‘Is Intelligence Overrated?’
Research by the Carnegie Institute of Technology revealed that even in technical industries such as Engineering, only around 15% of your financial success will be down to your technical knowledge; shockingly, the remaining 85% will be down to your skill in ‘human engineering’ in other words, your interpersonal intelligence and your ability to influence. The highest paid people are not those who know the most, the highest paid people are those who possess one of the most valuable skills in business, their ability to influence others. And it’s a powerful commodity all companies seek and pay millions for.
The Physical Side of Influence
How the world’s most powerful and successful people approach situations where failure is not an option.
Throughout our lives we are told not to judge a book by its cover, yet we all do it, every day, on a powerful subliminal level. We are hardwired to create a first impression in less than one second! Positive or negative, it will instantly influence how we assess another person’s overall authority, confidence, competence and trustworthiness.
You may think your personality and character has no place in negotiations or discussions since you can influence others on an intellectual level – deliver the facts, figures, evidence, and people will make an informed, logical decision based solely on the merits of your argument. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth, why? Because the reality is, people buy people first; it’s how we’re hardwired, and if we don’t like the ‘messenger’ on a powerful subliminal level, we’ll be very resistant to their message.
We’re constantly told from a young age that working hard will help us achieve success. If that was true, we all know people who should be far more successful than they are. The fact is people work hard at the top and the bottom. Of course, working hard is important, but to reach the upper echelons of success, you have to be strategic about it.
Before I ‘buy’ whatever it is you’re ‘selling’ there’s something far more important I need to buy first…you.
