This is *very* accurate, I think. I was pleased as punch that the quiz included as separate questions:
I can read maps easily and accurately.
and
I can accurately estimate distances and other measurements.
because I’m HORRID at the first and quite good at the second, and often they get lumped together in tests, making it difficult for me to chose an answer in good faith.
There should have been an “I’m able to code PHP and HTML in a cross platform way that doesn’t cut the ends off of log ques”

Y’know, I took this one and got five 75% scores and two 71% scores. Which may be accurate. Basically pretty good at anything, no clue where my real “calling” lies. Mom fits that as well as anything, I guess! Oh, and I’m slightly annoyed that in order to give me a lengthy description and a cute graphic, they took one key characteristic from each of my five 75% categories and asked me to pick the one which was “most true.” Not too surprisingly, they all seemed pretty equal. Duh! No pretty category for that. Or for me. Which may be the point.

Re: Logical/Mathematical 43%
Indeed, I did. I think there are three things to consider that might explain how I could attend S&M (and love it) whilst seeming to be a strong “verbal”:
1) The Multiple Intelligences theory is “based on the belief that we all possess at least eight unique intelligences through which we are able to learn/teach new information”. IOW, it has to do with *learning styles* not content. I can learn math just as well as the next guy, but I’ll learn it more easily if I *hear* a lecture versus reading a book or getting a bunch of graphs to puzzle ver.
The MI is often used in education curricula to help teachers understand why they need to vary their teaching methods in order to help a wider variety of students understand.
2)The percentages are relative to each other, not to the universe. IOW, although I only scored a 43% logical/mathematical, that doesn’t mean that my 43% logical/mathematical isn’t more mathematically ept than someone else who may have scored 75% logical/mathematical, but, perhaps isn’t as bright or applied as I.
3) S&M wasn’t about the S and the M, really (there’s a longer explanation there, but for now that’ll do).

Thanks for the longer MI ‘splain. And oops — I forgot to sign. This is Phil ;) And that’s me with the next comment, too, about my own rankings.
xo,

ROTFLOL. I guess you know all about the S&M not being so much about the S and M then — tee hee.
W/out context I thought I was being slammed. I ought to have known better. Let’s call it hormones and leave it at that.
We need to have dinner sometime soon :)

logic/math was also my lowest score; verbal/linguistic also my highest.
