The ABC triangle sits on one of its sides, with a point (Affect, for no good reason other than that A is the first letter of the alphabet) at the top.

It makes it clear that it is definitely not fixed but is something which can be learned, whereas – as we have already seen – the use of the word “intelligence” attracts to EI all the fallacies which tend to be attached in the popular mind to that concept. Even “emotional literacy” is not ideal because it suggests that what we are talking about is basically a set of skills, as the ordinary use of the word “literacy” suggests, and that would place it firmly in the top layer of our three-layered cake.

False fact no. 2 Intelligence is fixed; you are born more or less clever or stupid and remain that way for the rest of your life. This is the optimistic version. In practice it is worse than that: many aspects of cognitive intelligence seem to peak at around 20 years of age and then to decline year by year after that. However, analyses of emotional intelligence test data show that the opposite seems to be true of emotional intelligence, which appears to continue to rise throughout the years of working life – it seems we naturally develop our emotional intelligence through the University of Life.
