Types of Intelligence

There are mainly three types of intelligence

Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
Emotional Quotient (EQ)
Social Quotient (SQ)

Intelligence Quotient (IQ):

this is the measure of your comprehension ability”, solve maths; memorize things and recall subject matters.

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.

Social Quotient (SQ):

this is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain it over a long period of time.

People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go farther in life than those with high IQ but low EQ and SQ. Most schools capitalize in improving IQ level while EQ and SQ are down played.

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 but more especially your EQ and SQ.

EQ and SQ make one manage better than the other.

Now there is a 4th one : A new paradigm

The Adversity Quotient (AQ):

the measure of your ability to go through a rough path in life and come out without losing your mind.
AQ determines who will give up in face of troubles, who will abandon their family or who will consider suicide.

To parents.
Expose children to other areas of life other than academic. They should adore manual work (but never use work as a form of punishment), instead use sport and art. Develop their EQ, SQ and AQ. They should become multifaceted human beings able to do things independently of the parents.

Finally, do not prepare the road for the children. Prepare the children for the road.

For those who are working for education and parents, students and teachers, I feel if you work on these parameters of children, your business will flourish and succeed and society will value…..

Received on a social media platform, very useful read to parents !!!

    one more aspect of intelligent quotient is SQ – The concept of Spiritual Quotient (SQ) is fast emerging as the next big aspect of scientific study as it directly correlates to a person’s awareness and consciousness.
