IQ, EQ, SQ, AQ
According to a well known Sydney based psychologists, with whom I had the pleasure to speak to in an Investor forum, there are four types of intelligence:
1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
2) Emotional Quotient (EQ)
3) Social Quotient (SQ)
4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)
1. Intelligence Quotient (IQ): this is the measure of your comprehension ability, solve maths, memorize and recall subject matters.
2. Emotional Quotient (EQ): this is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others, keep to time, be responsible, be honest, respect boundaries, be humble, genuine and considerate.
3. Social Quotient (SQ): This is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain relationships over a long period of time.
People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go farther in life than those with just high IQ. Most schools capitalize in improving IQ level while EQ and SQ are played down.
A man of high IQ can end up being employed by a man of high EQ and SQ even though he has an average IQ.
Your EQ represents your character; your SQ represents your charisma. Give in to habits that will improve these three Qs, especially your EQ and SQ.
There is one other, infact more important, aspect than just IQ, EQ and SQ.One that keeps us ticking and keeps us sustain a Battle in our Minds.
4. The Adversity Quotient (AQ): The measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life and come out without losing your mind.AQ determines who will give up in the face of troubles and may even go to the extreme step and abandon their families! 🙁
AQ is the Ability to face Failures, Rejections and to keep sustaining these negative forces from tormenting and trolling us.You sometimes see, some of the Brightest faces in the lives of the most impoverished people, that is Only because their AQ is High.They will have a Bounce in their steps that will make even the richest Billionaire cry in Envy!That is the hidden power of AQ.
So IQ alone without EQ & SQ will not take you to the Higher levels one desires.And without AQ, we are going into the Battle of Life without a Shield to protect us.
High AQs = Happiness
