Earlier it was believed that people with high IQ could alone become successful in personal,

academic, family and professional life.

Many people with high IQ may be productive and ambitious but found to be cold and detached.

People with EQ, even with average IQ have found to be more successful because they are

social, empathetic and cheerful’.

IQ is mostly determined by genetics and so it can not be changed drastically.

Research suggests it is responsible for as much as 80% of the "success" in our lives."
