There Are Proven Steps You Can Take to Improve Your Emotional Intelligence and Enjoy More Fulfillment in Life
No matter what your IQ level, if you have struggled to succeed in some way there is some good news.
Your mental intelligence, also known as your intelligence quotient or IQ, may not be nearly as important as your emotional intelligence
It's true. All your life you've been taught to increase your IQ so you can get ahead. It has erroneously been believed for most of modern human history that a high IQ leads to a better quality of life. The thinking is that the more intelligent you are, the smarter the decisions you will make regarding everything.
It seems to make sense, on the surface. If you aren't very smart, the belief is that you will make decisions that aren't very smart. This can lead to failed relationships in business and at home, which means you will never achieve all that you can.
Since most of us do not enjoy a high IQ, this could be a real problem. However, groundbreaking research into what drives success in your career and home life tells us we have been on the wrong path to goal achievement and relationship improvement.
Listen to what Dr. Patty Ann Dublin, Emotional Intelligence and Communication Corporate Consultant and best-selling author, has to say about IQ and emotional intelligence:
"Arguably, a high level of emotional intelligence trumps a high level of IQ every time. No one really cares how smart you are if you cannot get along with people. If people find you to be abrasive, divisive, and/or obnoxious, your career in business will take a direct hit as a consequence of your behavior. No one will want to work with you – or for you. You're not that smart that people will be willing to tolerate you making them feel miserable, stupid, and angry or any other negative emotion that no one in their right mind wants to experience."
Simply put, emotional intelligence is your ability to recognize and understand your feelings, as well as those of others, and then use that understanding to successfully motivate yourself and others, and manage emotions and relationships.
Think of emotional intelligence as EQ. Your IQ gives you a rough idea about how mentally intelligent you are, and your EQ describes how emotionally capable you are (your emotional quotient as opposed to your intelligence quotient).
When you think about it, what is more important in cultivating and maintaining great relationships? Your emotions are dramatically more influential than your intelligence level on the relationships you have at home and on the job.
This means if you can develop a high level of emotional intelligence, any time you interact with another person you can make that interaction beneficial for both you and the party you are dealing with.
There are many studies showing the many great benefits of high emotional intelligence, here is just a glimpse…
Studies show that people with higher emotional intelligence testing scores are more socially competent and enjoy higher-quality relationships (Brackett, Warner, &Bosco, 2005; Brackett et al., 2006a; Lopes, Salovey, Coˆte´, & Beers, 2005; Lopes et al., 2003, 2004)
"Results of our study proved that there exists a positive relationship between self-esteem and emotional intelligence" (Relationship between Emotional Intelligence and Self Esteem among Pakistani University Students, Bibi, et al, 2016)
"TalentSmart tested emotional intelligence alongside 33 other important workplace skills, and found that emotional intelligence is the strongest predictor of performance, explaining a full 58% of success in all types of jobs"
"International search firm Egon Zehnder International analyzed 515 senior executives and discovered that those who were strongest in emotional intelligence were more likely to succeed than those strongest in either IQ or relevant previous experience"
According to a report published by Yale University researchers, "the most common complaints that lead people to psychotherapy are anxiety and depression. The skills associated with emotional intelligence, therefore, should help individuals to deal effectively with unpleasant emotions and to promote pleasant emotions in order to promote both personal growth and well being"
The issue is that so many people don't know how to better understand and manage their emotions.
If you don't know how to ramp up your emotional intelligence, the following scenarios are going to be very familiar to you:
When you truly understand the ins and outs of emotional intelligence, your relationships, and emotional wellness improve dramatically. You stop "bumping your head up against the wall" trying to understand other people, and why they do what they do.
You begin to understand and manage your emotions and self-regulate in proactive and positive ways.
You advance on the job and in your career much more effortlessly than if you do not have great emotional intelligence skills.
Any time you interact with someone, you know how to look for verbal and nonverbal cues that reveal what someone is really "saying", rather than that what they may verbally be saying.
You enjoy less stress and anxiety because it is as if a veil is lifted from your life, revealing the real meaning, true intentions, and core emotional influences that are driving your behaviors, and the behaviors of other people.
