4.0 von 5 Sternen Emotional Intelligence
Anyone over the age of thirty soon comes to realize that what was taught in school is not necessarily all there is to know in life. Consequently, the smartest people, the ones who always got A's in school, don't always end up being the most successful. Ultimately, a high IQ is not the most important factor when one encounters the real world. In this respect, Goleman...

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not exactly what it appears to be
There is a lot to admire here and I enjoyed returning to a genre (popular psychology) that I left many years ago. If my recollection is correct, Goleman's book is a step beyond such "classics" as I'm Okay, You're Okay..., etc., particularly in terms of scholarship. I liked the way he took the medical profession to task for its lack of empathy and its failure to...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Thought provoking, 18. April 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Psychological theories come-and-go, and no one can predict if Goleman's thesis that emotional development determines success in life will hold up in the long run. However, I was surprised at how often the book inspired me to examine my own life and search for emotional explanations. More often than not, his theories brought a clarity to my actions that I didn't have before.
I wouldn't quite call this book self-help, but as a tool for introspection, it's invaluable. (It's also great fun to match Goleman's descriptions of the "emotionally inept" with loathsome co-workers and family members.)

5.0 von 5 Sternen The true road to the unconscious has been found, 22. November 1998
Von 
Daniel Goleman has produced, to my mind, the single most important book on emotional development and personal growth in the past three decades. The book stands out not only for the clarity of content, but for the contribution it makes to understanding why it is that we feel sudden emotion without any idea of where it came from and how we can help children develop into healthier, happier adults.
It is the only book I've recommended to my peers, my students and my patients. I have, in fact, made it MUST READING for my doctoral psychology students.

1.0 von 5 Sternen totally useless book...read hill's PMA book, 15. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
It's funny reading all these books by professors/academics that are now catching up to what has been written in many self-help books for the last fourty or fifty year.
Goleman and Seligman seem to make Emotional Intelligence and Learned optimism as some kind of great discovery...when all it is just plain common sense and rehashed works of Napoleon Hill and other self-help guru's.
I would dare anyone to read this book and read Napoleon Hill's Success with a positive mental attitude and see which they find more useful.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Feeling smart, feeling good..., 24. März 2006
Ever since I read Martin Gardiner's book on multiple intelligences, I have been intrigued by the study of how we learn and the different types of intelligence. No one disputes that mathematical/analytical brain-power is a very different type of intelligence from the kind of bodily intelligence that makes someone a graceful gymnast or a super athlete; while there is often some cross-over between the kinds of intelligence that make for good mathematicians and good musicians, the kinds of intelligence that are brought to bear on different parts of our lives get developed in different ways.
One of the more controversial and overlooked types of intelligence is Emotional Intelligence. I do not agree with the idea that one's EQ is in some way opposite from the IQ, the standard intelligence quotient idea (which in and of itself is calculated and reliant on different criteria depending upon the test). I don't believe that Goleman ever makes such a dramatic claim as to show a precise inverse relationship between the EQ and IQ. He does show that there are different kinds of difficulties that can arise, and that a high IQ does not necessarily (or even often) translate into a high EQ.
After a brief introduction exploring the general issues of intelligence and the power of emotions, Goleman
looks at new discoveries in brain anatomy and architecture, particularly as it pertains to what happens when emotions `take over'. The second, and longest, section of the book looks at the nature of Emotional Intelligence. This is being able to understand oneself as well as others, being able to control emotions (or not), and drawing on Aristotle's phrase from the Nicomachean Ethics, being able to have the right degree of emotion at the right time for the right reason for the right duration. Goleman's third section incorporates the general ideas of Emotional Intelligence into the broader context of living, stating that one's emotional intelligence is in fact a more critical factor than pure computational intelligence at being `successful' in many important parts of life - from personal relationships to professional relationships, self-satisfaction and self-growth, emotions often hold sway over traditional `intelligence'. The fourth section examines developmental issues, leading to the final section exploring what happens when such development goes wrong.
Goleman's observation that children seem to be increasingly depressed, despondent, violent and unruly than in the past may or may not be accurate - unfortunately, such comparisons with the past often rely on shaky anecdotal evidence or studies whose parameters are different, and thus whose conclusions cannot be accurately compared. However, it certainly seems that these are true observations. Goleman warns of a coming crisis as unprepared children face an adulthood full of emotional stress and crises for which they have not developed coping skills. Goleman calls for more emphasis on emotional intelligence issues - anger management, conflict resolution, sense of self, etc. for school children to reduce violence and potential for crime.
Overall, this book presents interesting ideas. The idea of Emotional Intelligence is fairly new, and will no doubt be adapted and revised in the coming years. Goleman's task here may be less of a comprehensive overview rather than an introductory shout to the community that needs to address the issue.

