“Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault”
The President of the United Stated of America
Just like the insecure person who wrote this tweet, society dumbly associates “smart” with high IQ.
Or with good grades at school.
The problem is IQ and school tests always reward the same kind of logical and problem solving oriented intelligence.
But what about emotional intelligence and the natural talent to connect with people?
What about the incredible artistic ability to create beauty and harmony?
And what about the 6th sense type of intuition some of us have?
These incredible forms of intelligence are not always rewarded as they should.
If you are feeling a bit stuck and constrained in your current job, chances are you have some type of alternative intelligence or talents that cannot shine in the current template you are being asked to fit in.
We created a free workbook to help you assess these alternative intelligences and better understand how you could use them to live on your own terms.

P.S. Let us know in the comments what you think about these alternative types of intelligence.

Thanks for the post, you guys do great work. I love reading you. Regarding the president’s comment: As Guinevere said to Sir Lancelot, “One thing you lack, and that’s humility.”
Stay humble and hungry, best advice I’ve received. It applies no matter what IQ we have.
