Another way to present the 9 types of intelligence as exemplified by my How Do We Measure Intelligence post.
The basic idea is that different people are good at different things. These 9 probably don’t cover the wide range of smarts we all possess, but it’s a start.
As Albert Einstein said, ”Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
I’m glad to finally see a post like this formally with quick examples. These types of intelligence are the reason why your school grades and IQ are poor indicators of your actual intelligence. IQ and test scores usually only measure 2-3 of these lines of thought (usually logical-mathematical and linguistic).

We are always told to use body language in our writing. Sometimes, it’s easier said than written. I decided to create these cheat sheets to help you show a character’s state of mind. Obviously, a character may exhibit a number of these behaviours. For example, he may be shocked and angry, or shocked and happy. Use these combinations as needed.
This is what I did today. ”Finished” illustration of a water moccasin for the Phinizy Swamp Floodplains sign. Trying to get some real progress on this, so hopefully I’ll churn through some more of these soon. Scaley animals take a while, though!
some people don’t physically express emotions very well!
this means they look serious a lot of the time/don’t smile much!
it does not mean:
- they don’t like you
- they aren’t happy
- they are depressed
- something is “wrong” with them
please don’t mock them for it or insist that they “NEED TO SMILE!!!” or assume that they must be mad at you!!
we’re perfectly fine we just don’t look like it!! stop making fun of us!! thank you!!!!!!!
Decided to let these go

What Happened To The Native People? Post Civil War Genocide
“If the white men take my country, where can I go?” -Sitting Bull
After the Civil War, thousands of Americans poured into the Great Plains on a collision course with western Indian tribes. Homesteaders, ranchers, and miners encroached on Indian lands and threatened native game and ways of life. They called on the U.S. Army to crush Indian resistance and confine tribes to government-controlled reservations.
In the decades following the Civil War, the U.S. Army fought dozens of engagements with Indians in the West. At the beginning of the Civil War the Native Americans were still in possession of one half of the current United States territory. 10 years later the Native Americans were placed on reservations and it was government policy to get rid of the Native American culture in favor of having the Native Americans integrated into the American society.
The Native American population was decimated, How did such a population reduction occur?
Two things happened:
- All surviving Native People were forced to live in reservations by the end of the Nineteenth Century
- The buffalo herds were all but wiped out thus severely hindering the natural living patterns of the Native People
The impact of these can be seen in the following :
- 1840-Estimated number of Native People 500,000
- Estimated number of Bison 13,000,000
- 1885 Estimated number of Native People 270,000
- Estimated number of bison 200
