I got Existential Intelligence. No surprise, I regularly have existential crises. Good thing I'm not an atheist or it would happen even more often.
I both love and hate that I ponder the meaning of everything so much. I want to ponder things and not be ignorant. But at the same time, life would be much easier if you can just turn your brain off and not worry about anything deeper and just accept life as shallow. I have to have a passion or goal in my life at all times or I lose the will to live. Originally that goal for a very, very long time was go to college and graduate. It kept me sane thru 99% of my life. After I graduated, I was truly lost for a few years. What passion would drive me forward now? I had hoped employment would provide drive like some seem to find, but it did not for me. The daily grind was stupid and boring. Returning to figure skating has given me something to passionately strive for again. If I'm not "learning" or "in school", I'm just not happy and don't feel like I'm getting anywhere. So figure skating lessons keeps my overly-analytical-existential-insane-brain very distracted and happy.
I think Aurologist sounds really interesting if its actually based on some factual skills. I don't like Seer because that is an innate gift you have to be born with and its very sketchy. Even true Seers often can't control when/where/how they have their visions of the future. So it's not a lot of use in most cases, or just causes more confusion and trouble than its worth.

The test showed that my intelligence type is Interpersonal Intelligence (People Smart). I agree with the results the test gave me. Everything I have done in my life so far points to someone who has an Interpersonal Intelligence type. I am a teacher who works with children of all abilities and needs, so I need to have effective communication skills (both verbally and non-verbally) to meet the needs of each of my students. The aspects of my intelligence types that I am most comfortable with is the part where it says that I am good at understanding people’s feelings. As a teacher, I feel like I can tell the different feelings my students are portraying on a given day. The jobs listed on the class website are perfect for me. They are all professions that I have done in my life, or they are professions I have thought of doing. I quite enjoyed taking these tests so far in this class. They both have been spot on, and they have described me down to the smallest molecule.

Thanks to my Secret Santa, Zoki, for the awesome signature!!!
