A fad that swept through the field of psychology some years ago captured everyone's attention: EQ. Emotional intelligence is the supposedly touchy-feely construct that captures to what extent you're an insensitive clod. We're not talking about whether you are a jerk, but whether you just don't know any better because your emotional aptitude is stunted. Unlike intelligence testing, which has a long and sordid history wrapped up in eugenics, emotional intelligence is a relatively new construct free of any genetic, just-born-that-way junk. Supposedly, your EQ is a better predictor of job success than IQ. How about that?
Want to get a rough idea of what your EQ is, take a test here.
Note: It's not the actual, carefully standardized test the developers, Jack Mayer and Peter Salovey, created.
