Intelligence, as defined in standard dictionaries, has two rather different meanings. In its most familiar meaning, intelligence has to do with the individual's ability to learn and reason. It is this meaning which underlies common psychometric notions such as intelligence testing, the intelligence quotient, and the like. In its less common meaning, intelligence has to do a body of information and knowledge. This second meaning is implicated in the titles of certain government organizations, such as the Central Intelligence Agency in the United States, and its British counterparts MI-5 and MI-6. INTELLIGENCE


Social intelligence according to the original definition of Edward Thorndike, is "the ability to understand and manage men and women, boys and girls, to act wisely in human relations". It is equivalent to interpersonal intelligence, one of the types of intelligences identified in Howard Gardner's Theory of multiple intelligences, and closely related to theory of mind. Some authors have restricted the definition to deal only with knowledge of social situations, perhaps more properly called social cognition or social marketing intelligence, as it pertains to trending socio-psychological advertising and marketing strategies and tactics. SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE


Popular science writer Daniel Goleman has drawn on social neuroscience research to propose that social intelligence is made up of social awareness (including empathy, attunement, empathic accuracy, and social cognition) and social facility (including synchrony, self-presentation, influence, and concern). SCIENTIFIC STUDIES

Slide 5: 

In 2005,business writer Carl Albrecht proposed a five part model of social intelligence in his book “SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE-THE NEW SCIENCE OF SUCCESS”, presented with the acronym “S.P.A.C.E” S - Situational Awareness P - Presence A - Authenticity C - Clarity E - Empathy

The Prototype of Social Intelligence : 

Accepts others for what they are; Admits mistakes; Displays interest in the world at large; Is on time for appointments; Has social conscience; Thinks before speaking and doing; Displays curiosity;Does not make snap judgments Makes fair judgments; Is sensitive to other people's needs and desires; Is frank and honest with self and others; and Displays interest in the immediate environment The Prototype of Social Intelligence

Slide 8: 

Understands people's thoughts, feelings, and intentions well; Is good at dealing with people; Has extensive knowledge of rules and norms in human relations; Is good at taking the perspective of other people; Adapts well in social situations; Is warm and caring; and Is open to new experiences, ideas, and values.


In Sternberg's (1985, 1988) triarchic theory, social intelligence is part of a larger repertoire of knowledge by which the person attempts to solve the practical problems encountered in the physical and social world. According to Cantor and Kihlstrom (1987), social intelligence is specifically geared to solving the problems of social life, and in particular managing the life tasks, current concerns (Klinger 1977) or personal projects (Little, 1989) which the person selects for him- or herself, or which other people impose on him or her from outside. Put another way, one's social intelligence cannot be evaluated in the abstract, but only with respect to the domains and contexts in which it is exhibited and the life tasks it is designed to serve. And even in this case, "adequacy" cannot be judged from the viewpoint of the external observer, but rather from the point of view of the subject whose life tasks are in play. SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE IN LIFE TASKS

Slide 10: 

First and foremost, life tasks are articulated by the individual as self-relevant, time-consuming, and meaningful. They provide a kind of organizing scheme for the individual's activities, and they are embedded in the individual's ongoing daily life. And they are responsive to the demands, structure, and constraints of the social environment in which the person lives. Life tasks are imposed on people, and the ways in which they are approached may be constrained by sociocultural factors.


Train yourself to “read social situations”. What’s going on here? What are the interests, needs, feelings, and possible intentions of those involved? Respect, affirm, and appreciate people and you’ll find that most of them will reply in kind. Putting people down seldom gains you anything. Listen – attentively, respectfully, and with the intention of learning. Pause for one heartbeat before you respond to what someone says; it gives your brain extra time to choose your words well. Remember that arguing is one of the least effective ways of changing one’s mind; you don’t always have to fight to win. HOW TO CONNECT WITH PEOPLE

Slide 13: 

When you disagree with others, first acknowledge their right to think the way they do – then offer your views respectfully. Try using questions rather than confrontations, to invite others to change their minds. Stay our of conflicts with toxic people; work around them. Get the “cats and dogs” out of your conversation – minimize categorical and dogmatic declarations. Accentuate the positive – and that’s what you’ll mostly get in return.


CONCLUSION Thus, we can say that social intelligence is really necessary in our day-to-day life.
