What’s your LQ: Life Intelligence Score?

At some point in your life, you may have had your IQ (Intellectual Quotient) measured. IQ testing was designed to measure your analytical and linguistic skills.

I did not really understand it at the time; I just remember being disappointed that I was not chosen to skip a grade. What a terrible way to brand our children!

In the ensuing years other “Q’s” have emerged, including Goldman’s EQ, designed to measure Emotional Intelligence (EI). EI is your inner landscape of emotional self-awareness.
