Bus/Financial - Management / meaning quotient
English term or phrase: The longest list of words
While IQ and EQ are absolutely necessary to create the conditions for peak performance, they are far from sufficient. {The longest list of words} we have compiled from executives’ answers to our peak-performance question over the last ten years has little to do with either of these categories. This third one describes the peak-performance experience as involving high stakes; excitement; a challenge; and something that the individual feels matters, will make a difference, and hasn’t been done before. We describe this third category as the meaning quotient (MQ) of work. When a business environment’s MQ is low, employees put less energy into their work and see it as “just a job” that gives them little more than a paycheck.

Explanation:
这里 the longest 是主观的观点,而不是一般客观的描述。也就是说这个 最长 是对于作者而言,并非真的 最长。这个用法和 for the longest time 相近,在特定的语境里指的是 "for what seemed like a very long time", "for a surprisingly long time"。

这里可以译作 从……答案中收集汇编而成的词汇列表惊人的长,并且……
