Quiz: What kind of mind do you have?

Here's a quiz for a Friday: Find out the way you think, and what kind of mind you have in a BBC quiz here. Say the BBC, the "quiz is intended to be a fun way to learn about different thinking styles. It can provide you with some interesting information about your preferred ways of creative thinking and problem solving."

Apparently I'm a 'spatial thinker' in the company of Michelangelo and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, so clearly an accurate quiz then :-) Mike, Izzy and myself:
  • Tend to think in pictures, and can develop good mental models of the physical world.
  • Think well in three dimensions
  • Have a flair for working with objects
The quiz also concludes that I'd make a good architect -- fortunate really. Or a mechanic. My car wouldn't agree.


  1. Well, bugger me. I came out as an existential thinker. People often tell me I'm just like the Buddha and Gandhi so there's a coincidence.
    In a fairly unlikely call, the quiz suggested I become a religious leader or, much better, Head of State!

    Apparently I am a logical-mathematical thinker. It suggests I'd make a good Biologist - spooky.

    Then in a random call the quiz suggested that I am also a musical thinker and suggested that I could the next Jimi Hendrix...

  3. I'm an Existentialist Thinker as well.

  5. "I'm an Existentialist Thinker as well."

    Bloody daydreamers. :-)

  6. I'm an intrapersonal thinker. Good for psychology.

  7. What kind of mind do you have? Evidently thinking styles run in the family. I'm a spatial thinker too. Although I prefer the assessment of Tickle ( )
    where I came out as a Visionary Philosopher.
    Highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, your exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explainging things to others - and at anticipating and presicting patterns.
