What is Emotional Intelligence?
Intelligence is not limited to the knowledge of facts and the ability to think with sound logic. It also includes our capacity to recognize our own emotions and those of others. We should be able to differentiate between various feelings and manage our emotions to adapt to our environment. Once we master ourselves, we can get into a better position to achieve our goals. This mastery is referred to as Emotional Intelligence or EI. The measure of it is called Intelligence Quotient or EQ. These terms are often used interchangeably.
