Let's-Live Exam-Pads 5What is Emotional Intelligence?

Every human is unique physically, mentally, and emotionally. All the three factors are important in managing relationships within the family and with the world at large. Different people understand and project emotions in different ways which has an impact on the way they live their lives.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to evaluate your emotions and that of the others around you. It also helps you in adopting communication methods to effectively deal with it. This enables you to become more successful at work as well. It functions as the foundation for how you perceive people and the way you are perceived by them.

People with high emotional quotient make others feel good around them and tend to have lower levels of stress due to their ability to express what they are feeling. They do not easily get angry or upset and know how to deal with people who are feeling those emotions.

  • According to Daniel Goleman, there are 5 important elements of EQ:
  • Self-awareness – This is the ability to understand one’s own emotions and have control over them.
  • Self-regulation – This is the ability to think before acting on spontaneous reactions and emotions.
  • Motivation – People with a high EQ always remain positive and motivated, and are highly productive.
  • Empathy – It defines the ability to understand and identify the emotions of people around.
  • Social Skills – People with high EQ very easily get along with other people and are great team players.
