Multiple Intelligences

This is a theory that you get beaten with in the teacher credentialing courses. Yes, it's important to appeal to multiple intelligences when teaching. Somehow though, verbal/linguistic seems more at home in an English class while Bodily/Kinesthetic seems more at home in P.E. Still, when learning Shakespeare, I did torture my kids into learning a couple of English country dances because I could use this theory as a nice excuse.

What you may also note is that though my hobby is dancing, my lowest scores are in bodily/kinesthetic. Every dance I learn is a struggle, but I love the feeling of dance so much that it's totally worth it.

  • I scored pretty low in Bodily/Kinesthetic, and I think that the questions are slanted more towards strength athletics than graceful athletics. It takes me quite a lot to learn a dance, but I do learn them pretty well.

  • I wonder how much your kinesthetic rating is biased by your confidence in your abilities more than your ACTUAL abilities. I wouldn't perceive you to be LOW kinesthetic.
