#097: Emotional Intelligence

October 09, 2015

The Ancient Greek aphorism “know thyself” is one of the Delphic maxims and was inscribed in the forecourt of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. (You may also remember it from “The Matrix” when the Oracle meets Neo for the first time.) Learning to recognize our own emotions and those of others — along with managing them effectively — forms the crux of episode #97. Jesse is joined by Professor Con Stough, who returns for his second outing on Smart Drug Smarts, for a candid conversation about the emotional aspects of intelligence.

Also in this episode Jesse shares some speculation about inheritance. Sometimes you may get more than just what the last will and testament states.
