    I scored a lot on mathematical-logical intelligence, about 30% lower on visual intelligence and about a few points less than visual for intrapersonal intelligence. I can reason well, look at sequences, tie up something that doesn't tie up, etc., but I cannot do Algebra. I can do geometry well though, as long, as it isn't a complex formula that needs to be learned, I can calculate it. I also like programming, I am able to make algorithms, think of some too complex way to do something I don't know how to do while programming, etc.. But algebra... I can't solve a pretty simple problem, like functions or equations for example.
    How is that possible? I mean, isn't a person with a high logical/mathematical intelligence do well in that situation? Seems a little bit illogical to my knowledge and current understanding of the situation.


    Sorry for my poor English skills, I've learned it by myself... Trying to improve them, feel free to criticize, hehe.

    I know nothing about your educational background but I might suggest that perhaps you've not had a proper formation in algebra. Perhaps you learned algebra from a crappy book and/or teacher. For me in studying mathematics there tend to be things that come naturally and somewhat effortlessly and other things that I have to work hard to master. I suppose this is normal. Also, some math books and teachers suck ass. I hope this is helpful.


    Keanu is sad.
