Your Intelligence IQ, EQ Or Square?
Would you consider yourself to be clever?

Schools and the training system would have us think that we are only intelligent if we are ready..

How frequently have we heard others discuss how smart someone is considered by them to be? Intelligence is a description of how good some-one reaches mentally doing something. Intelligence involves thought. Intelligence involves the capability to cause, strategy, resolve dilemmas, think abstractly, understand ideas and language and to-learn.

Can you consider yourself to be clever?

Schools and the education system would have us think that we're just clever if we're able to resolve complex abstract dilemmas or recall facts and figures. I'd concur that this is really a type of intelligence and this type of intelligence is usually referred to as IQ or intelligence quotient (an expression coined by an American psychologist named Lewis Terman).

A small portion of the populace includes a high IQ and they discover the academic sort of activities and learning in college relatively simple. But the great majority of individuals don't. So where does that leave everyone else?

Well, the good thing is that IQ isn't a measure of success. Most people having a high IQ don't continue to be as successful as their IQ score may possibly lead us to believe. A lot of people having a high IQ simply take fairly well paid, but program, employment. The majority are not happy with danger and rather restrict their own success by becoming comfortable and fall far short of what their potential suggests.

There's another kind of intelligence which may be more impor-tant to success in life and it has been publicised by the best-selling book Emotional Intelligence (or EQ) by Daniel Goleman (although the term was initially used several years earlier by two instructors - Mayer and Salovey).

EQ needs to do with realizing, understanding, and choosing how we feel, feel, and act. It forms our interactions with others and our understanding of ourselves. It describes how and what we learn; it permits us to set priorities; it determines many our day to day actions.

EQ is the capability to create positive results within our relationships with the others and ourselves. These learnable skills build pleasure, love, and achievement of most sorts.

Understanding EQ it becomes clear that IQ has less related to success in life than EQ. The good thing is that most of us have EQ and that it can be created. Our EQ can be developed by us to greatly help us develop our relationships with others, to utilize our emotions appropriately, to be much more successful in life and to focus our efforts.

EQ might be therefore important that it could be the most useful predictor of who will succeed in any area of life.

Could we look beyond IQ and EQ?

When you go through the earth, do you see only space and time, mass and energy, logic and reason? Or can you also see purpose and design, connectivity and religion, meaning and mystery?

In his book Whats your SQ? Michael Guillen is promoting the idea of religious intelligence or SQ. Your views are considered by sq beyond the living of modern life. Without spirituality it is possible to become very unhappy or dissatisfied with life no-matter how much material possessions we gather.

If you're not truly happy may you become successful? I'd argue maybe not and a harmony of EQ, IQ and SQ are essential for a happy and successful life.

Are there any other styles of intelligence? Yes, there's another important concept on multiple intelligences and you can learn about that in another report.

To become successful and happy in life concentrate on your EQ and SQ. My girlfriend learned about division by browsing the Internet.
