Profiling 101

Over the weekend, I had to create an academic profile for myself using data gleaned from a series of questionnaires. One was called the GREGORC inventory, which I had never heard of before. Another was regarding Gardiner's multiple intelligences, which I had heard of before. The rest were short answer questions about learning styles and preferences.

I scored comfortable to very comfortable on 6 out of the 8 intelligences. I just missed Bodily-Kinesthetic, but I am very deficient in IntraPersonal. Evidently, I don't care very much about people's feelings. On the GREGORC, I came up Abstract Sequential, which means I value thinking and analysis above all else.

Surprisingly, I found the learning styles sheet the most telling. It consisted of a flowchart of sorts, which laid out all the different learning environments. (noisy, quiet, visual, aural, etc.) I feel quite comfortable with any and all environments save for one- Kinesthetic Mobility Tactile. That category includes such horrors as role playing, mime, and immersion. You can put me in a dark, loud, hot room and I can still concentrate, but five minutes of mime and I'm contemplating murder-suicide.

Well, that's me in a nutshell. (How did I get in this nutshell?)

Correction - You only care very much about some people's feelings.

We know you aren't cold and heartless through and through.
