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.
人们经常写信问我，学术智力与情绪智力之间有没有关联 。我的回答是没有 。有人也许智商高，情商也高，当然这是最佳组合，也有人高智商低情商或低智商高情商 。
The best study was done at Bell Labs in New Jersey, a very high IQ place. They do research into development for the communications industry. In a division of electronic engineers, who were designing equipments 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. They came up with 10 or 15 names, and that group of stars was compared with everyone else. It turned out there was no difference in IQ, no difference in academic qualifications, no difference in years on the job.
新泽西州的贝尔试验室是高智商聚集地，他们进行了一项最佳实验 。他们研究了通信行业的发展 。试验室有一个拥有150名设计先进设备的电子工程师团队，试验室让他们的同事和经理选出这个团队在生产力和工作效率方面的杰出人物，也就是最优秀者 。他们选出了10到15个人，然后试验室将这几名最优秀者和其他人进行比较 。结果发现，他们的智商没有差别，他们的学术智力没有差别，工作时间没有差别 。
The only difference was emotional intelligence. The stars were people who knew how to get along, who knew how to motivate themselves, usually the kind of people you like to hang out with. When these people ran up against a technical problem, to which they'd have to turn to someone else for an answer, they'd e-mail and get an answer right away, because they built up a network of people before they needed them. The other people would e-mail and wait up to two 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.
唯一的差别在于情绪智力 。最优秀者知道如何和他人相处，知道如何激励自己，他们是你想一起玩的那种人 。这些人在遇到学术问题，要向他人寻求答案时，他们会立刻发邮件求得答案，因为他们在之前已经建立了关系网，以备不时之需 。其他人则会发邮件，然后可能要等两个星期才会得到答案 。大家可以看到，处理好人际关系所带来的直接利益，包括解决学术任务的效率 。
