Emotional IQ - sometimes called "wisdom", is a significantly better benchmark than IQ at defining an individuals utility and success at life. Success being whatever a given individual defines for themselves....
not as a benchmark. used to help demonstrate that those who are intellectual are typically eccentric.
My high IQ allows me to think on many plains and manipulate complex machines in multiple axis in my brain, allowing me computer like design ability.
It coexists with autism, and that keeps me from understand people, or being able to communicate thoughts to others effectively.
I would consider success achievement of life goals. i have a few tall goals in life.
1 being a good Christian - an ongoing process.
2 having a V10 viper powered truck -achieved at 28.
3 having a yacht - achieved at 31
4 owning land - achieved at 25
5 seeing the world..... can it ever be completely achieved? not in one lifetime.
