Emotional Intelligence: Science and Myth by wolfhnd on May 17th, 2009, 1:56 am
Emotional Intelligence: Science and Myth
by Gerald Matthews, Moshe Zeidner, and Richard D. Roberts; Cambridge, Massachusetts, MIT Press, 2002, 736 pages,

So what do the authors conclude from their exhaustive efforts? Is emotional intelligence something new? Is it distinct from existing measures of individual difference? Or is it old wine in new bottles? They conclude with a cautious pessimism about the utility of emotional intelligence. They find serious psychometric limitations with all published measures of emotional intelligence. They are not optimistic about the prospects for developing a coherent, empirically supported theory of emotional intelligence. They suggest that the applied benefits of the construct are limited, especially in the clinical arena, "where the principle of taking emotions seriously is already ingrained." Although they believe that the popularity of emotional intelligence seems to be based more on myth than on science, they urge readers not...

Muhammad during Battles by Hendrick Laursen on September 2nd, 2014, 3:46 pm
There are many things to be discussed, but I prefer to start discussing with prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) War Behaviors and Moralities. Note that as I’m quoting from Arabic reference books, some of these names might be written in another spelling in other English books or websites. I'm writing nothing from myself, it's all the result of my 10-hours study from Reliable Islamic reference history books. I'll cite as I write. You can search all the keywords in Wikipedia, for further studying.
Muhammad’s amnesty, forgiving and mercy on his enemies are somehow stunning as follows:

1) In the Battle of Hunayn, not only he forgave the majority of his adversary forces, he returned back their goods (taken during the war) and freed their captives, he forgave Malik bin 'Awf, the head of the Hawazin tribe, and gave him 100 camels –while he was still infidel.
After Malik accepted Islam, Muhammad appointed him as the head of the Muslims of Hawazin and Bani-Sa’ad tribes, who were – as Ibn- Hisham writes – ov...

A Theory of Three Personality Types by AKH on April 12th, 2011, 8:25 pm
Suppose that people created the reality in reflection of their 'personality type', then all the drives, and tendencies, mis-directed ego impulse and bad scripting would make perfect sense.

I am not proposing that we create reality in any metaphysico-delusionistic, I-wish-I-was-in-Oz, kind of way.

I am talking about creating reality by way of deciding how to perceive the world. Once the basic premise of creating our realities is accepted, everything about personality and behavior makes perfect sense.

This is, in fact, the starting point of the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers) i.e. that all personality can be found in one of three characteristic ways of perceiving the world.

Psychology and psychiatry texts make constant reference to type A/B/C personalities and their interactions. We are somewhat along those same lines. For us, those references have evolved into our Wakefield...
