Interestingly enough, today's Dilbert strip (in the calendar) goes
[ Dilbert is lying in a sofa and Dogbert is standing on one side with
a stop-watch in his hand. ]
Dogbert: "Don't mind the stop-watch. I'm testing my theory that people
get dumber every minute."
Dilbert: "It's not so simple, Dogbert. You also have to consider my
"Emotional Intelligence," which is defined in a book I haven't read."
[ Dogbert stops his stop-watch. ]
Dogbert: "Twelve seconds."
Dilbert: "Give me that watch, you hog!"
daniel, told just yesterday that he was good at "hanging out"
with people. Both high IQ and high EQ? Could it be? :-P ;-)
