dalek, exterminate

I tried...

I really did. I watched the whole episode of Knight Rider. Okay, well, not all of it. Um, um, er, at one point I realized, oh I have to wash the dinner dishes, so yes, I ditched Kitt for dirty dishes. Whoa.... and it's probably a name name of some sort, but the voice for Kitt just puts me to sleep. Such a drab monotone as though some is narrating a boring book and falling asleep themselves. Alas, the plot was dull, the acting so-so, and well, unless a guest star I really want to see shows up, this show is off my roster of watching....
McKay-this is cool

Quiz: Intelligence Test

Snerched from sgflutegirl- ah, another five minutes wasted, but I love the result ;)

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test...

Naturalistic

37% Logical, 20% Spatial, 49% Linguistic, 29% Intrapersonal, 8% Interpersonal, 20% Musical, 20% Bodily-Kinesthetic and 57% Naturalistic!

"This area has to do with nature, nurturing and relating information to one's natural surroundings. Those with it are said to have greater sensitivity to nature and their place within it, the ability to nurture and grow things, and greater ease in caring for, taming and interacting with animals. They may also be able to discern changes in weather or similar fluctuations in their natural surroundings. They are also good at recognizing and classifying different species.


'Naturalists' learn best when the subject involves collecting and analyzing, or is closely related to something prominent in nature; they also don't enjoy learning unfamiliar or seemingly useless subjects with little or no connections to nature. It is advised that naturalistic learners would learn more through being outside or in a kinesthetic way.


Careers which suit those with this intelligence include scientists, naturalists, conservationists, gardeners and farmers." (Wikipedia)
