Which type of intelligence do you value the most in your partner/SO?
Okay, so it's pretty accurate to say that most people value intelligence in a partner. Dr. Howard Gardner built a model of eight different intelligence types and generally person can be strong in several areas. BUT, if you had to choose ONE type of intelligence for your partner, what would it be?
(Please note: I'm not actually basing these types from Gardner's theory, I'm kind of meshing & generalizing them)
Linguistic intelligence: A person strong in this area is good with words. They are often good at writing, reading, and talking about things. This group often includes writers, poets, lawyers and public speakers.
Logical-mathematical intelligence: A person strong in this area is good with math and logic problems. They often enjoy solving mysteries, reading about scientific discoveries, and like to figure out how things work. They are also usually good with computers and a variety of other gadgets.
Spatial Intelligence: A person strong in this area is good with pictures and images. They are often good at putting puzzles together. They appreciate art and photography, like to draw or doodle, notice details, prefer geometry over algebra, and are good at directions.
Musical Intelligence: A person strong in this area is good with music and rhythm. They can often read music, remember old songs, notice patterns, and can naturally figure out how to play a tune on an instrument.
I'm not putting an "other" category in the poll because I want you to choose your preference.
Please state which category you best fall into, and what you'd like for your partner.
Personally, I have strengths in each area but my strongest would be linguistic intelligence. Because I can be over analytical and logical, I'd prefer someone who is more spatial/musical. Spatial if I'm forced to choose.
