IQ is Overrated: What You Really Need to Succeed

“I have no special talents; I am only passionately curious,” Albert Einstein once said. High IQ depends more on attitude than aptitude. Imagination is intelligence having fun.

It doesn’t matter if you did not receive the best academic training from a top university. A person with less education who has fully developed their EQ, MQ, and BQ can be far more successful than a person with an impressive education who falls short in these other categories.

IQ: Intelligence Quotient
EQ: Emotional Quotient
BQ: Body Quotient
MQ: Moral Quotient

IQ is a less important indicator of professional success and personal achievement than your EQ, MQ and BQ. IQ tests are used to predict logical reasoning ability and technical prowess but do not reliably predict executive competence or corporate success. More important factors include your personality and ability to communicate, negotiate and lead.

EQ relates to awareness of your own feelings and perceptive sensitivity to enable others. Developing healthy, coping strategies can help strengthen relationships and reduce stress.

MQ deals with integrity, responsibility, tolerance, keeping commitments and maintaining honesty, requiring energy, enthusiasm and effort. The way you treat yourself is the way other people will treat you.

BQ reflects what you know about your body, how you feel about it, and take care of it. Your BQ absolutely affect your work because it largely determines your reactions, feelings, thoughts, self-confidence and resilient flexibility. Good nutrition, regular exercise and adequate rest are routine mainstays, along with striving to become a more responsive listener by experiencing the mysterious.

Summing-up: Rather than simply focusing on your conventional-mindset intelligence quotient, you should also concentrate on maximising your EQ (emotional quotient), MQ (moral quotient) and BQ (body quotient). Most people prefer to do business with someone they implicitly like and ethically trust.