I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand, I think Goleman has made a good case for broadening our view of "intelligence" to encompass more than what is measured by an IQ test. And I strongly agree with him that we need to educate children emotionally as well as intellectually.
On the other hand, both the author and the journalists who have written about his findings have used them to support a false dichotomy: EQ is the opposite of IQ, highly intelligent people are emotional idiots, and so forth. He quotes, ad nauseam, the story of a high school student who, when his teacher gave him a B instead of the A he thought he deserved, shot the teacher. This perpetuates the stereotype that gifted children are lacking in EQ, which other studies have shown is NOT the case -- in fact, they tend to be hyper-responsible, sensitive to the feelings and wishes of others, and prone to blame themselves rather than others when things go wrong in their lives (gifted teenagers commit suicide at a higher rate than average teenagers).
Gifted children have it hard enough already: they're considered "nerds" and "freaks" by their peers, and expected to be perfect at everything by their parents and teachers; but they're not supposed to have problems (in or out of school) because, after all, they're GIFTED. Labeling them (falsely) as emotionally deficient, and asserting that there's some fundamental conflict between IQ and EQ, just makes things even harder for them.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Emotional Intelligence: Gender differences are useful, 17. Juni 1999
Emotional Intelligence, by Daniel Goleman, was a disappointment. Mr. Goleman's reporting on the physiology of emotion as well as some of the most recent research on the nature of emotional intelligence, was, simply put, outstanding. He clearly makes his case that Emotional Intelligence is a valid extension of Dr. Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory and therefor worthy of investigation.
However, what I found disturbing was the way in which Mr. Goleman utilized different emotional strategies employed by females and males as an opportunities to demean and negatively stereotype men. Beginning with his description of the gender differences for high-IQ pure types on page 44, Mr. Goleman lapses into a subtle but never ending stream of derogatory descriptions of male emotional strategies.
I found it both humorous and sad that Dian Tice, upon finding that "A large proportion of men translate (cooling down) as going for a drive", she has been "inspired" to drive more defensively. It's ironic that Psychologists and Sociologists bemoan the difficulty in securing male participants in their studies when they go to such great pains to belittle them afterward.
Is it possible, Mr. Goleman, that there are emotional gender differences, both valid and useful, that are key to the rich tapestry of humanity? Or, is Emotional Intelligence a "monolithic" intelligence in which men are doomed to languish? One wonders.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book 2000 years overdue!, 24. Juni 1999
Von 
Charles D. Hayes (Wasilla, AK USA) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
Daniel Goleman's book "Emotional Intelligence" shows how the undervaluation of emotion has wreaked pathological havoc on America. Divorce, depression, aggression, chronic anger, violence, ruined careers, and poor health are the evidence. When you think about it, in a "postmodern world" where "reason" seems to be in perpetual danger of drifting into chaos, it seems inevitable that the value of emotion would become a meaningful topic. The truth is, of course, that emotions have always been far more significant and consequential than the high-reasoning side of our culture has been willing to acknowledge. It is a great paradox that generations of suppressed emotions would lead to a backlash of overvaluation of the notion that emotions are something one is not responsible for--that when we're overcome by emotion, nothing can be done about it. Emotional outrage often becomes the basis of successful criminal defense strategies. On the other hand, millions of people do not realize that feelings are to life experience as a wet finger is to wind direction, and that emotion is also a veritable societal barometer. The key to emotional intelligence is equilibrium. In a postmodern world, emotional intelligence is equilibrium. Highly recommended.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I highly recommend this book to parents and educators., 20. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Goleman's book successfully educates the reader on the importance of emotional intelligence and provides some insight into how our society has gone wrong in raising our children.
Everyone knows someone who is book smart but doesn't seem to possess common sense. Despite their intelligence they lack the skills needed to have successful relationships and a happy life. Goleman defines these skills in a succinct way so we can finally define what it means to be intelligent. Goleman proposes that we can instill this emotional intelligence in our children and provides the information needed to do so.
The violence that has erupted in our schools is top of mind in both educators and parents. This book is highly insightful for those searching for the answers. It explains why youth are more depressed, violent and aggressive than ever. Goleman spends a chapter explaining how emotional literacy can be integrated into our schools. He proposes that these programs will get to the root of our nation's problem and provide the long-term results that we so desperately need. I highly recommend this book to parents and educators and anyone else who thinks we as a society can do a better job raising our children.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Goleman's research analysis fails miserably, 28. Mai 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Daniel Goleman tries to force a large body of research on IQ and emotions to fit neatly into the theory that IQ and EQ are necessarily opposites. The evidence presented is luckily cited at the end of the book so that we can clearly see that his conclusions are wrong. It is too bad that a pretty good idea such as emotional intelligence has to be brought down a peg because Goleman combed through the available research to support his theory instead of working on a useful study of his own. The EQ idea has merit on its own and need not be considered as separate, let alone the oppostite of, IQ. The extreme cases that are cited in the book only serve to make us more skeptical of the EQ concept. Example from the book: Goleman states that "Temperment is not Destiny" and then cites as evidence tramatic childhood experiences and the fact that infants can outgrow timidity. Not the sort of evidence I would accept in order to have my child's school implement a program to "reschool my child's emotions".

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book that could change our lives, our children, our world!, 13. Juni 1996
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Emotional Intelligence (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Goleman provides information essential for anyone with children, who teaches children, who knows children, and for those who wish to understand themselves better.
The information presented in this book clearly illustrates that intelligience goes far beyond what society has always presented in the terms of "IQ" and shows that a
realistic matter of determining what intelligience truly is depends on the ability to understand, acknowledge, and use social and emotional skills. As an educator
and psychotherapist, I feel this book is outstanding and can be used on all levels, from beginners to advanced practioners, as a guide in understanding our emotional
and social states and to provide our children with the skills required to succeed in life and perhaps change the world. What we have always considered as "intelligience"
still remains to be important, but we must know that there is much more to it and Goleman gives us a book to provide us with a starting point. It is a must read!!!!!
