IQ and the 8 Creative Intelligences


Creative intelligence is a dimension of the IQ of human intelligence that enables your capacity for knowing and learning. It’s stimulated through the process and application of innate and learned abilities. Becoming aware of your internal processes will help you nurture your abilities and open your mind.

You are a unique blend of all of the creative intelligences, but one or more will be dominant. The dominant traits are the ones you use the most that you’re most comfortable with and that come naturally to you.

If your creative flow has dammed up pick one or two activities that are out of your comfort zone but still appeal to you. Pick ones that you’ve thought about trying before but didn’t because they weren’t “you”. You may enjoy the new activities and may even meet some new friends along the way. Learning new things will not only expand your knowledge but help build new neural pathways as well.

Social/Interpersonal Intelligence gives you the ability to work well with others, build rapport quickly and possess a keen self insight. People skills, sensitivity to others needs, motives and feelings come naturally to you. People feel at ease around you and seek you out for advice.

Musical Intelligence gives you the ability to appreciate musical patterns, play an instrument or compose music. You’re sensitive to changes in pitch, tone, and rhythm. Rhythm and music move you. Remembering songs and melodies help you learn and come easy to you.

Visual/Spatial Intelligence gives you the ability to recognize, interpret and use images and patterns and reproduce those 3 dimensionally. You’re adept at abstract and analytical thinking and have a vivid imagination. You can show how thoughts are structured by interpreting color, design, shapes and patterns to help make sense of your environment.

Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence gives you the ability to use your body to express yourself. You use your dexterity, balance, flexibility, and physical coordination in unique ways to express your ideas and opinions. Your intelligence and physical coordination also help you to master problems.

Logical/Mathematical Intelligence gives you the ability to think analyze problems logically and complete complex mathematical operations with ease. You categorize things and are a rational and symbolic thinker. Finding patterns, deductive and inductive reasoning are second nature to you. You use logic to solve critical and creative problems.

Intrapersonal Intelligence gives you the ability to understand, interpret and appreciate your feelings and motivations. You’re self reflective, intuitive and may be introverted. Your inner awareness helps you interpret the meaning, significance and purpose of your environment and experiences. You often possess creative wisdom and insight and are inwardly motivated not needing external rewards to keep you on track.

Verbal/Linguistic Intelligence gives you an above average ability to express yourself in written, oral and non-verbal ways. The arrangement, meaning and sound of words are important to you. The meter, flow, pacing and sentence structure are important to you. You love reading, writing and learning new languages.

Naturalistic Intelligence gives you the ability to recognize, be in tune with and appreciate your surroundings. Learning about other species, plants, animals and maybe even bugs are important to you. You’re acutely aware of and are sensitive to the most subtle changes in your environment. You prefer the outdoors and hand hands-on activities like gardening, hiking, bird watching or collecting sand dollars from the beach.

All the intelligences are important. Learning which ones you display most is an important step in self discovery. It will also help you gain new avenues of understanding and provide a path of exploration, if you choose. Knowing how the other intelligences manifest in those around you will help you see outside the box and appreciate the different skills and abilities that each of us possess.
