This study aims to find out the general description of spatial-visual intelligence on 7th-grade students of Junior High School in solving geometry flat side problems based on geometry initial ability level. This study used Hass Theory, which classifies characteristics of spatial-visual intelligence on imagination, conceptualization, problem-solving, and pattern searching. The type of this study was descriptive with a qualitative approach. This study was conducted in SMP Negeri 2 Pangkajene. The subjects of this study were three students consisting of one student with a high geometry initial ability level, one student with a moderate geometry initial ability level, and one student with a low geometry initial ability level selected by purposive sampling. Data were collected using tests and interviews. The instruments of this study were geometry initial ability test, spatial-visual intelligent test with geometry flat side materials, and interview guidelines. The data analysis technique of this study used the Miles, Huberman, and Saldana Model, which consists of data condensation, data display, and conclusion drawing/verification. The results of this study show that: (1) The most dominant characteristics of students are imagination and pattern searching, while the least dominant characteristic is problem-solving, (2) Students with a high geometry initial ability level can fulfill three of the spatial visual intelligence characteristics, namely, imagination, conceptualization, and pattern searching, (3) Students with a moderate geometry initial ability level can fulfill two of the spatial visual intelligence characteristics, which are imagination and pattern searching, (4) Student with a low geometry initial ability level is not able to fulfill all of the spatial-visual intelligence characteristics.
