Are you like a spider capable of connecting any point by its input into situation? Well it is called Interpersonal Intelligence and the wikipedia has kind of boring description of it so I will play God and explain it to you.
Interpersonal intelligence is basically ability to socialize, think with other people, calibrate working collective and being cool when someone is screaming at you.
Timothy Leary said that philosophy is a team sport. Life is a team sport. Everything is a team sport. And we experienced it by its own. In every workshop during project we were forced to push ourselfs out of the shell and explore, design, discuss stuff with other people.
'This area deals with spatial judgment and the ability to visualize with the mind's eye. Spatial ability is one of the three factors beneath g in the hierarchical model of intelligence.'
- Our collective creation, next step of evolution... THE GREAT WIKIPEDIA! But now let´s check how it was with the project.
Sub-dimensional (2D to 3D) mental transfer is best exercised with putty clay!
Each group had different topic... The magic was happening - homo sapiens-creativus at its purest!
Then welcome in the majority of population... But when you can't help yourself playing instruments, singing, dancing, annoying your professor with a bad-ass rhythms done by your pencil - then you probably have ability which is called:
Musical–rhythmic and harmonic Intelligence
'This area has to do with sensitivity to sounds, rhythms, tones, and music. People with a high musical intelligence normally have good pitch and may even have absolute pitch, and are able to sing, play musical instruments, and compose music. They have sensitivity to rhythm, pitch, meter, tone, melody or timbre.' - Wikipedia
Dance with the wolves - remember that movie - Kevin Costner plays NATURE SMART guy who is incredibly sensitive towards our fluffy and cute friends as well rigid and ignorant trees? If you empathize, you have probably ability called Naturalistic Intelligence. It is sensitiveness targeted toward nature and environment in general. You can become zoo-keeper, biologist, ecologist (and many many more x-logist which involves interaction and protection of nature.)

There are a lot of things you can learn on the projects. These things are important not only for your personality but also for your future. Our world requires individualistic people but also able to work in a team. Working in a team can give you a lot. For example you can share your knowledge and extend your communication skills.
We were spread into different groups every day to work together on tasks. The importance of it was to find the right idea on which could the team work. The special thing on the project Eight Intelligences was that everybody could show it's talent to the others. You don't have to be excellent in all eight intelligences but you can be really good in one. That is a great opportunity to help the others in your team to get better in it and you can learn some new abilities from the others.

The project 'Eight Intelligences 2' lasted 10 days in Struga, Macedonia. All 56 participants tried very hard to find all their intelligences and the way how to improve them. This project gave us not only new knowledge and abilities but also new friendships, opportunities and time to find ourselves.
Let's watch the insights from 5 participants: Cémal (Turkey), Nikola (Serbia), Ismail (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Monika (Lithuania) and Nikola (Macedonia).
'The core elements of the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence are control of one's bodily motions and the capacity to handle objects skillfully. Gardner elaborates to say that this also includes a sense of timing, a clear sense of the goal of a physical action, along with the ability to train responses.' - Wikipedia
Estrogen and Testosterone, the jing and jang, melted together in exercises which helped us to discover to which degree we basically lost or preserved our longest lasting area of psyche - the ability to control your muscles (run forest, run) . Together we prepared dance preformances of different genre and participated in wedding. So yeah... long life Nikola and Ivana!!!
