Taking the example of Navy Seals , more than performance the need is of a trustworthy individual.
A high performing individual low on trust spoils the environment and the team morale.
Whereas a highly trustworthy individual even though lacking in performance is much more in demand since IQ related to performance can be taught
EQ cannot be taught and is the most important prerequisite that a leader seeks in an individual to keep playing the infinite game
The ideal scenario is to have the balance between IQ and EQ
