Managing Gen Z: Understanding the New Kids on the Block

In the latest episode of The Science of Personality, Ryne and Blake speak with Jean Twenge, PhD, professor of psychology at San Diego State University, about managing Gen Z in a special live episode of the podcast. It is easy to assume that baby boomers, Gen X, millennials, and Gen Z all differ significantly from each other as each generation entered the workforce under much different conditions. However, when it comes to personality, age often plays a powerful role in how individuals behave at work. Now that Gen Z is firmly established within the global workforce, does the same pattern hold true?

Career Successes and Inequalities

In the latest episode of The Science of Personality, Ryne and Blake are joined by Rong Su, PhD, Associate Professor of Management and Entrepreneurship and Mahoney Fellow at the University of Iowa, to talk about career successes and inequalities. It’s no secret that there is very broad spectrum of career outcomes. Some successfully climb the corporate ladder and attain significant wealth along the way while others find themselves struggling to make ends meet in jobs with nearly unlivable wages. But what really determines who is successful and who is not? 

IQ vs EQ

In the latest episode of The Science of Personality, Ryne and Blake talk about the differences between IQ and EQ. From a historical perspective, the term IQ, short for intelligence quotient, was coined in 1912 by psychologist William Stern. Conversely, the term EQ, short for emotional quotient or the more commonly used emotional intelligence, wasn’t really popularized until 1995 when Daniel Goleman released his book titled Emotional Intelligence. But that’s just the history of the terms. In all actuality, IQ and EQ have existed for all of human history. In this episode, Ryne and Blake dig a little deeper into what IQ and EQ actually are, how they are developed, and how they’re measured.
