Emotional quotient versus intelligence quotient

(EQ) DefinitionEmotional Intelligence Your ability to use both emotions and cognitive skills in your life. Susan Dunn

Emotional Intelligence refers to the capacity for recognizing your own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships. Daniel Goleman

Definition (IQ)IQ is primarily used to measure one's cognitive abilities, such as the ability to learn or understand new situations; how to reason through a given problem/scenario; the ability to apply knowledge to one's current situations

IQ A number that signifies the relative intelligence of a person; the ratio multiplied by 100 of the mental age as reported on a standardized test to the chronological age.

It involves primarily the neo cortex or top portion of the brain.Over 140 Genius or almost genius 120 - 140 - Very superior intelligence (Gifted) 110 - 119 - Superior intelligence 90 - 109 - Average or normal intelligence 80 - 89 - Dullness 70 - 79 - Borderline deficiency in intelligence Under 70 - Feeblemindedness

Question: T/ F ... Once my sobs and tears have been released, I feel great.

For unless you are able to feel sadness (and its relatives: sobbing, grief and tears), you will forever be avoiding sadness. Avoidance makes you prone to addictive behavior, psychosomatic symptoms, high levels of anxiety and acting-out skewed behavior.

How can EQ Help?To be successful and survive in today's society, individuals need to have the necessary communication and organizational skills to make sound decisions and interact with each other. Goleman argues that an individual's success at work is 80 percent dependent on emotional quotient and only 20 percent dependent on intelligence quotient. This is because EQ components are useful in assisting employees with decision-making in areas like teamwork, inclusion, productivity, and communication.

EQ versus IQ Basis in hiringThere are multiple aspects to emotional intelligence, but homing in on these three in the interview process will go a long way toward identifying candidates with high EQ--and eliminating those likely to destroy more value than they create:

Self-awareness and selfregulation The candidate understands the needs and wishes that drive him and how they affect his behavior. He regulates his emotions so that any fear, anger, or anxiety he experiences doesn't spread to his colleagues or make him lose control.

Reading others and recognizing the impact of his behavior on them The candidate has well-

developed emotional and social "radar" and can sense how his words and actions influence his colleagues.

The ability to learn from mistakes He can acknowledge his mistakes, reflect critically upon them, and learn from them.

IQ and genius=SQ IQ and EQ give way to spiritual intelligenc e, the ultimate intelligenc e that can add value and meaning to your life

EIGHT SIGNS OF HIGH SQ 1. Flexibility 2. Self-awareness 3. An ability to face and use suffering 4. The ability to be inspired by a vision 5. An ability to see connections between diverse things 6. A desire and capacity to cause as little harm as possible 7. A tendency to probe and ask fundamental questions 8. An ability to work against convention

Spiritual quotient

" explains Ram Mohan, a

Vedanta teacher, "is about the growth of a human being. It is about moving on in life. having a direction in life and being able to heal ourselves of all the resentment we carry. It is thinking of ourselves as an expression of a higher reality. It is also about how we look at the resources available to us,

Arnand Tendolkar, a workshop leader, says:

"For me spiritual intelligence is about pondering over my life's purpose. Spiritual intelligence motivates people to

balance their work schedules to spend time with the family.

The transformative power of SQ IQ primarily solves logical problems. EQ allows us to judge the situation we are in

and behave appropriately. SQ allows us to ask if we want to be in that situation in the first place. It might motivate us to create a new one. SQ

has little connection to formal religion. Atheists and humanists may have high SQ while someone actively religious may not.
