Review of Emotional Intelligence - StumbleUpon Review of Emotional Intelligence, by Daniel Goleman Kevin Langdon Published in Noesis #145, November 1999 Copyright © 1999 by Kevin Langdon When people are asked to rank the importance of various attributes, in themselves, in a potential mate, or in human beings in general, intelligence makes a respectable showing but it’s rarely at the top of the list.
