If you thought that intelligence is a one-term word, then you're probably not quite familiar with the nine types of intelligence according to the American psychologist, Howard Gardener. We people are all unique creatures with completely different combinations of all of these nine intelligence types. Being a mathematical genius does not necessarily mean that you can rock the guitar like Jim Hendrix. Unless, of course, you put a lot of hard work into it and get really good at it. But “hard work beats talent” is a completely different matter, so we better leave it for some other time.
Although being complimented as an intelligent person or genius can be very pleasing, at the same time, it can be very misleading. It can put you under a lot of pressure to exceed at everything and when you fail, you'll be mad at yourself, as well as be criticized by others. But let's get it straight: no one can exceed at everything, because no one can have all nine types of intelligence at their finest. Each of us is brilliant in their own way, but did you know that the astrology influences what types of intelligence you posses? According to your zodiac sign, we can help you identify what types of intelligence are your sharpest swords.
Aries: Intra-personal, Interpersonal
The natural born leader is the biggest risk taker of the zodiac, but that's no coincidence. People born under the sign Aries are intuitive and trust their gut to a fault. They are able to recognize their own feelings, they know themselves and their goals very well, which is why every single move they make towards achieving their goal is a worthy one. When you see a risk, Aries sees a possibility. Their consciousness is on a different level than anyone's. They are also good at reading other people's feelings, emotions, motives and behaviors.
Taurus: Bodily-kinesthetic, Interpersonal
People born under the Bull sign are body smart before all. Taurians are known for their physical stamina and power, and that makes them ideal fit for various sports, including roll in the hay. Moving and positioning their body without much thought is what they do best. Another intelligence that exceeds at Taurians is the inter-personal intelligence, as they are incredibly compassionate and emphatic people who genuinely care about others.
Gemini: Linguistic, Logical-mathematical
Geminis are known for many things. First of all, they are social people who are skilled at expressing themselves loud and clear, so their greatest type of intelligence is linguistic. They are known as complex and indecisive individuals, but not when it comes to communication for sure. Many Geminis with this intelligence love writing, reading, sharing life experiences and even doing crossroad puzzles. Also, Geminis are good with numbers, problem solving, deduction and logical challenges, so their logical-mathematical intelligence is also among their sharpest.
Cancer: Naturalist, Intra-personal
The most nurturing people of the zodiac who love taking care of others, especially their loved ones, posses naturalist intelligence more than any other sign of the zodiac. Compassionate, protective and caring towards everything on this Earth, Cancerians' care does not end with people. They love the nature and have a natural intellect for animals and plants, as they simply have a knack for raising animals and making plants grow. Also, Cancerians are always in tune with their inner selves, as they understand themselves, their feelings and their needs very well.
Leo: Musical, Linguistic
The creative Leos are highly adaptive and broad minded individuals, which means they can basically accomplish whatever they put their mind to. Due to these qualities, Leos' musical intelligence exceeds all other types, as they are crucial building blocks of understanding and creating music. They can naturally memorize melodies, rhythms and tunes, which is why they make amazing composers and musicians. Also, the confident and brave Leos know always how to express themselves clearly, as their linguistic intelligence is right on point.
Virgo: Logical-mathematical, Intra-personal
The detective of the zodiac is of course best at logical and mathematical challenges, puzzles and tasks. Thanks to their patience, analytical, deduction and observation skills, Virgos' logical/mathematical intelligence is at a level that is impossible to be matched by other zodiac sign. These practical geniuses can quickly come up with hypothesis and prove them correct. But they are also incredibly self-aware and have a common sense. When you need to call someone help you out win the million in the TV show “Who wants to be a millionaire”, don't think twice and call a Virgo; they are trivia kings.
