The Nine Types of Intelligence


1. Naturalist Intelligence (“Nature Smart”)
Designates the human ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) as well as sensitivity to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations).  This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef.  It is also speculated that much of our consumer society exploits the naturalist intelligences, which can be mobilized in the discrimination among cars, sneakers, kinds of makeup, and the like.
2. Musical Intelligence (“Musical Smart”)
Musical intelligence is the capacity to discern pitch, rhythm, timbre, and tone.  This intelligence enables us to recognize, create, reproduce, and reflect on music, as demonstrated by composers, conductors, musicians, vocalist, and sensitive listeners. Interestingly, there is often an affective connection between music and the emotions; and mathematical and musical intelligences may share common thinking processes.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence are usually singing or drumming to themselves.  They are usually quite aware of sounds others may miss.
3. Logical-Mathematical Intelligence (Number/Reasoning Smart)
Logical-mathematical intelligence is the ability to calculate, quantify, consider propositions and hypotheses, and carry out complete mathematical operations.  It enables us to perceive relationships and connections and to use abstract, symbolic thought; sequential reasoning skills; and inductive and deductive thinking patterns.  Logical intelligence is usually well developed in mathematicians, scientists, and detectives.  Young adults with lots of logical intelligence are interested in patterns, categories, and relationships.  They are drawn to arithmetic problems, strategy games and experiments.
4.Existential Intelligence
Sensitivity and capacity to tackle deep questions about human existence, such as the meaning of life, why do we die, and how did we get here.
5. Interpersonal Intelligence (People Smart”)
Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand and interact effectively with others.  It involves effective verbal and nonverbal communication, the ability to note distinctions among others, sensitivity to the moods and temperaments of others, and the ability to entertain multiple perspectives.  Teachers, social workers, actors, and politicians all exhibit interpersonal intelligence.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence are leaders among their peers, are good at communicating, and seem to understand others’ feelings and motives.
6. Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence (“Body Smart”)
Bodily kinesthetic intelligence is the capacity to manipulate objects and use a variety of physical skills.  This intelligence also involves a sense of timing and the perfection of skills through mind–body union.  Athletes, dancers, surgeons, and craftspeople exhibit well-developed bodily kinesthetic intelligence.
7. Linguistic Intelligence (Word Smart)
Linguistic intelligence is the ability to think in words and to use language to express and appreciate complex meanings.  Linguistic intelligence allows us to understand the order and meaning of words and to apply meta-linguistic skills to reflect on our use of language. Linguistic intelligence is the most widely shared human competence and is evident in poets, novelists, journalists, and effective public speakers.  Young adults with this kind of intelligence enjoy writing, reading, telling stories or doing crossword puzzles.
8. Intra-personal Intelligence (Self Smart”)
Intra-personal intelligence is the capacity to understand oneself and one’s thoughts and feelings, and to use such knowledge in planning and directioning one’s life.  Intra-personal intelligence involves not only an appreciation of the self, but also of the human condition.  It is evident in psychologist, spiritual leaders, and philosophers.  These young adults may be shy. They are very aware of their own feelings and are self-motivated.
9. Spatial Intelligence (“Picture Smart”)
Spatial intelligence is the ability to think in three dimensions.  Core capacities include mental imagery, spatial reasoning, image manipulation, graphic and artistic skills, and an active imagination.  Sailors, pilots, sculptors, painters, and architects all exhibit spatial intelligence. Young adults with this kind of intelligence may be fascinated with mazes or jigsaw puzzles, or spend free time drawing or daydreaming.

When keeping it real goes wrong


Okay. I'm about to drop a really QUESTIONABLE music video. But honestly. I QUESTION people sometimes. I didn't plan it this way but I'm wondering certain things about supposed "truths" I am finding out about "friends".



The truth is age does perhaps change your priorities. Sometimes "questionable" conditions makes you super weird. And sometimes amazing conditions make you rad. The point is, it's those uncomfortable conditions that show the world who you are. So go fuck yourself don't get too comfortable.

The new unemployed life has me catching up on errands I've put off for years, making root beer floats at home, and watching a marathon of old school Eddie Murphy movies.

Irma Thomas' "It's Raining" in Down By Law.


I still have these VHS tapes at my mom's house. One of the many reasons why I magnetized to NY in my younger years. How can you watch this video and NOT want to skate and move to New York??


Duh! Iron Claw Skates "Faux One One". It's all about homies doing their thing- stoked to support Iron Claw! Lou's Williamsburg Monument spot check- epic narrative. Billy Rohan's nollie hardflip at the supreme court spot cameo.



Thanks to Manute for sharing this link.

Irma Thomas' 1964 cover of "Time Is On My Side".


Incase anyone was wondering this might be the new theme song to my post-quit-your-job-and-keep-it-moving life. New life, new attitude!

I'm feelin' good from my head to my shoes
Know where I'm goin' and I know what to do
I tidied up my point of view
I got a new attitude

Runnin' hot, runnin' cold
I was runnin' into overload
It was extreme, ex-ex-ex-ex-ex-extreme
It took it so high, so low
So low, there was nowhere to go
Like a dream

Somehow the wires uncrossed, the tables were turned
Never knew I had such a lesson to learn

I'm feelin' good from my head to my shoes
Know where I'm goin' and I know what to do
I tidied up my point of view
I got a new attitude

I'm in control, my worries are few
'Cause I've got love like I never knew
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I got a new attitude

I'm wearing a new dress (New), new hair (New)
Brand new ideas, as a matter of fact I've changed for good
It must have been the cool night, new moon, new slight change
More than the figure but I feel like I should, yes

Somehow the wires uncrossed, the tables were turned
Never knew I had such a lesson to learn

I'm feelin' good from my head to my shoes
Know where I'm goin' and I know what to do
I tidied up my point of view
I got a new attitude

I'm in control, my worries are few
'Cause I've got love like I never knew
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I got a new attitude

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ooh

Somehow the wires uncrossed, the tables were turned
Never knew I had such a lesson to learn

I'm feelin' good from my head to my shoes
Know where I'm goin' and I know what to do
I tidied up my point of view
I got a new attitude

I'm in control, my worries are few
'Cause I've got love like I never knew
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I got a new attitude

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I got a new attitude

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I got a new attitude

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I got a new attitude

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Mmm)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Mmm, mmm)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I got a new attitude

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (From my head to my shoes)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (I got a new)
I got a new attitude (I got a new)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (New attitude)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Everything about has changed)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Baby)
I got a new attitude (I got a new)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (I got a new)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Feelin', feelin')
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (I feel it, I got a new attitude)
I got a new attitude

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Oh ooh)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I got a new attitude (I got a new)

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Attitude)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (Said I got a new)
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh (New attitude)
I got a new attitude

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
