Abstract


Objective: This research aims to study the relationship between Adversity Quotient (AQ) with dominant intelligence quotients such as IQ, EQ, and SQ in the National Education Philosophy (NEP) among students in polytechnics. Methods/ Analysis: The research used survey with four sets of questionnaires to measure all types of intelligences. A total of 1,845 respondents involving five polytechnics were selected according to zone by using the proportionate clustered multistage stratified sampling technique. Findings: The study shows a moderate positive correlation of AQ relationship with EQ (r = 0.519, p = .000, N = 1845) and AQ with SQ (r = 0.485, p = .000, N = 1845). In addition, there is a very weak positive correlation (r = 0.019, p = .408, n = 1845) between AQ with IQ of polytechnic students in Malaysia. The follow ups are necessary to strengthen AQ with EQ and SQ through suitable program of self-development. Application/Improvement: This paper makes a significant contribution to correlating intelligences with the interval data using Rasch model. It also shows the effort to explore the potential of AQ in empowering students with other types of intelligences for polytechnic students in Malaysia. It gives a great recommendation where AQ can be a strong predictor to enhance EQ and SQ in increasing students’ performance.

Keywords
