Eng. 100 - Sum. 190 Hafez, Fall '99 Directions: You have 45 minutes to read and summarize the following passage. The number of words in the passage is indicated in brackets, at the end of the passage. Your summary should be approximately one third the length of the original text. Emotional Intelligence and Destiny IQ tests offer little to explain the different destinies of people with roughly equal promises, schooling and opportunity. When ninety five Harvard students from the classes of the 1940s were followed into middle age, the men with the highest test scores in college were not particularly successful compared to lower scoring peers in terms of salary, productivity, or status in their field. Nor did they have the greatest life satisfaction, nor the most happiness with friendships, family, and romantic relationships. To be sure, there was a general link (as there always is) between IQ and socio-economic level. But childhood abilities such as being able to handle frustrations, control emotions, and get on with other people made the greater differences.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
