How High is Your Emotional Intelligence?

What Is Your EQ?

Emotional intelligence or EQ is the ability to recognize and understand your feelings.  Then use that to successfully motivate yourself and others, and manage emotions and relationships.

Think of emotional intelligence as EQ. Your IQ gives you a rough idea about how mentally intelligent you are, and your EQ describes how emotionally capable you are (your emotional quotient as opposed to your intelligence quotient).

When you think about it, what is more, important in cultivating and maintaining excellent relationships? Your emotions are dramatically more influential than your intelligence level on the relationships you have at home and on-the-job.

This means if you can develop a high level of emotional intelligence, any time you interact with another person you can make that interaction beneficial for both you and the party you are dealing with.


The Problem with Emotional Intelligence

The issue is that so many people don’t know how to understand better and manage their emotions.

If you don’t know how to ramp up your emotional intelligence, the following scenarios are going to be very familiar to you:

  • You are not connected and aware of your feelings or their sources
  • You don’t know how to self-regulate your emotional state
  • Your emotional vocabulary is limited
  • You misunderstand why other people act the way they do
  • You believe that other people just don’t know how to listen
  • You are always arguing with someone
  • You would rather ignore or abandon emotionally charged situations
  • Friendships and other close personal relationships suffer
  • You don’t know how to communicate your feelings  so that others understand you
  • People know you as the person that continually criticizes
  • You feel like everyone is way too sensitive
  • “Negative Nancy” is your nickname behind your back
  • You blame your lack of career success on others

It Doesn’t Have to Be This Way

When you truly understand the ins and outs of emotional intelligence, your relationships, and emotional wellness improve dramatically. You stop “bumping your head up against the wall” trying to understand other people, and why they do what they do.

You begin to manage your emotions and self-regulate in proactive and positive ways.

You have more success with your online dating match. You have more confidence about who to take to the next level of engagement. You’ll do this effortlessly with a new sixth sense about someone.

Any time you interact with someone, you know how to look for verbal and nonverbal cues that reveal what someone is really “saying,” rather than that what they may verbally be saying.

You enjoy less stress and anxiety because it is as if a veil is lifted from your life, revealing the real meaning, true intentions and core emotional influences that are driving your behaviors, and the behaviors of other people.


The skills involved in emotional intelligence are ones you can develop and practice.

First, you need emotional intelligence or EQ awareness. What better way to achieve this than with a little emotional intelligence test.

Becoming aware of your EQ score for you and your partners helps you to recognise when to stay or walk away. When to reflect and make some changes for you.
