This is the "person-to-person" intelligence. Have you ever noticed how you feel smarter when you're with others than when you're by yourself? PeopleSmart involves the ability to work cooperatively in a group as well as the ability to communicate, verbally and non-verbally, with other people. It is the intelligence by which we develop empathy for another's feelings, fears, anticipations, and beliefs.

Tips to awaken your own PeopleSmart:

• Get into different structured situations in which reliance on other people is required for the successful completion of a project.

• Practice listening deeply and fully to another person. Cut off the “mind chatter” that often occurs when you are listening to someone else talk, and stay focused only on what they are saying.

• Try to guess what someone else is thinking or feeling based on various nonverbal clues, then check you accuracy with that person.

• Explore different ways to communicate with someone else; for example, facial expressions, body posture, gestures, and sounds
