|The Other Kind of Smart|
Title: The Other Kind of Smart By Harvey Deutschendorf
Description: That it was our cognitive intelligence, or IQ, that determined how well we would do in life. Yet, our common sense and simple power of observation tells us that this simply cannot be the case—that there must be more to success than how well we do in exams at school. In Successful Intelligence, Robert Sternberg looks at the case of two Yale graduates and how they fared in the real world. Penn was brilliant in his classes and creative, being able to come up with ideas of his own.
He was, strictly in academic terms, the best to come out of Yale. There was only one problem, Penn was quite arrogant and almost completely lacking in practical skills. Even though Penn was interviewed by all of the top companies, his arrogance assured that he wasn’t called back with job offers. His only offer came from a second-rate company where he lasted for only three years. On the other hand, Penn’s roommate Matt was not as strong academically but had a great deal of social intelligence. Matt received seven offers from eight interviews. Although not brilliant, he has been a reliable performer and his social skills have allowed his career to flourish.
