I was born in Stockton, California, on March 7,the leading tip of the tidal wave of post-war baby boomers I must have been conceived just around the time of V-E day, the end of World War II in Europe, June 6, My parents were college professors, my father taught in the humanities—including Latin and a course on world literature—at what became San Joaquin Delta Community College the library there is named after him ; my mother was a social worker who taught in the sociology department of what is now the University of the Pacific.
Perhaps because I was president of my high school, I received a scholarship for leadership from the Alfred P.
In part due to culture shock and taking advantage of the then-new Amherst Independent Scholar programI transferred to the University of California at Berkeley for my junior year and part of my senior year, returning to Amherst to graduate.
At Berkeley, where I was an anthropology major, I was lucky enough to have several remarkable professors, including a graduate seminar with the brilliant sociologist Erving Goffman on rituals of social interaction.
When I returned to Amherst, I wrote my honors paper on mental health in historical, anthropological and social perspectives, graduating magna cum laude—a miracle given my disastrous academic performance there my freshman year.
The Ford Foundation was generous enough to give me a scholarship to Harvard, where I enrolled in the program in clinical psychology in what was then the Department of Social Relations. I was drawn to the idea of studying the human mind from an interdisciplinary perspective; the department included anthropology and sociology together with psychology.
My main mentor there was David C. McClelland, best-known for his theory of the drive to achieve. Just at this time McClelland was developing and championing methods for assessing the competencies that distinguished star performers from average—a body of research I was to return to later in my career.
I had been a meditator since my junior year in Berkeley, and was intrigued by finding theories of the mind and its development that were still in active use after two thousand years or more and which had never been mentioned in any psychology course I had taken.
When I returned to Harvard, my doctoral research was on meditation as an intervention in stress arousal. I then received a post-doctoral grant from the Social Science Research Council to return to Asia and continue my studies of these ancient psychologies, spending time both in India and Sri Lanka.
I wrote what became my first book, now called The Meditative Mind, summarizing my research on meditation. I returned to Harvard as a visiting lecturer, teaching a course on the psychology of consciousness—a topic of intense interest back then in the s.
Because it was so heavily enrolled, the class was moved from a small room to one of the largest lecture halls on campus. George Harris, the editor.
This was an unexpected jog in my career path—I had always thought I would be a college professor like my parents. But writing appealed to me, and at the magazine I went through a tutorial in journalism that was to set the course of the rest of my career.
Recruited by the New York Times to cover psychology and related fields, in I began a twelve-year sojourn. I learned much about science journalism from my editors and colleagues, a talented crew on the science desk, and the Times offered remarkable access and visibility.
But I found that my urge to write about ideas with impact sent me in directions that did not always fit what the Times saw as news. This was especially so with the rich trove of research on emotions and the brain, which I had covered in small bits and pieces over the years for the times.
I felt the topic deserved to be a book, and so Emotional Intelligence came to be. To my surprise, the book ended up being hugely successful. I got so many requests to lecture that I had less and less time for writing in the Times. I finally left the paper to devote my efforts to the message of the book.Stan Getz Community is a great place if you're a Stan Getz fan, a jazz lover, jazz historian or just curious.
