Not to be confused with interpersonal intelligence, intrapersonal intelligence is being aware of yourself. You have the capacity to be self-aware and in tune with your inner feelings, values, beliefs, and thinking processes. This does not mean you are an introvert, though most people who have a dominant intrapersonal intelligence are. You prefer to work alone and tend to be a bit of a perfectionist. You are very intuitive and independent and enjoy learning new things about yourself. You spend a lot of time thinking and reflecting.
Some jobs that fit the intrapersonal intelligence type are:
When they film the scenes, they shoot them over and over and over, even if it’s a good take and no one messes up their lines, they do it again and again, partly to get coverage, but mostly because the director is looking for something very specific.
We shot the wedding night scene, where they have their first sexual encounter. The first take was fine, as far as I could tell, but the director, Anna Foerster, had them do it over and over again. I was fascinated. I kept thinking, “Why is she doing this?” and then finally I realized she was wearing them out. She got them tired enough that they just cut loose and actually acted like people who had been up all night trying to have sex.
When actors are doing this sort of thing — anything that involves what you might call physical choreography, fight scenes, sex scenes, etc. — they have thought it out very carefully ahead of time. They were making the exact same sounds each time, until Foerster brought them to the point of total exhaustion, and then they started making real sounds. [Laughs]."
