"Unlock the Treasure in Every Child" - March 7, 2022
This week our students will focus on learning about Social Intelligence.
Social Intelligence refers to a person’s ability to understand and manage interpersonal relationships. It is distinct from a person’s IQ or “book smarts.” It includes an individual’s ability to understand, and act on, the feelings, thoughts, and behaviors of other people. This type of intelligence can take place “in the moment” of face-to-face conversations
but also appears during times of deliberate thinking. It involves emotional intelligence and self-awareness.
The Parent virtue for Social Intelligence is Humanity. Strengths of humanity involve caring interpersonal relationships with others, particularly in one-to-one relationships. Strengths comprised in this virtue are love, kindness, and social intelligence.
