1.Describe team members’ results on the Discovery Wheel and Develop your multiple intelligences exercises. What similarities and differences exist within the team?

Based on our team submission for the assignment of the Discovery Wheel, our team at some points, were in the same rim of thinking. In other areas, we were so far apart in how we place what we value in our lives. In the area of Thinking, Diversity and Attitudes our team was within a four point difference, which means we share and hold the same values in those areas. In the other areas, our team scoring ranges are far off from each other, showing no consistency in our scoring. The scores were either two in the same range of scoring or three to one in other areas.

The wide difference in scores indicate that we have a team that clearly views some areas in the same spectrum and other area we couldn’t be so far apart on how we value certain aspects of our lives.

I believe that the scores given are based on where people are at in their lives at this given time. If the same people took the Discovery Wheel activity at a different time, some scores would change . However, I also believe that there are some traits in the activity that would remain consistent no matter when the scores are tallied. This is why I believe the scores differ in ranges and show the similarities in others. We have people, who are in different stages in their lives, evidence by the ranges in the scores from the Discovery Wheel exercise.
