Thinker quiz, a balanced result

Thinker quiz, apparently I test out as Renaissancely balanced.

Some people have a strong preference for one style of thinking, and find some skills come more naturally than others. Other people tend to adopt different thinking styles in different situations.

This test gives you an idea of what your current thinking style or styles are. But remember - the brain is a very adaptive organ. You should be able to improve your performance in any one of these categories with practice.

The Renaissance ideal

The leading thinkers of the Renaissance were not just experts in their own field. The renaissance scholar was expected to master all branches of knowledge.

With his insatiable desire to know everything, Leonardo da Vinci is often held up as the ideal Renaissance man.

You are an Interpersonal Thinker

Like interpersonal thinkers, Leonardo had lots of friends and contacts, and was a popular figure at the Italian court.

Interpersonal thinkers:

* Like to think about other people, and try to understand them

* Recognise differences between individuals and appreciate that different people have different perspectives

* Make an effort to cultivate effective relationships with family, friends and colleagues

Other Interpersonal thinkers include

Winston Churchill, Mother Teresa, William Shakespeare

Careers which suit Interpersonal thinkers include

Politician, Psychologist, Nurse, Counsellor, Teacher

You are an Intrapersonal thinker

Like intrapersonal thinkers, Leonardo worked hard to improve all aspects of himself.

Intrapersonal thinkers:

* Spend a lot of time thinking about and trying to understand themselves

* Reflect on their thoughts and moods, and work to improve them

* You understand how your behaviour affects your relationships with others

Other Intrapersonal thinkers include

Sigmund Freud, Gandhi, Grahame Greene

Careers which suit Intrapersonal Thinkers include

Psychologist, Teacher, Pilot, Child care worker, Explorer, Drama therapist
