Everything humans occupy themselves with in life, requires a response. This is the science of the unique interplay between the task and the man , in which the man is the responder and the task is the challenge. This dynamic acts as the mechanism for ignition of volition (the will to act and respond to life challenges).
This volition in relation to responsiveness is referred to
as Occupational Intelligence.
There are several intelligences that have been identified by mankind, starting in the 1800’s. The first modern IQ test was performed by Alfred Binet and Theodore Simon in 1904. The IQ test consists of several components, testing the response of the recipient to logical reasoning, pattern-finding, memory, mathematics and spatial recognition.
Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer coined the term 'Emotional Intelligence' or EQ in 1990 describing it as “a form of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one's own and others' feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use this information to guide one's thinking and action”.
Amongst other intelligences (such as social, practical or spiritual), IQ and EQ are both important intelligences that, when developed and nurtured, contribute to the augmentation of human development. However, in the modern, dynamic present within an ever-changing world; there is another intelligence that needs to be awakened and stimulated…Occupational Intelligence (OI).
