Spatial

According to this test, I'm a Spatial Thinker:

Spatial Thinkers:

* Tend to think in pictures, and can develop good mental models of the physical world.
* Think well in three dimensions
* Have a flair for working with objects

Other Spatial Thinkers include Pablo Picasso, Michelangelo, Isambard Kingdom Brunel

Like other spatial thinkers, Leonardo had a talent for designing buildings and machinery. He also invented a new style of map making

Careers which suit Spatial Thinkers include
Mechanic, Photographer, Artist, Architect, Engineer, Builder, Set designer

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.

A hearty AVAST! to Mickey for the link.

Ooh, I'm a "Linguistic Thinker." I tend to think in text. Yup, that's pretty much me.

I was thinking mine was fairly right on as I do think in pictures a lot. I always thought I'd make a great starship navigator :)

I'm an "Existential Thinker"? Maybe that works: I do find, to my continuing surprise, that other lawyers often miss the big picture, but that doesn't mean I can't see details either. I mean, anyone who knows me knows I'm pedantic well past the point of obnoxious. ;-)

Weird - I got 2 answers: Linguistic was the first and Spatial the second. In the jobs for linguistic was librarian, which is what I am.

Strangely, I got Interpersonal. And as I started the test, I knew I had taken it way back so I have a result from months ago on the BlogSplat blog. I wonder if it's the same...
