Since 1990, Clinical Psychologists, Organizational Psychologists, and Medical doctors have been proving that there are personal characteristics called emotional intelligence which are responsible for the ways we behave, how we feel, how we relate to others, how well we do at our jobs, & how healthy we are.

Not knowing your emotional intelligence tendencies can result in being incompatible with other people, not being happy with your job, not succeeding at your job, & being physically unhealthy - with stress-related problems.

Knowing your emotional intelligence gives you the opportunity to position yourself to be with people you are naturally compatible with, & to seek out jobs that naturally fit you. You can also understand what makes you incompatible with certain people or jobs & learn ways to deal with the natural difficulties. You can understand the specific things that cause you stress & learn ways to become more at peace.

Like standard intelligence (IQ), emotional intelligence (EI) is a function of the brain. IQ is made up of abilities such as math calculation, memory, vocabulary, word use, etc. It involves primarily the neo cortex or top portion of the brain.

Emotional Intelligence is made up of emotional drives & behavioral tendencies that are motivated by feelings. A few examples are optimism, work ethic, courage, consideration for others, & sociability. Emotional Intelligence involves the lower & central emotional section of the brain - called the limbic system.

Dear srini,

Since we are discussing on the issue of “Emotional Intelligence”, it just reminded me of the days when employees were judged on their “Intelligence Quotient” (IQ), which has been taken over by “Emotional Quotient” (EQ or EI), the concept which has been raging thru the minds of every HR professional these days. But did you know that the “Spiritual Quotient” ie. “SQ”, as they say is also the buzzword these days which has been given due significance alongwith the above mentioned quotients for personal & professional success.
