Emotional Intelligence/Self-esteem

So do you think it is more important is just as important as academic intelligence? Some people think it is.

And also, should we have things like "12th Place Trophies" and "Last Place Medals" to make kids feel like they're winners even if they aren't? Because if we don't it will "destroy their self-esteem?"

Personally, I don't think we should. If you lost, you lost. I think it may tell kids that not doing your best is okay, and that you will still be rewarded even if you don't do much. When they get older, they have to learn anyway that only doing your best will get you rewards. And While Emotional Intelligence in kids is cool I guess, I don't know how much....

Some people*COUGHCOUGHmybrotherCOUGHCOUGH* feel like complete garbage when they lose, especially when it's young children, usually as long as they whin something they'll feel better

And no, I don't think emotional intelligence is better than academic intelligence, they're both the same to me

Your Intelligence Quotient (IQ) vs your EQ or EI. I guess how you are socially and your emotions. Some people believe this is more important than people think.

Ibarra75: Yeah but if he gets a "Last Place" Award does that really make him feel better?

Well the arguement is that your Emotional Intelligence is important as well, and that it can also determine your outcome on jobs. And that there is a problem with children and self esteem. I already know your self esteem is through the roof, Beef.

or game reviews

Hm, I don't really care about popularity of myself or reviews or any internet crap anymore. Now I care more about my real life. I just come here to chat about games and what not.
