Emotional Intelligence

Author : Daniel Goleman

Genre : Nonfiction, Self-Help

When I worked with university and high school students, instead of asking them, “How smart are you?” I would ask, “How are you smart?”

In this book, Goleman argues that our view of human intelligence is far too marrow, ignoring a vast range of abilities that matter immensely in terms of how we do in life. Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, he shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do surprisingly well. These factors which include self-awareness and emotional control, self-discipline and impulse control, the ability to understand other people, and empathy, add up to a different way of being smart.
