Spatial Intelligence

Spatial Intelligence

Hi, I’m Picture Patsy, and I drew all of the personas on this website. “Central to spatial intelligence are the capacities to perceive the visual world accurately, to perform transformations and modifications upon one’s initial perceptions, and to be able to recreate aspects of one’s visual experience, even in the absence of relevant physical stimuli,” (Gardner 1993, pg. 173).
