Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive emotions, access and generate emotions to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge, and reflectively regulate emotions to promote emotional and intellectual growth (Mayer & Salovey, 1997).
Research indicates that emotional intelligence can be learned and improved
through measurable differences directly associated with professional and personal success. Furthermore, it may be responsible for up to 80% of the success we experience in
EIQ is based on two competencies, measured as Recognition and Management:
- The ability to recognize, understand and manage emotions (self or intrapersonal)
- The ability to recognize, empathize and relate to the emotions of others (social or interpersonal)

The Self-Management Quotient adds to self-evaluation by coupling with self-regulation. The awareness and discipline to control and harness feelings directly impact one’s ability to achieve personal objectives and develop determination and drive. Satisfaction, happiness, and fulfillment are
known results of strong Self-Management.
This Quotient is one of four quotients that can measure emotional intelligence. The other three are
- Social Recognition
- Social Management
