    Default Are you spatial, nonspatial or tangible?

    Nicholas Lore used spatial, tangible and nonspatial aptitude in his career guides. One should stand out as being more or less dominant in each person, though some people may be fairly even in two or all three. Plus certain fields require ability in more than one. Here are sketches of all three based on Lore’s descriptions.

    Spatials have an inborn talent for precisely visualizing and working with 3-D reality and objects. Architects, surgeons, engineers, mechanics, microbiologists, etc. If you enter these professions lacking spatial ability, as some people do without knowing it, you’re going to struggle.

    Nonspatials tune into concepts outside 3-D reality and work naturally with ideas and information. A spatial looks at a house and thinks more about the structure and physical aspects. A non spatial wonders more about the lives of the occupants, the investment value, the feeling it projects, or other non material perceptions, impressions or abstractions about the house. Examples: psychology, literature, religion, political science, statistics, economics.

    Tangibles are more hands-on reality. Work that intimately involves the physical world—but without the necessity to actually think in 3-D. They tend to apply things and ideas to get a real world result. According to Lore, it’s also the information technologist’s ability to mentally visualize network connectivety, like a picture of a schematic in the mind’s eye. FBI agents use this ability to put together real world facts and evidence to solve cases. Examples: network engineering, database design, graphic arts, web site design, gardening, cooking, restaurant and retail management, production, zoology, wildlife biology, sports.

    You can combine this with your mbti type and maestro/tribal preference. Lore’s book Now What? has a section listing careers for each.

    I'm pretty much non spatial. I can understand the craziest theories and I can see logic and connection in stuff where others don't, but I need to imagine it physically, see the use of it in real life. That's why i hate advanced algebra, but I like simple geometry and simple physics (fx mechanics) and I'm also pretty good at economics, I like psychology and also social studies. Because they're real. I can see them.
    But i can say that i also have this big part of tangible in me.
    I'm like 50% non spatial, 40% tangible and 10% spatial.

    I'm a dominant spacial, but not lacking to any degree of severity in the other two.

    Based on those descriptions, I'm probably Spatial.

    I'm not sure how this is related to cognitive ability, but spatial intelligence is always my strongest one. Based on the description I would probably be a combination of Spatial and Non-spatial.

    ^Same here
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.
