Kinesthetic X
Verbal X
Intrapersonal X
Visual X


I'm also intersted in looking at what my twins' strengths might be. I have ideas, of course, but this would be a little more systematic.

Anywho, you might want to take the inventory.

Beyond that, I've created a little spreadsheet that'll produce a pie graph based on your scores. Here's mine:

If you get that into it, email me for the file.
