Well, then why does it matter more?  In a nutshell:
Sensory intelligence® (SIQ) refers to the senses as the primitive, unconscious gateway through which emotion (EQ) and cognition (IQ) receive their information in order to feel, behave, think, act and perform.
It’s all in the brain; the human computer; where this hierarchy of processes stimulate our thinking, acting, feeling and doing. Information enters the brain via the senses through the spinal cord at the bottom part of the brain and gets filtered through the primitive brain (sensory intelligence) before being sent to the emotional brain (EQ) and lastly moves to the cognitive brain (IQ). Although neuroscientifically this process is intricate and multi-faceted, the baseline hierarchy is sensory intelligence first, then emotional intelligence and then IQ.
The senses thus have a silent but powerful contribution to how we focus, concentrate, perform, act in teams and manage stress and pressure.
