From rparvaaz who is linguistic:
Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...
18% Logical, 29% Spatial, 41% Linguistic, 53% Intrapersonal, 18% Interpersonal, 18% Musical, 14% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 49% Naturalistic!
"This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. Those who are strongest in this intelligence are typically introverts and prefer to work alone. They are usually highly self-aware and capable of understanding their own emotions, goals and motivations. They often have an affinity for thought-based pursuits such as philosophy. They learn best when allowed to concentrate on the subject by themselves. There is often a high level of perfectionism associated with this intelligence.
Careers which suit those with this intelligence include philosophers, psychologists, theologians, writers and scientists." (Wikipedia)

Well, I am neither introvert nor particularly good with detail. However I do like to drink wine and look worried.
One time I did the test I got naturalistic, and as I read it I thought 'ah, this is maia to a T' (ed - though now I reread it you aren't someone who dislikes learning about subjects - quite the reverse).

thanks for the link - I did get that result :-/ (that's my existential face)
I got the same answer, which suggests to me that eight may be an underestimate. I had 59% intrapersonal to 51% linguistic.
Have they learned nothing from Myers Briggs - all people can be classified into 16 groups. Beyond that is chaos.
This is why these tests are so interesting. I had no idea that you were kinaesthetic, I would have probably guessed logical (which I suppose includes numerical)
