“One of the main criteria for high spiritual intelligence is being what psychologists call ‘field-independent’. That means being able to stand against the crowd, to hold an unpopular opinion if that is what I deeply believe... High SQ requires us to have a functioning ego and a health participation in the group, but both must be rooted in the deep centre of ourselves... I know who I am and what I believe. This is not egoism but true individuality, and it often requires great courage.”
