Social Intelligence

Social Intelligence

Recently, I  presented to the Greater Rochester Young Professionals group on the topic of Social Intelligence, and while researching to prepare, I realized the subject is just fascinating.  In fact,  I’m thinking about going back to school for more advanced study on sociology.

Emotional Intelligence is about understanding ourselves, while Social Intelligence is about understanding our social environment.   Science has shown that humans are wired to be social as a means of survival and our social experiences can not only shape us going forward, but also affect our biological state.  Our feelings from a particular experience can create “cascades of hormones that regulate biological systems from our heart to immune cells.”
