Emotional Intelligence and Destiny I remember a guy from my group in Amherst College, received five different estimates of 800 points for the academic ability test and other tests the student's achievements, which he held before entering college. Despite their enormous mental capacity, he spent most of the time, constantly hanging somewhere, later returned home and missed classes, waking before noon. It took almost ten years to finally get a diploma. IQ almost does not explain why people with roughly equal inclinations, education and opportunities completely different fate. Tracing the journey of life ninety-five Harvard students issues of the 1940s - a time when the oldest universities in New England studied people with a more impressive spread of IQ than these days - it is impossible not to notice that the middle-aged men with the highest estimates the exams in universities turned out not too lucky in comparison with their peers less achievers in terms of wages, productivity and prestige in the chosen field. From their lives, they also did not experience satisfaction and happiness is not found in communicating with friends and families, as well as tying in a romantic relationship.
