According to Daniel Goleman, Emotional Intelligence can be described as a person’s ability to manage his feelings so that those feelings are expressed appropriately and effectively.
Emotional Intelligence or EI as commonly referred is the area of the cognitive ability which facilitates interpersonal relationships. People often give huge importance to Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and believes it to be a success factor. The Higher the IQ, the greater the success. But in the last decade, the concept of EQ or Emotional Quotient has gained popularity and is proven now that the emotional quotient of a person is equally or more important for his or her success.
As common intelligence can be developed, the same way the emotional quotient can also be learned and developed. If you want to improve your interpersonal relationship and intrapersonal communication, EI is the subject you must invest time in.
There are two types of Emotional Intelligent: Interpersonal and Intrapersonal.
#1. Interpersonal Emotional Intelligence
It relates to the ability to understand, acknowledge and regulate the emotions of others.
#2. Intrapersonal Emotional Intelligence
It relates to your ability to understand, accept and control your own feelings, fear, motivations, etc.
