    I don't really see musical intelligence relating to understanding speech per se... but definitely on picking up the nuiances in pronounciation when learning a foreign language.

    I also see it dealing with a sense of rhythum... which can be useful in performing actions that requires precise timing. I know certainly I "time" a lot of things to compensate for shaky hands

    I scored # 1 in Musical Intelligence, as well. Didn't understand it either. Thanks for asking the question.

    Anyone else with some ideas? I'm kinda confused with it.

    Well, from what I understood during a student/teacher discussion on intelligence, musical intelligence isn't related to linguistic intelligence. It's related to mathematical intelligence.

    It's excellent for pattern recognition.

    Could it be said to be a part of timing in relation to things like baseball and other such games where you have to calculate the approach of the ball or is that all spatial/ BK ?
    Singing something commits it to memory much better than any other method, at least for me. If I have to memorize something, singing it is the best way, even if I make up a tune on the spot.

    Learning music theory made math more clear to me (although I still suck at math).

    Many people think they suck at math or music even when they do not.
    It may be the teacher who sucks.

    So it's linked to maths, pattern recognition and timing.

    Maths? I don't get that link myself. Yes I can do maths (famous for having no problems with algebra but can struggle with addition somedays it only made sense after Dom told me about the fence posts and fence panels thing).

    Pattern Recognition. Hell yes, I often see two things as the same when most people are like "Wha? Are you crazy??".

    Timing. You should see my driving

    That thing about singing stuff into your memory, I don't do that but I do set it to a rhythm. Oh and I recall the lyrics to a frightening number of songs but only when their playing. I always figured it was just my hinky brain.

    I wonder what correlation there is between musical intelligence and vulnerability to those catchy tunes which won't leave your head and, even when they seem to have left, return a short while later?
    Example cases - The tune from Kill Bill (never learnt the title), Where your head at, I want to be a hippy...etc etc {Oh and if you now have one stuck then do YOU have a high musical intelligence?} [Captive test subjects rock]
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
