In order to explain EQ (Emotional intelligence) it is important to understand how it fits in the spectrum of intelligences

IQ (Intellectual or rational intelligence) it is what we use to solve logical or strategic problems. Psychologists devised tests for measuring it and these became the means for scoring people into degrees of intelligence, that could allegedly signpost their abilities. The higher a persons IQ, the theory went, the higher their intelligence

EQ (Emotional intelligence) gives us our awareness of our own and other peoples feelings. It gives us empathy, compassion, motivation and the ability to respond appropriately to pain or pleasure. As Daniel Goleman pointed out, EQ is a basic requirement for the effective use of IQ

SQ is the intelligence with which we address and solve problems of meaning and value, the intelligence with which we can place our actions and our lives in a wider, richer, meaning giving content, the intelligence with which we can assess that one course of action or one life path is more meaningful than another

Simply put, EQ is the intelligent use of emotions. You intentionally make your emotions work for you by using them to help guide your behaviour and thinking in ways that enhance your results

“For most people, emotional intelligence (EQ) is more important than one’s intelligence (IQ) in attaining success in their lives and careers”

It is generally recognised that EQ is made up of five components or areas of competence:

  1. Self-Awareness
  2. Self-regulation
  3. Self-Motivation
  4. Social skills
  5. Empathy
