Social Intelligence

Social Intelligence

Daniel Goleman

Overview

Daniel Goleman is widely known for studying the multiplicity of intelligence types among human beings. In his 1995 bestseller, Emotional Intelligence, he explained that measuring one's IQ was not a reliable measure of their intelligence, success, or happiness.

Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships explains that, in order to be happy and lead a balanced existence, focusing on one's emotional life isn't enough. We also need to foster our connections with others. In short, social intelligence is about the ability to accurately 'read' other people around us, as well as our social context – and act accordingly. Goleman highlights that the way we engage with our social environment has profound consequences, and not just for our external success. It also improves physical and mental health.

When we cultivate our social intelligence, we discover that humans are biologically built for cooperation, altruism, and empathy. The question is: are you going to nurture these qualities, or give them up in favor of self-absorption?

"When we focus on others, our world expands. Our own problems drift to the periphery of the mind and so seem smaller, and we increase our capacity for connection – or compassionate action."
