Your Assessment

 Innate Intelligences

  • The cerebral cortex is divided into 4 main sections known as lobes.
    • The Frontal Lobe (Prefrontal and Postfrontal) is used to make decisions. It is also where our dominant personality is formed.
    • The Parietal Lobe processes sensory information, such as taste, visual perception and recognition, temperature and touch.
    • The Temporal Lobe processes auditory information and interprets the sound and language that we hear.
    • The Occipital Lobe is the main visual processing centre of the brain and processes the information that our eyes are sending.
  • Our 10 innate intelligences are linked to the functions of the cerebral cortex and the DNAg2 assessment provides a graphical representation highlighting which of your 10 innate intelligences are stronger, and which areas you need to develop further to achieve improved results.
  • The 10 innate intelligences are:
    • Managing Skills – planning, organising, coordination, communication
    • Leadership Skills – motivational, visionary, goal-oriented
    • Reasoning Skills – analytical, numerical, linguistic
    • Visualizing Skills – idea formation, creative conceptualisation
    • Controlling Skills – fine motor skills
    • Rhythmic skills – gross motor skills
    • Verbal skills – language understanding, expressing technique
    • Musical Skills – music appreciation, sense of music
    • Differentiation Skills – interpretation, detailed observation
    • Imaging Skills – visual appreciation, aesthetic sense

Multiple Intelligences

  • In the 1980’s, Dr. Howard Gardner proposed the ‘Theory of Multiple Intelligences’ as a model of intelligence that differentiates intelligence into various modalities rather than viewing it as a single general ability.
  • The DNAg2 assessment provides a detailed analysis of your 8 multiple intelligences, with a ranking for each and an action plan for development areas.
  • The 8 multiple intelligences are:
    • Interpersonal – interaction with others, typically work best by working with others and often enjoy discussion and debate
    • Intrapersonal – deep understanding of yourself, generally prefer to work independently
    • Bodily / Kinaesthetic – learn better by involving muscular movement, generally good at physical activities such as sports and dancing. Learn best through physical movement
    • Mathematical / Logical – reasoning capabilities, recognizing abstract patterns, scientific thinking, investigation and the ability to perform complex calculations
    • Verbal / Linguistic – ability to learn foreign languages very easily, an aptitude to understand and manipulate syntax and structure
    • Musical / Rhythmic – able to sing well, play musical instruments and / or compose music. Sometimes use songs or rhythms to learn.
    • Visual / Spatial – good at visualising and mentally manipulating objects. Strong visual memory and often artistically inclined.
    • Naturalistic / Environmentalism – nurturing and relating information to natural surroundings.
