ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the evaluation of social intelligence of individuals. According to psychologist Edward Thorndike, intelligence should not only be recognized of the abstract variety but of the mechanical or social manner as well. In relation, the George Washington University Social Intelligence Test by the university's psychology department is designed to evaluate the social intelligence by college students. The test consists of different parts that measure various factors in social intelligence, including judgment in social situations, name and face memory, identification of mental states from facial expressions and observation of human behavior.
