On March 12, 2009, a former chief of the New York Stock Exchange pled guilty to one of the largest financial frauds in history. Bernie Madoff, founder of his own financial firm and active philanthropist, had been swindling thousands of private investors—many of whom were close friends—out of billions of dollars. Madoff had achieved a degree of personal financial success few individuals ever attain, though he will be spending the rest of his life in prison. Would you consider Madoff an intelligent person? What role might emotional intelligence have played in his decision making?
For this Discussion, you define intelligence and detail its components. You also take a position on whether or not emotional intelligence is an accurate measure of intelligence.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post a brief definition of intelligence, including the main components of intelligence. Then provide your position on whether or not emotional intelligence is an accurate measure of intelligence. Justify your response with examples.
Support your response using at least scholarly 3 references. APA Format. 2-3 paragraphs.
It is easy to be taken in by cognitive biases, especially given that they operate at a subconscious or non-rational level. It is therefore important that we be aware of them. Accordingly, this week’s assignment will be a poster project in which you design warning posters. You will be creating three warning posters for three different cognitive biases. A warning poster might look something like this:
Begin by selecting three cognitive biases covered in this week’s reading or lectures. Using an online tool or application such as Microsoft Word, create three warning posters that explain the dangers behind the three cognitive biases you have selected. Each warning poster should contain the name of the cognitive bias, a very brief explanation of what it is, a message on how to avoid falling into it, and at least one image. All three posters should be different.
