Humans take most of their decisions emotionally. Even our responses and reactions depend on emotions. The effect of which can be seen everywhere in life. But sometimes, along with emotions, practical approach is also very important. Therefore, it is not right to get carried away by emotions, rather emotional intelligence or emotional quotient (EQ) comes in handy here.

Both emotional intelligence and IQ are important for a person’s success. IQ is the understanding of knowing, understanding and executing. Emotional intelligence is the art of understanding and handling one’s own and others’ emotions. In such a situation, just like IQ, it is also important to recognize the strength of EQ. By understanding this, no one can stop you from achieving success in life.

Why is EQ important?

Emotional Intelligence helps a person to take decisions in difficult situations, deal with stress, communicate properly with anyone, have empathy and control personal feelings. However, it is more important for today’s generation than the older generation. Because people of this generation take decisions quickly but regret it later.
