#all the awards to jensen ackles #because really #you can literally see what’s going on in dean’s mind #like at first he can’t believe it #he calls his name #twice #because he can’t believe he’s actually gone #maybe he’s hoping it’s like with pamela #cas burnt her eyes out but she was still alive #but then #man #then you see him almost nodding #because of course kevin is dead #and of course dean thinks it’s his fault #kevin /trusted/ him #and this what happens when people trust him, right? #’i guess that’s what i do #i let down the people i love’
1. Linguistic Intelligence: the capacity to use language to express what’s on your mind and to understand other people. Any kind of writer, orator, speaker, lawyer, or other person for whom language is an important stock in trade has great linguistic intelligence.
2. Logical/Mathematical Intelligence: the capacity to understand the underlying principles of some kind of causal system, the way a scientist or a logician does; or to manipulate numbers, quantities, and operations, the way a mathematician does.
3. Musical Rhythmic Intelligence: the capacity to think in music; to be able to hear patterns, recognize them, and perhaps manipulate them. People who have strong musical intelligence don’t just remember music easily, they can’t get it out of their minds, it’s so omnipresent.
4. Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence: the capacity to use your whole body or parts of your body (your hands, your fingers, your arms) to solve a problem, make something, or put on some kind of production. The most evident examples are people in athletics or the performing arts, particularly dancing or acting.
5. Spatial Intelligence: the ability to represent the spatial world internally in your mind — the way a sailor or airplane pilot navigates the large spatial world, or the way a chess player or sculptor represents a more circumscribed spatial world. Spatial intelligence can be used in the arts or in the sciences.
6. Naturalist Intelligence: the ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) and sensitivity to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations). This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef.
7. Intrapersonal Intelligence: having an understanding of yourself; knowing who you are, what you can do, what you want to do, how you react to things, which things to avoid, and which things to gravitate toward. We are drawn to people who have a good understanding of themselves. They tend to know what they can and can’t do, and to know where to go if they need help.
8. Interpersonal Intelligence: the ability to understand other people. It’s an ability we all need, but is especially important for teachers, clinicians, salespersons, or politicians — anybody who deals with other people.
9. Existential Intelligence: the ability and proclivity to pose (and ponder) questions about life, death, and ultimate realities.
Howard Gardner’s seminal Theory of Multiple Intelligences, originally published in 1983, which revolutionized psychology and education by offering a more dimensional conception of intelligence than the narrow measures traditional standardized tests had long applied. (via divinespirit)
Being intelligent is not just about being ‘smart’ and good at academic subjects.

Jared Padalecki’s live tweets from episode 9.09 of Supernatural.
#’yes stiles i’m exactly where you told me to meet you#and i can TELL you are not anywhere near here#i swear to god if this is another one of your little red riding hood fantasy things you are never getting laid again’#derek hale’s disdain for cell phones is great
It has always been my headcanon that Derek Hale Hates Phones. Like, landlines, cellphones, Skype calls, you kids and your Google Plus Minus, whatever. This is obviously because there are not enough werewolf scientists to secretly push humans into developing higher quality audio input equipment. Most conventional phone and computer mics are band-pass filters, which means they only record within a certain range of frequencies and cut off the rest; phones are probably the worst culprits, and you can always tell the difference between someone’s voice in person and on the phone because so much of both the higher and lower frequencies are cut off from the signal, producing that characteristic thin and fuzzy voice. There’s also the volume problem: the crackly effect when you yell into a mic comes from its not being able to transmit the full intensity of your voice; the replayed noise effectively now has “holes” in it and is pretty terrible to listen to.
Now imagine how painful all that must be for someone who’s used to hearing a wider range of frequencies and intensities, who relies on his hearing to survive (um, occasionally), who is reminded every time he picks up the phone that this world is not made for him.
