Discover your intellectual strengths
Spatial abilities are the perceptual and cognitive abilities that enable a person to deal with spatial relations, in other words the visualization and orientation of objects in space. Put simply spatial skills assess your ability to manipulate 3D objects by flipping and rotating them. Spatial intelligence questions test raw intelligence without the influence of prior knowledge and as such performance on this scale is indicative of general intelligence. At a first glance, such questions may appear daunting but the trick is not to give up too quickly. Often a second look at the problem will reveal a different approach, and a solution will appear because the brain has been given the opportunity to process information further.
Your spatial score is 65 and you scored in the 59th percentile.
Your Grade ** Average **
Here is a question which contributed to your spatial score:
Sue walks one block north from her house.
Then she walks three blocks south, and then one block west.
How many blocks is she from her house?
People with spatial intelligence like to think in images. Once they have formed an image in their mind they then visually imagine many different results. If you have a lot of spatial intelligence and have an orientation for the arts you are more likely to become a sculptor or an architect. Furthermore, spatial intelligence can be very important in professions which emphasize the manipulation of tangible objects such as engineering and design. It is also useful in everyday activities such as reading a map or fitting things into a box or storage room. Artists, architects, photographers, engineers, decorators, sculptors, pilots, surveyors, inventors, guides and designers usually score highly in this intelligence type.
