It might be not a hundred percent suitable for your learning style, but maybe we can have a good references from it. Just have it for fun 🙂

According to Gardner’s psychological theory, i am suppose to be an athlete or an actor or a kind of that because i am a kinesthetic. Beside that i also suit to be an environmentalist or a botanist because i am Naturalist. In fact, i am a lecturer, ho..ho..ho.. :))

But, due to i am a moslem, i believe that people not only has that eight intelligences, people also has Spiritual Intelligence, which is the most important intelligences we should have. We live in real world is just for a moment, we will face the day after tomorrow, it is said akhirat in Islam. There are only two choice in akhirat, Hell or heaven. We don’t know which place that we will stay at after the “Judgement Day”. It’s all depend on what we have done when we’re alive in world. It’s our own choice.

Hopefully it gives you a benefit.
