A l’il bit of psychology….

Just two days back we heard of the famous actor Sushant Singh Rajput dying of suicide….What a way to go…such a talented young actor…who had a bright future…but that was just not to be…
A Tribute to Sushant….
What a way to go
you had so much talent to show
but God knows His ways
that you had only a few days
to live and to give
wherever you are
may you shine like a star
from afar
Sushant Singh might not have SUSTAINED 4th QUOTIENT from the description below.
Little heavy dose but meaningful for walking on the difficult Road , difficult Time and DIFFERENT Situations.
Sharing an article read elsewhere.
…..According to psychologists, there are four types of intelligence:
1) Intelligence Quotient (IQ)
2) Emotional Quotient (EQ)
3) Social Quotient (SQ)
4) Adversity Quotient (AQ)
1. Intelligence Quotient (IQ): this is the measure of your comprehension ability”, solve maths; memorize things and recall subject matters.
2. Emotional Quotient (EQ): this is the measure of your ability to maintain peace with others; keep to time; be responsible; be honest; respect boundaries; be humble, genuine and considerate.
3. Social Quotient (SQ):
This is the measure of your ability to build a network of friends and maintain it over a long period of time.
People that have higher EQ and SQ tend to go farther in life than those with high IQ but low EQ and SQ. Most schools capitalize in improving IQ level while EQ and SQ are played down.
A man of high IQ can end up being employed by a man of high EQ and SQ even though he has an average IQ.
Your EQ represents your character; your SQ represents your charisma. Give in to habits that will improve these three Qs but more especially your EQ and SQ.
EQ and SQ make one manage better than the other.
Pls don’t teach children only to have higher IQ , but also to have higher EQ and SQ.
Now there is a 4th one :
A new paradigm
4. The Adversity Quotient (AQ):
The measure of your ability to go through a rough patch in life and come out without losing your mind.
AQ determines who will give up in face of troubles and may abandon their families.
In the current context of Corona, many professionally successful people are going thru bouts of Depression. Because they haven’t seen and thus are unprepared for Adversity.
To parents:
Expose children to other areas of life than academic. They should adore manual work, sport and art .
Develop their EQ, SQ and AQ. They should become multifaceted human beings able to do things independently of the parents.
Finally, *do not prepare the road for the children.
Prepare the children for the road.*

One thought on “A l’il bit of psychology….

  1. Your post brought to mind what a blogger friend had written some time ago. She said a younger teacher told her that these days teachers are very careful not to hurt the feelings of children and things are made easy for them so that they do not face any trouble. But earlier children learnt to face life. Things were not made easy for them. As you have written roads were not made for them. Regards
