If you answered mostly…
|A’s: You’re artistically creative! You enjoy things like drawing, photography, crafts, sculptures and painting; images are your specialty. Your idea of a good time is going to an art museum or watching a movie. You’re most likely to get in trouble for doodling in class. You’re very likely to take an art class outside of school or be the editor in chief of the school’s yearbook.||B’s: Music is your thing! You’ll stop what you’re saying mid-sentence to sing your favorite song and you can pick up a beat or an instrument much faster than many others. Your favorite time of the day is choir class or your band’s practices in your garage. You probably have a music library that’s almost too big for your computer. Be careful to not blast that music too loud, or you’ll be the first of your friends to need a hearing aid.||C’s: You like logic, puzzles and math! You enjoy thinking about things until you can find a clear formula to them; everything has to add up for you. Many people may think that being logical doesn’t go hand in hand with being creative, but there are activities out there which need both rationality and creativity. People like you can come up with craziest ways to resolve problems without a speck in the plan. You’re the friend people go to in order to get any problem solved. You may have a future as an architect or inventor.|
|D’s: You’re a seasoned word weaver. You’ve got the world’s longest reading list, three books in your purse, and the vocabulary of a linguistics professor. You enjoy words and have an uncanny knack for making them flow together. Keep on reading, the world has an endless reading list waiting for you (surely you already knew about it). You live as the first female novelist, Aphra Behn, once said: “That perfect tranquility of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library.”||E’s: You dance your way into people’s hearts, you make the winning goal at every game, and you’ve managed to break every athletic record your school has ever seen. You’re very helpful as a model in P.E. class, since your body seems to know what to do before your mind even processes it. As if that wasn’t enough, you have the energy of a Duracell battery, making you the life of the party anywhere you go. You express yourself through your body, so you aren’t stuck as the sporty type, you could even be a model.||F’s: You’re a rare person, much like the plants you are so acquainted with. You have the ability to recognize patterns in leaves, flowers, and other aspects of nature that many would not even glance at (meaning you’ll never be one to be struck by poison ivy!). You can distinguish a bear track from a wolf track in an instant, and if told to “take a hike”, you would finish that trail without a problem.|
