Social Intelligence Internet Training in Middle School

“I wish my parents could have had this course.”

“This has helped me to see how going deeper, like truly looking at someone and caring about them as a human being is different than just being nice to someone. I will pay more attention to seeing others deeper than superficially.”

It made me more self-aware in a positive way.  It also made me a little negatively self-aware, but helped me re-evaluate my behavior.  More people could benefit from that.”

“I approached a stranger and he simply looked past me as if I didn’t exist. It made me feel like I was invisible. I can’t say what the reasons were. He may have been distracted or he may simple do that with all strangers. I did say hi and that seemed to shake him into a new reality and we seemed to get friendlier. I did air gaze people in the past but I don’t intend to do it anymore. It just feels less awkward to make some connection with the other person.”

“The course has been very beneficial to my life! I have learned so much!”

Social Intelligence Internet Training Course Satisfaction Chart“I think THEM! and the unconscious brain [modules] were the most interesting. They helped me see the great importance our hidden prejudices and unconscious mental schemes have in regard to our social life.”

“Thanks for this course. Now I know how to be with people.” [18-year old, Diversion Program]

“It has changed my life entirely. I took notes and will refer to them often until I have accomplished the learned behaviors I am striving for.”

“The world could benefit. The course is about learning to live on the planet as a collective unit while respecting our differences.” 

“I love their approach for the older group of juveniles. It is not punitive, but rather, an informative approach to change. This is how I have tried to approach change with my probationers over my career. The goal is helping them see there is such a larger world out there in which they can participate and be a part of. I think this program addresses one of the most important aspects of what I see affecting the youth population today, namely, alienation.”  [John Stair, Executive Vice President, Arizona Probation Officers Association]

“(The course)…makes me hopeful that I can still change my thinking and behavior after 45 years of stereotypes and negativity.” 

“I really like this whole course. It is a constant reminder of how I want to behave, even though I fail frequently. Understanding that my default behavior is universal and hard-wired into my brain helps me not to beat myself up for my failures and to see others in a more understanding and compassionate way.” 

“We overcome obstacles/ways we were brought up by being intentional.  I especially enjoyed the video by the terrorist’s son and his testimony on how he decided to break the mold and be a better person and not hate others like he was taught to.” 

Metro-call-out

“I liked the course because I think it can really help to make people realize how we think, how we react, etc. And once we become aware we may be able to change our actions. So I think it is beneficial to every aspect of my life (my relationships, my attitude, my mental and emotional processes).”

“I will be able to apply (Social Intelligence) not only in my workplace, but I will be able to apply it from here with my friends and family.”

“In the past I have only acknowledged an out-group as a collection of people that I was not interested in unless they directly impacted me or made the news. Now I know I can make a conscious decision to see the group and the individuals within it, and act accordingly.” 

“I have learned many thing which will help me to have better relationships and to understand people around me. I am more patient with other opinions and actions. I am more open-minded.” 

“Nice reminder of humans as individuals, not objects.” 

“The course has prompted me to look at things differently. As a result, I am accomplishing more in less time. Eliminating self defeating behavior is liberating. YAY.”

“I’ve noticed students talking in the hallways about the concepts they are learning in the Social Intelligence Course.” [High school principal]

“This module has helped me to see how going deeper, like truly looking at someone and caring about them as a human being is different than just being nice to someone. I will pay more attention to seeing others deeper than superficially.”

“I have become aware of differences, and using human kindness as a base.”

“This course taught me how to relate to all types of people.”

“I love their approach for the older group of juveniles. It is not punitive, but rather, an informative approach to change.

“I enjoyed learning about neuroplasticity – science-based proof that change is possible and voluntary.”

“I loved all the real world examples.”

“I’ve been waiting for something to sink my teeth into and now I’ve found it. Thank you.”

“I learned how to help to tell and share the possibility of change.”

“This course taught me how to socialize. Thanks.”

“Well done!”
