Intelligence Falls Into 4 Categories

1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
2) Emotional Quotient (EQ)
3) Social Quotient (SQ)
4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)

1. Intelligence Quotient (IQ): this is the measure of your level of comprehension. You need IQ to solve maths, memorize things, and recall lessons.

2. Emotional Quotient (EQ): this is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others, keep to time, be responsible, be honest, respect boundaries, be humble, genuine and considerate.

3. Social Quotient (SQ): this is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain it over a long period of time.

People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go further in life than those with a high IQ but low EQ and SQ. Most schools capitalize on improving IQ levels while EQ and SQ are played down.

A man of high IQ can end up being employed by a man of high EQ and SQ even though he has an average IQ.

Your EQ represents your Character, while your SQ represents your Charisma. Give in to habits that will improve these three Qs, especially your EQ and SQ.

Now there is a 4th one, a new paradigm:

4. The Adversity Quotient (AQ): The measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life, and come out of it without losing your mind.

When faced with troubles, AQ determines who will give up, who will abandon their family, and who will consider suicide.

Parents please expose your children to other areas of life than just Academics. They should adore manual labour (never use work as a form of punishment), Sports and Arts.

Develop their IQ, as well as their EQ, SQ and AQ. They should become multifaceted human beings able to do things independently of their parents.

Finally, do not prepare the road for your children. Prepare your children for the road."

What about music quotient and fine art quotient?
Those are not part of intelligence just like Photothermal Ratio (PTR) aka Photothermal Quotient. They are all measurements but of other quantities.


844 ruined millions of children's future by gauging all kids using alphabetical grades A, A- B, B+ ndio maana unapata watu kama Sonko and Waititu who are academic failures are billionaires while watu walipata A na A- ni computer technicians and teachers earning 16K per month.

Street Smart vs Kisomo mingo ya 844 I'd rather be street Smart with Form 2 education than have MSc. Botany and penniless.

Quite insightful. I'm not sure if I have a good SQ but for the other three, I have in abundance. I am a firm believer of something I also read here I think was said by @Azor Ahai . That you should never entertain broke friends because if situations were reversed, they wouldn't entertain you too. I see this in many dimensions, not just the brokenness which I actually have no much problem with. A lean, neat network works for me.
Hio AQ been thinking about it for a while but didn't know it's something that exists, psychologically speaking.

Kenya is full of half baked graduates. Combine this with nepotism and you have a total shithole country. In some counties unapata some illiterate cu,nt ndiye head of IT yet hata hawezi kuconnect projector kwa comp, so when there is a major meeting they rush to town and organize na jamaa wa Cyber for tech support. Kenya ni Sh!thole

Are these the same half baked graduates who write papers for lazy rich kids in big name universities?
