IQ vs EQ
You need both !
"IQ does not and cannot predict success in life. As for IQ's relevance in the workplace, studies have shown that it can serve to predict between 1 and 20 percent (the average is 6 percent) of success in a given job. EQ, on the other hand, has been found to be directly responsible for between 27 and 45 percent of job success, depending on the job field."
