Discussion: Intelligence

On March 12, 2009, a former chief of the New York Stock Exchange pled guilty to one

of the largest financial frauds in history. Bernie Madoff, founder of his own financial firm

and active philanthropist, had been swindling thousands of private investors -many of

whom were close friends -out of billions of dollars. Madoff had achieved a degree of

personal financial success few individuals ever attain, though he will be spending the

rest of his life in prison. Would you consider Madoff an intelligent person? What role

might emotional intelligence have played in his decision making?

For this Discussion, you define intelligence and detail its components. You also take a

position on whether or not emotional intelligence is an accurate measure of intelligence.

With these thoughts in mind:

By Day 4

Post a brief definition of intelligence, including the main components of intelligence.

Then provide your position on whether or not emotional intelligence is an accurate

measure of intelligence. Justify your response.
