What’s Your EQ?

Empathy – the ability to understand and identify with another’s situation, feelings, motives.
Emotional Intelligence – the ability to understand your own emotions and those of people around you. To be emotionally intelligent means having a self-awareness that enables the recognition of feelings and helps you manage emotions.

At a personal level, it involves motivation and being able to focus on deferred goals rather than demanding immediate gratification. People with high emotional intelligence are also capable of understanding the situations and feelings of others. They are better at handling relationships of every kind.

EQ = Empathy quotient. Try this on-line questionnaire from Baron Cohen.

Remember: never take these kinds of tests (or theories) too seriously!
And for a contrarian point of view on Daniel Pink see Gary Stager- The Worst Book of the 21st Century.
