We’ve all heard of it, and we all know what it is – for the most part, but sometimes we don’t really acknowledge it like we should. Your EQ, or emotional IQ is a lot easier to change than your IQ is, and thanks to that information, and some really great studies, the results have shown that people who have a higher-than-average EQ actually experience a better quality of life than those who simply have a high IQ. That being said, here are some reasons that you may want to improve your EQ, as well.
The four main pillars to supporting a healthy emotional intellect are these:
- High EQ people are self-aware. They track their emotions and thoughts logically, back to the source, rather than letting them run the show.
- High EQ people conduct self-management. That means they can delay gratification, rein themselves in, account for the needs of others, and well – just be great managers of life.
