Updated: Aug 10
When it comes to success in business, EQ eats IQ for breakfast reports Forbes magazine. The "Big Bang Theory" television show is a great example of this constant battle experienced between Sheldon Cooper and his friends.
What ís so special about EQ - Emotional Intelligence?
EQ identifies your level of success in four areas: self-awareness, social awareness, self management and relationship management. Psychology Today reports, "An emotionally intelligent individual is both highly conscious of his or her own emotional states, even negativity - frustration, sadness, or something more subtle - and able to identify and manage them." When you are that conscious of self, then you are able to tune in to others' emotions. It ís easy to see how a sensitivity to emotional signals from within and from the social environment could make one a better friend, parent, leader, or romantic partner.
