THE 4 INTELLIGENCES

Apart from the Intelligence Quotient (IQ), there are 3 other measures of intelligence that comprise the person, and these are: 

  • Intelligence Quotient (IQ) 

The measure of your ability to comprehend concepts, solve mathematics, memorization and recall. IQ is well known to be the measure of intelligence with standardized tests. This is a reflection of your intelligence. 

  • Emotional Quotient (EQ) 

 
Measure of one’s ability to control and understand their emotions to positively express them and properly communicate and empathize with others. A high EQ tends to reflect a more positive outlook in life and ability is able to maintain more wholesome relationships. This represents your character. 
 

  • Social Quotient (SQ) 

The SQ is the measure of your ability to build relationships with friends and maintain it for a long period of time. It is a reflection of your charisma and social prowess. 

  • Adversity Quotient (AQ) 

The measure of your ability to overcome hardships in life. The AQ highlights the person’s internal strength and will to push through adversity. By far, this is the most practical form of intelligence. 

 
You can perceive these intelligences in two ways: 

  1. These quotients are fixed for every person. Meaning, where they are proficient, that is their strength and cannot build up other intelligences.  

or 

  1. These quotients are skills that one can improve over time through effort. 

Thus, it is important to fortify one’s intelligences at a young age, that they may grow up to be well-rounded individuals.
