Off the Cliff

  
From Susan Pinker’s article “Slower and Wiser: How Intelligence Shifts with Age” in today’s WSJ. 

The verdict: our mental hard drive peaks early but our emotional intelligence begins to soar from age 40 on. We might start forgetting just about everything we read, but we can read a person’s emotional state by looking at their eyes. 

Good news, right?
