We’re going to talk about I.Q. v. E.Q. USU professors Jacob Freeman and Jacopo Baggio, along with UT-San Antonio professor Thomas Coyle, are studying the dynamics of nerds and poets. They want to understand the best brew of nerdiness and sensitivity to create teams that get things done. How can people work better together and why do some groups work well under pressure and some groups don’t? Professors Freeman and Baggio will join us to discuss the differences between I.Q. and emotional and social intelligence. They say that researching how different intelligences work together is especially important in a high-stakes world where natural resources are diminishing rapidly.

Jacob Freeman is USU Assistant Professor of Anthropology. Jacopo Baggio is Assistant Professor in the USU Department of Environment and Society. Thomas Coyle is Professor Psychology at the University of Texas at San Antonio.
