finder assessments can be taken once every few years, but while the results might shift slightly, your top strengths will, more than likely, continue to be your top strengths.

Multiple intelligences, and the percentages at which they are prevalent in your current evaluation can shift based upon the projects you’re involved in at the time you take the test, since all the “intelligences” are present within each person.
