Success Intelligence

September 2, 2013

As a successful person, but also as a promising candidate for a job ( problem solvers and profit earner ) you should deal strictly with the so-called soft skills. Successful marketing for your own  is underpinned by a skillful relationship management. The building blocks for this are emotional intelligence and social skills. To clarify these concepts , it takes a little theory .

What is emotional intelligence ?

The American psychologist Howard Gardner had suggested in the 1970s that the concept of intelligence by then was too one-sided – reduced to logical and rational skills – as it then was defined . He then reformulated the model of ” multiple intelligences ” .

Gardner thereby classified the various types of intelligence as :

> Linguistic intelligence

> Mathematics and logical intelligence

> Spatial perception

> Musical intelligence

> Physically – motor intelligence

> Intrapsychic intelligence (the ability to correctly classify own feelings )

> Interpersonal intelligence ( the sensitivity to respond to the emotions of others)


The latter two forms of intelligence thereby form the framework of emotional intelligence. It is the form of intelligence that is required in networking , so the process of mutually sustaining and conveying especially in the world of work in the first place .

The American psychologist John Mayer described , together with the intelligence and emotion researcher Peter Salovey , the five essential characteristics of emotional intelligence :

> Recognizing your own feelings.

> The ability to classify emotions constructively own.

> The emotional creativity ( the emotional reaction of the force).

> Empathy (the ability to empathize with other people’s feelings ).

> Exposure to the interpersonal, social behavior


As the quintessence of the reflections on the emotional intelligence Daniel Goleman summarizes as follows: ” For all of the skills that constitute the intelligence of emotions , there is an old-fashioned word: character. ” – How true!

How would you describe your character? One major factor that helps us immensely in cooperation, work or partnership is the ability to listen carefully be for you say something!
