The Real Value of Emotional Intelligence Infographic
Emotional intelligence is often forgotten because most people wrongfully think that your intelligence quotient, or IQ, is more important. In reality, once you are out of school your IQ means nothing. The good news is that if you are lacking in the emotional intelligence department you can learn. Things like self-awareness, self-motivation, empathy, motivation, and social skills are skills that can be practiced and eventually mastered. Having a high emotional quotient will get you a lot farther in life than you might expect - people like Oprah Winfrey and Jeff Bezos are well known for getting to where they are with their emotional skills. People with a higher EQ can make on average $30,000 more a year than people who have a low EQ, and 90% of top performers have high emotional intelligence.
