Apparently emotional intelligence and social factors can be more important for professional success than intelligence. Well gee, who knew? "It's not what you know, it's who you know." I've always been brilliant and humble, but it wasn't until after graduating high school that I realized how important it was for me to be sociable. I'm still working on it! A while ago I bought a copy of Daniel Goleman's Emotional Intelligence but I haven't yet found time to read it... I suppose I should move it up the queue.
