Intrapersonal or Self Smart

Intrapersonal Intelligence or Self Smart


If you like to journal and write stories about your life and your experiences,

If you like to spend time in reflection and like to think through a problem before talking about it,

If you understand your own strengths and weaknesses, like to set goals for your self, and are sensitive to your feelings and emotions,

You are self smart.


Self smart people are comfortable with themselves and are knowledgeable about their strengths and weaknesses because they do self-reflection. They may like to be by themselves to think through a problem. They may daydream about their future, keep goals both short-term and long-term to accomplish, and try to do things to grow as a person. Self smart people may exercise, eat healthy, and/or meditate. They may also have strong opinions about things and may do their own thing when it comes to dress and personal behavior. 


Self smart kids might grow up to be actors, comedians, artists, therapists, writers, professors, religious leaders, politicians or some other type of leader like a CEO or activist.
