I watched a PBS video with my class on Emotional Intelligence (EQ). One finding reported was that people with high EQ tend to achieve more success in life than people with high IQ, but mediocre EQ.
So which do you have?
a high IQ, but mediocre EQ?
a mediocre IQ, but high EQ?
EQ - is a measure of your emotional intelligence, or your ability to use both your emotions and cognitive skills in your life. Emotional intelligence competencies include but are not limited to empathy, intuition, creativity, flexibility, resilience, coping, stress management, leadership, integrity, authenticity, intrapersonal skills and interpersonal skills.
IQ - a number used to express the apparent relative intelligence of a person that is the ratio multiplied by 100 of the mental age as reported on a standardized test to the chronological age. IQ is the measure of cognitive abilities, such as the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new situations; the skilled use of reason; the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one's environment or to think abstractly as measured by objective criteria (as tests); mental acuteness; logic and analytical skills.
EQ gets you through life vs. IQ gets you through school.

My IQ is higher than my EQ, I can see that now.
This is interesting, but it doesn't matter much to me. I think success is hard to define and that many factors go into a person having a sense of accomplishment or well being. I'm just not really sure that any of those factors are measurable. Seems like it's just another way of reducing humanity into social stereo-types.
As an introvert it seems that I am set up to fail with this eq/iq measure.
I'm a successful test taker and did well in school so my IQ is probably high (although I don't know what it is).
I don't know about EQ, but I agree with Slim that it is probably very subjective.
