When it comes to IQ it is safe to say, that nearly everyone has heard the term and even passed special tests to measure it. IQ shows the capacity of an individual to solve logical tasks and operate with numbers, words and notions. Lists of people with high IQ are published on regular basis and we expect those with higher IQ to perform better, than those with lower one. But Daniel Goleman, Ph.D, begs to differ. In the audiobook "Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ” this psychologist brings forth an idea that it takes more than IQ to succeed. In many situations our social competencies, our ability to understand and control our emotions and to take the lead are far more important than logical reasoning. Emotional intelligence is responsible for these abilities and many others, so EQ is the new IQ. While you listen online "Emotional Intelligence: Why it can matter more than IQ” you will discover what emotional intelligence really is and how it can be developed.
