People write to ask me if there's correlation between academic intelligence and emotional intelligence.
My answer is no.
You can have a high IQ and a high EQ, which, of course, is a winning combination, or be high in one and low in the other.
The best study was done at Bell labs in New Jersey, a very high IQ place.
They do research and development for the communications industry.
In the division of electronics engineers, who were designing equipment so advanced that they work in teams of up to 150, co-workers and managers were asked to nominate the standouts, the stars in productivity and effectiveness.
在电子工程师部门，工程师们设计极其先进的设备，因此团队规模多达150人 。研究者要求工程师的同事和管理者从中提名出类拔萃者，高效多产的明星 。
They came up with 10 or 15 names, and that group of stars was compared with anyone else.
It turned out there was no difference in IQ, no difference in academic qualifications, no difference in years on the job.
The only difference was emotional intelligence.
The stars were people who knew how to get along.
They knew how to motivate themselves, usually the kind of people you like to hang out with.
When these people run up against to a technical problem, to which they have to turn to someone else for an answer, they email and get the answer right away, because they built up networks of people before they needed them.
The other people would email and wait up to 2 weeks for an answer.
So you can see how being good in the interpersonal realm actually was a direct benefit, even for effectively pursuing a technical task.
