Logical-Mathematical Intelligence or Logic Smarts


If you like to work with numbers and large mathematical problems,

If you like to do puzzles and break codes, and adapt or create recipes,

If you like to do science experiments and propose and solve hypotheses,

If you like to work with patterns, figure out brainteasers, and work with graphs and tables and maps and geometry,

You are logic smart.


People who are logic smart enjoy math, science, and logical thinking. They like to work with numbers and codes and puzzles. They enjoy critical thinking and solving complex programs. Schools are also very good in presenting information in ways that logic smart kids understand.


Kids who are logic smart might grow up to be accountants, scientists, cooks, engineers, computer programmers, lawyers, chemists, astronauts, bankers, technical writers, meteorologists, engineers.
