Mayer proposed a new theory of personal intelligence proposing that people use their abilities to problem solve in four areas:
- To identify clues to personality
- To use those clues to form (sometimes) accurate models of people (both of oneself and others)
- To use information about personality to guide oneself and others
- To systematize one’s plans and goals
Mayer, concluded that “no coherent tests existed to measure that reasoning and that —such an assessment still did note exist to measure his theory. I love the term Personal Intelligence, it is more effective a lable than Emotional Intelligence. As for Mayer’s proposed abilities, I think the Golden is perfectly designed to measure and execute them. What do you think?
