Read the essay Lindsey Frost wrote as part of her application to a university. Then read it again and choose the letter of the answer that correctly completes each sentence.

     You can see from my high school records that my grades are only average. But grades do not tell the whole story about a person’s abilities. Some people who are geniuses probably don’t do well in school at all. I believe that there are different kinds of intelligence and not all of them are measured in school.
     My intelligence lies in my communication skills. I am really good at getting people to talk to me, and it just happens naturally. People have always wanted to share their thoughts and feelings with me. And when I talk, people listen. People tend to come to me for advice, and they take the advice that I give them. It usually turns out to be pretty good advice, too.
     I am able to get along with most people, and I believe that it is because of my natural communication skills. If I have a problem, or if I am upset, I am able to talk about it. I don’t keep my feelings inside. I think a lot of people appreciate my openness.
     My dream is to use my interpersonal intelligence to help people. In the future I would like to be a school psychologist and help students work out problems they have at school or at home. This school offers one of the best psychology programs in the country. I know that I can achieve my goal by combining my skills with an education from this school.
