Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligences are a common topic in my education courses. Numerous times, I have taken online tests to discover my intelligence. The only thing consistent about my results is that they are not consistent. Sometimes I am musical, humming and tapping my fingers while sitting in class. At other times, I am visual, choosing to only look at the “image” results of a Google search. Yet, I tend to be kinesthetic; I almost always pace or stand when I study. Nonetheless, we all know that I am intrapersonal, choosing to sit silently in a coffee shop and type blog posts while other college students debate around me. Occasionally, I am a logical/mathematical learner; I like to group things in sets of ten and examine how percentages relate to each other.
Perhaps my conflicting intelligences are the reason I could never decide on a single topic for this blog.
In honor of World Statistics Day, here are ten random statistics about my “9 lives.”
- I have been to 22 of our nation’s states (My Adventurous Life).
- I took, on average, over 400 pictures a day in June 2015 (My Artsy Life).
- Over half (about 57%) of my pumps are Fergalicious brand (My Fashionable Life).
- I use Walmart’s Savings Catcher after 100% of my visits to Walmart (My Frugal Life).
- I eat oatmeal approximately 9 out of 10 days and sometimes more than once a day (My Healthy Life).
- The thing I lose most often is sleep. Patience is second on the list (My Organized Life).
- I am among the 23% of full-time undergrad students under the age of 24 who work 20 hours or more a week (My Scholarly Life).
- According to Facebook, I have 565 friends (My Social Life).
- My relationship with God has nothing to do with the number of times I pray, go to church, or read my Bible (My Spiritual Life)
- I can only complete 90% of this top ten list.
