Emotional Intelligence is a More Reliable Parameter of Success Than IQ

Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is no longer the gold standard of a person’s ability to succeed. Emotional intelligence is being hailed as the quality essential for success.
From about a couple of decades, psychiatrists have developed the emotional quotient criterion, the new paradigm which could push the traditionally accepted Intelligence Quotient into oblivion.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

Psychologists describe emotional intelligence or Emotional Quotient (EQ) as consisting of the following:

  • The ability to face challenges by being aware of one’s own self;
  • Ability to find positive ways of dealing with stressful situations;
  • Communicating effectively and politely with others;
  • Empathizing with people;
  • Willingness to form healthier relationships by working closely with people;
  • Ability to use all these qualities to achieve success at work and in life.
