Emotional quotient (EQ) or emotional intelligence is the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself, of others, and groups. 

People with high EQ can :

  • Manage emotions;
  • Monitor emotions;
  • Label them appropriately;
  • Use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior;
  • Use them for positive thinking;
  • Identify, evaluate, control, and express their own emotions;
  • Understand emotional meanings. 

People with high EQ generally achieve more, excel at teamwork and service, and take more initiative. 

From an early age, encouraging qualities like sharing, thinking about others, putting oneself in another person’s shoes, giving space, and the general principles of cooperation can inculcate emotional awareness in children.

EQ is partially determined by how a person relates to others and maintains self-control. Through effective coaching, young and adults can also enhance their EQ.

Some strategies for teaching emotional intelligence include offering character education, modeling positive behaviors, encouraging people to think about how others are feeling, and finding ways to be more empathetic toward others.

Many people think EQ is only about being good at interconnecting with other people, which can be, but it starts with your self-perception and levels of self-awareness. The change will only happen when you are aware of emotions…✍️

A high EQ will get you through life.
