Emotion is defined as an affective state of consciousness in which feelings of joy, sorrow, fear, hate, love, etc. are experienced. In other words, an elevated experience of pleasure or displeasure. No wonder, historically, people did not speak of ‘emotions’ – the term used was ‘passions’. Emotional Intelligence (EQ), on the other hand, is a measure of emotional abilities, and how we positively or negatively manage and use these abilities.
This infographic discusses the science of EQ, the giants who have built our understanding of this key facet of human behavior, and the ongoing debate of EQ vs IQ.
