Predominantly Linguistic

Linguistic intelligence involves sensitivity to spoken and written language, the ability to learn languages, and the capacity to use language to accomplish certain goals. This intelligence includes the ability to effectively use language to express oneself rhetorically or poetically; and language as a means to remember information. Writers, poets, lawyers and speakers are among those that Howard Gardner sees as having high linguistic intelligence.

Your sensitivity to the meaning and order of words, whether you are speaking, writing or studying the structure of language itself, is very strong. You may pick up languages quickly or enjoy studying the meaning and roots of words.

Careers which suit those with this intelligence include writers, lawyers, philosophers, journalists, politicians and teachers.
