IQ or EQ, what complements intrinsic motivation?

IQ or Intelligence Quotient is related to Performance.Intelligence alone can be able to do things that are already known in a more efficient manner.

For doing “left brain” algorithmic tasks for which very less of collaboration and brain storming is needed , extrinsic motivation based rewards work as the best solution.

For doing right brain oriented work where collaboration and brain storming is the most essential pre-requisite intrinsic motivation acts as the catalyst for getting desired results.

Hence for doing right brain oriented work , EQ or emotional quotient which relies on trustworthiness in a person’s character is the most essential quality that is required.

Hence intrinsic motivation acts a a catalyst for ones who are high on emotional quotient(EQ)
