MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Is the measure of an individual’s abilities to recognise and manage their emotions, and the emotions of other people, both individually and in groups.

Benefits of a higher EQ
  • Ease in forming and maintaining interpersonal relationships and in ‘fitting in’ to group situations.
  • A better understanding one's own psychological state, which can include managing stress effectively and being less likely to suffer from depression.

There is no correlation between IQ and EQ scores.

IQ has no connection with how people understand and deal with their emotions and the emotions of others (EQ). 

You simply can’t predict emotional intelligence based on how smart someone is.

Cultivating one's own emotional intelligence is a lengthy process and it is does not happen in an instant so concentrate on self-awareness:

  • Listen to your body and don't overwork yourself
  • Listen to your heart and connect words with emotions. It is important to know why you feel a certain way, what triggers certain behaviors and emotions, and figure out what you can do to better the situation
  • Be more understanding towards yourself and the unconscious behavior you may have not been noticing
