In What Ways Do I Learn Best?
My top two intelligences are Bodily Kinesthetic and Logical-Mathematical. When I use the Logical-Mathematical intelligence, I recognize patterns and work well with numbers. In a class like geometry, I use this intelligence to perform calculations and find logical relations between things to prove something. For example, when I am doing proofs, I am able to use logical reasoning and find utilize certain knowledge we learned such as theorems, to prove something. When I use Bodily Kinesthetic Intelligence, I am more likely to use physical motions to to learn. I use my body and my sense of touch to learn more about the world. I particularly love sports and many other physical activities. For example, I mainly play tennis and swim. Those are sports I am particularly good at. I consider myself athletic even though I have a small frame. In addition, in class, I can't stay still for too long. Then, I will feel uncomfortable and I have to move around. I also like doing hands on projects. In science, I love doing experiments and completing labs. I think they are fun and the best way to learn for me.
The intelligence I have the most trouble with is Musical intelligence. For some reason, I just can't understand the notes and rhythm in Music. I just don't get what each notes represent. For homework we had to write a poem and assign a rhythm with notes accompanying it. I found that hard because I didn't get where to put the whole, quarter, eighth, and rests notes. I was so confused. I especially can't perform or do work best with music playing in the background. I just can't concentrate! It disrupts my learning experience. I require total peace and quiet to concentrate on my work. I usually can't do some work in school so I bring it home where I know I will find find peace and quiet.
