Another way to present the 9 types of intelligence as exemplified by my How Do We Measure Intelligence post.

The basic idea is that different people are good at different things. These 9 probably don’t cover the wide range of smarts we all possess, but it’s a start.

As Albert Einstein said, ”Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

The following isn’t scientifically backed up or anything, but it’s a list I’ve composed from various websites whose source I’ll put at the bottom!
Natural Disasters: Since the weather is unpredictable it’s said to represent the stress and anxiety in the person’s life
Seeing the dead: A reflection of an inability to let go
Missing important events: Anxiety about failing and not meeting expectation 
Naked: Person may suffer from self-image issues and low self-esteem issues
Teeth falling out: Inner turmoil on being judged by others based on physical appearance
Injuries: Feeling vulnerable in a part of your life
Partner leaving: Dread of being alone, being not good enough for the partner
Being trapped: Unable to get out of current situation (dead end job, negative relationship)
Falling: The feeling that one is unable to control a certain aspect of their life
Being chased/attacked: Being afraid to confront something in your life
Technology malfunction: Such as a phone not working, represents failing to reach out to someone on an emotional level
I got these from listverse and howstuffworks

Teeth falling out/rotting can also be indicative of stress and anxiety! Nakedness also indicates vulnerability the person doesn’t want to feel. Also, a couple of others I’ve been asked about that have been missed:
Being killed: It’s not actually impossible to die in dreams, despite what everyone says. Represents feeling disappointed and acting in a way that’s not compatible with your feelings (i.e., doing something you don’t want to do just to keep others happy).
Dog attacks: Someone you thought to be loyal is against you or plans to betray you. Represents a friend or friends you shouldn’t trust, especially if the dog is black.
Fire: To dream you are burning means your temper is getting out of control. If a house is on fire, it’s symbolic of needing a change; if you are trapped in a burning house, it represents you feeling insecure about your ability to make changes. To dream you are setting something or someone alight means you are struggling with anger.
Drowning: Dreaming that you are drowning means you are being overwhelmed by emotions, and need to take things slower and more carefully.
Being inexplicably hated or disliked: Hate in dreams represents repressed aggression and fear of confrontation. To dream you are hated by people who should love you indicates worry that you’ve done something to upset or hurt them, or guilt over actions or words that haven’t been resolved yet. It can also be a sign of insecurity over how important you are to others.

Thanks for making this more awesome :)

Guide to Self-Studying Japanese
A large proportion of Japanese learners self-study. Finding places to learn Japanese in a classroom environment can be difficult and expensive. Here’s a guide on how you can learn Japanese for free and from the comfort of your sofa.

When learning Japanese, the most important step is to learn Hiragana and Katakana, the writing alphabets of Japanese.
The best way I’ve found to do that is to make flashcards. Make sure you practice writing as well as recognizing them, this will not only be a great skill to have but will also reinforce the shapes in your mind.
Resources:
[Hiragana 42], the best guide I’ve found to learn the Hiragana (in a day!)[Hiranana and Katakana Quiz Site][Kana Invaders Game][Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Vocabulary….

The next step is to start learning vocabulary. Where can you find what to learn? Use a site like Memrise to find word lists (for example, there is a word list for all the vocabulary in starter textbooks like Genki), and use the amazing interface to learn them and keep them in your long term memory.
Resources:
[Memrise] as mentioned above to find and learn vocabulary lists.[Most Common Words List][Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Kanji….

While encountering vocabulary, you’re likely to be coming across super-complicated-looking Kanji. You can learn Kanji through Memrise as above, but there are some other websites that may be of interest.
Resources:
[Kanji Damage] A great site where you can learn Kanji through Mnemonics.[WaniKani] by the same people ho make TextFugu (below) can help you learn Kanji from scratch.[Anki] An amazing program that will make sure you never forget any Kanji….

The next step is to apply that new vocabulary to grammar points and start making sentences.
If you can’t get your hands on textbooks like Genki, don’t fear! There are a lot of great online grammar resources.
Resources:
[TextFugu] a highly rated ‘online textbook’ which will guide you right from the beginning of learning Japanese.[Guide to Japanese] another online textbook with a lot of grammar points and excellent explanations.

The Fun Parts: Using Japanese Online Media
So you probably have learnt Japanese because you have some interest in Japanese media. Time to start using it to your learning advantage!
Aside from the obvious watching Anime, J-dramas and films, why not try Reading Japanese News? Watching Japanese TV? Just make sure you are making these activities productive - note down new vocabulary, add them to Anki, and keep learning! It’s much easier to learn things you’re interested in. Try translating Japanese songs, etc.

The most important but difficult part of self-studying Japanese is getting your own compositions checked. Utilize all that grammar and vocabulary and write a short piece, it could be a diary entry or a short essay. Get it recorded for you by a native on RhinoSpike, and checked for grammar and consistencies on Lang-8.These sites also give you the chance to connect with Japanese natives, and perhaps start up some language exchanges!
