Testing & Individual Differences, Part III

  • There are many additional aspects of intelligence such as reflective ability, metacognition, speed of processing, neural intelligence, and experiential intelligence
  • Daniel Goleman proposed the idea of emotional intelligence, theorizing that how one reads and responds to emotional states of themselves and others is a more important skill than raw processing power—one needs both IQ and EQ for success
