  2. Second, a MIDAS Profile describes twenty-five kinds of skills associated with each intelligence (e.g., Instrumental and Vocal for Musical).
  3. Third, three intellectual style scales estimate the person’s preference for Innovation, General Logic, and Leadership.
  4. Fourth, qualitative information from each question provides descriptions of particular intellectual activities and actual outcomes.
  5. A follow up interview can provide highly detailed information about specific abilities and limitations.
