See handout. Take M.I. inventory.There are ten responses, consider each as it either applies to you or not.4-6 responses is considered average.Once you have completed the inventory, make a bar graph of your results. See attached graph. If you are “sensitive to color” you may want to make a colorful bar graph Have fun learning more about yourself.
Put your profile in your journal, it is a required element!
Multiple Intelligence Case Study:Spatial/Visual Intelligence
This intelligence deals with the sense of sight and being able to visualize an object and create internal mental images/pictures such as…
Factors effecting your Spatial/Visual imagery intelligence
So how do we measure our abilities in these areas?Not just one test.We will look at visual spatial intelligence and demonstrate how we can get some idea as to our ability in this intelligence.

Do you see any relationship between E.Q. and being an positive/optimisticperson?Why do you think that people with high E.Q.’s are generally “moresuccessful” than people with just high I.Q.’s?What about those people who seem to have both a high E.Q. and high I.Q.?
Howard Gardner identifies areas of intelligence.

Which of the seven intelligences might be usedin an I.Q. test or I.Q. equivalency test?Which of the nine might be used to determinea person’s e.q.?

Review your M.I.profile.Note the score andlook at yourresponse.Spatial/VisualIntelligence is reallya collection ofabilities and skillsthat deal with theability to formmental images andmanipulate them.
