emotional intelligence

It is a person's ability to manage his feelings, according to psychologist Dr. Daniel Goleman.


The "emotional intelligence" term was popularized by Dr. Daniel Goleman in his book in 1995. Dr. Goleman examined emotional intelligence in five categories which are self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. He says, emotional intelligence is the largest single predictor of success in the workplace.


Emotional intelligence is measured by emotional intelligence quotient (EQ) test. Traditional IQ tests seek to evaluate an individual's ability to learn new information, while an EQ test focus on assessing soft skills, such as self-awareness, social awareness, relationship management and empathy.
