Home of the MIDAS Profile

“There’s more to being smart than an I.Q. test score!”

Multiple Intelligences Developmental Assessment Scales(MIDAS™) were created by Branton Shearer, Ph.D. in 1987 as a means to enhance a person’s intellectual performance, career development and personal satisfaction.  The MIDAS™ Profile has been described as the Swiss Army knife of self-assessments that guides people to a deeper appreciation for their intellectual and creative lives.

Teachers report that understanding students’ MI strengths guides their use of creative teaching strategies.

Adults at work and in transition gain more useful self-knowledge from the rich and descriptive MIDAS™ profile than from other so-called MI intelligence “tests”.

Business Leaders Dr. Shearer consults widely with business leaders to bring the power of the MIDAS™ profile to the many challenges that confront managers and HR directors.

Parents tell us that understanding their child’s MIDAS™ Profile helps them to be better parents.

Teens and young adults gain a keen appreciation for their intellectual passions that clarifies and affirms their career paths.

AUTUMN in the air!

Apple_Butter_stirSeasonal changes spark opportunities to reenact traditional practices and begin a new tradition. MI goes both ways. It can be both ancient and new at the same time. This photo of steaming kettles of apples as they become Apple Butter symbolize this dualism. Following old procedures, new butter for a new generation is produced. The process may be the same but new ingredients change with the times. We brought home our pint of sugar free Apple Butter and it is delicious!  Are your teaching activities stirring your students to appreciate old knowledge but in the language of today? Will all students be nourished regardless of their MI profile? When old procedures are blended with the apples of today, we’ll feed future generations and spark their appetite for deep learning. 

NOTE: The office of MI Research Inc. will be closes Nov. 1 – 5th and again Nov. 9 – 17th.
