Research on intelligence has a long history and is one of the most established streams of research within the literature on individual differences. During this time, various conceptualizations and types of intelligence have been proposed, along with different instruments to measure them. In this chapter, we will briefly review intelligence research, with particular attention to general intelligence (IQ), emotional intelligence (EQ), and multiple intelligences. Moreover, we will discuss organizational research that considers the role of different intelligences, especially with respect to job performance. We will also consider ethical issues in intelligence research and propose future research directions. Overall, this chapter considers the role of intelligence in organizational contexts.
