"Naturalist Thinkers: Like to understand the natural world, and the living beings that inhabit it... unless there is more to computers than we know..."

Don't the mice spinning the floppy disc count?

Although I'm not going to get nekkid at my computer just so I can fit some profile of being a "Naturist Thinker".

Yeah, but I'm on a small Pacific island without access to a good book store or library. I did, however, love Amazon.com when I was in the US. Probably the online shopping thing ;) I'm a daughter of a reading specialist and an electrical engineer, so both options work for me.

I read alot of fiction when I was little, but now, I have no interest in reading fiction.

I'm an information collector and the internet affords me to find out whatever I'm interested in at the moment.

And the experience and knowledge of Freepers is amazing, not to mention very funny.

So don't feel sad, I've learned more online then I ever did from a book. (not including the Bible)

Same here. I spend a good deal of time driving, so the only fiction I get is an occasional book-on-tape. But even in the car, I'm drawn to information and opinion, so I mostly listen to talk radio and news programs.

And yet I'm trying to write fiction. Go figure.

Musical thinkers:

Tend to think in sounds, and may also think in rhythms and melodies

Are sensitive to the sounds and rhythms of words as well as their meanings.

Feel a strong connection between music and emotions

I'd say this is fairly accurate.

I think alot of people feel that way. Just tonite I was watching the movie "Ice Age" with my grandchild. We started talking about saber toothed tigers and mammoths and before you know we had looked them up online. And to think it only took a moment to find actual pictures of the skull, including those huge teeth. I didn't know there used to be saber toothed tigers right here in the Midwest!

I stand (okay sit) in awe of the internet.

I always figured why would I want to read something that someone else made up? Just how I feel, I'm not knocking anyone who likes fiction. I realize there are fictional books in which a great deal of research is done.

Perhaps you feel you can express your imagination as well as the next guy!

Musical/Interpersonal/Renaissance Ideal

Mine was:

------
The Renaissance ideal

The leading thinkers of the Renaissance were not just experts in their own field. The renaissance scholar was expected to master all branches of knowledge.

With his insatiable desire to know everything, Leonardo da Vinci is often held up as the ideal Renaissance man.
------

Not bad, actually. I have long been fascinated with da Vinci's works...and even my wife refers to me as a Renaissance Man. : )

Me too...said I had bad breath too.

Seriously, this is just another attempt to desconstruct IQ. There is such a thing as IQ, and it is different from say musical talent. It is not the be all and end all - it certainly does not have a aspect that is morally superior - but there are people that are better at analysis of the phenomena and abstractions, the manipulation of of then and synthesis of thoughts into ideas. The left truly hates this notion while a the same time imagine that they are intellectually superior to the rest of us - more sophisticated too dontchaknow. It goes to show how silly they are.

The opposition of Music and Physics, however, of Mozart and Einstein for example is quite odd. I am sure that Bach, for instance, would have made a fine physicist.

Mine said "Renaissance Ideal". But I don't find it on the Thinking types page - phooey. For all I know, the "Renaissance Ideal" is a chubby redheaded chick in dire straits...

A chubby redheaded chick in dire straits? Nope,that's not me though like you I too am a "Renaissance Ideal". Lol, I guess that means we like Italian food!
