Positive intelligence provides answers to most of our pressing questions: Why do most dieters succumb to yo-yo dieting? Why is our increased happiness so fleeting after we achieve what we thought would bring lasting happiness? Why do new leadership skills acquired in workshops soon give way to old habits? Why do expensive team-building retreats only result in temporary blips in team cohesion and performance? What kind of torture and punishment is this! Indeed we’re being tortured and punished, but this torture is “”self-inflicted.” Your mind is your best friend, but it’s also your worst enemy. Positive Intelligence measures the relative strength of these two modes of your mind. High Positive Intelligence means your mind acts as your friend far more than as your enemy.

It should be relatively easy to see how your level of Positive Intelligence determines how much of your true potential you actually achieve.
