Are You Emotionally Intelligent? Here's How to Know for Sure

Are You Emotionally Intelligent? Here's How to Know for Sure | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

When emotional intelligence (EQ) first appeared to the masses, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70 percent of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into the broadly held assumption that IQ was the sole source of success.

 

Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as being the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack. The connection is so strong that 90 percent of top performers have high emotional intelligence.

 

Emotional intelligence is the "something" in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions to achieve positive results.

An interesting article indeed, that tells us a lot about the importance of emotional intelligence (E.Q.). It is clear that a very high I.Q. devoid of the ability and skills requred to live in a world built out of a social fabric of relations does not indicate success! Taken in a social context, I.Q. + E.Q. = Success! And moreover, there is a mathematical logic to the same.

5 Signs You Have High Emotional Intelligence

Just how important is high emotional intelligence to business success? When L’Oreal started hiring sales people based on emotional competency, the high EQ reps outsold the traditionally chosen ones by over $90,000. Another company found emotionally skilled sales sold $54,000 more each. If you’re more convinced by research, study after study after study has linked EQ and career success.

 

Which is all fine and good, but these findings are only useful to you personally if it’s possible for you actually improve your EQ.

This is surely most interesting and of course most informative! Feels good to see some if not all the qualities in oneself! It is always important to know about the emotional intelligence of the person you are hiring for your organisation!

A hard look at your emotional skills and weaknesses is the first step to improving EQ, which is highly correlated with business success.
