Emotional intelligence (EI) or emotional quotient (EQ) is the capacity of individuals to recognize their own, and other people's emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior.
Emotional intelligence (EI) refers to the ability to perceive, control and evaluate emotions.
And the difference b/w sympathy and empathy. An important distinction.

Here's are 2 quick quizzes.

http://www.arealme.com/eq/en/?ag

I got 140.


And another quiz.

https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/ei-quiz.htm

I got 65.


Interpretation of 2nd quiz.

15-34
You need to work on your emotional intelligence. You may find that you feel overwhelmed by your emotions, especially in stressful situations; or, you may avoid conflict because you think that you'll find it distressing.

It's likely, too, that you find it hard to calm down after you've felt upset, and you may struggle to build strong working relationships.

Don't worry – there are plenty of ways that you can build emotional intelligence, starting now. Read our tips below to find out more.

35-55
Your emotional intelligence level is... OK.

You probably have good relationships with some of your colleagues, but others may be more difficult to work with.

The good news is that you have a great opportunity to improve your working relationships significantly. Read more below to boost your EI still further.

56-75
Great! You're an emotionally intelligent person. You have great relationships, and you probably find that people approach you for advice.
LOL just thought it would be fun to take the quizzes. :read:
I think we all know people who are very emotionally intelligent and those who are not. My MIL comes to mind haha but I digress. :lol:

Fun thread, missy! :appl:

I'll be back when I feel less guilty about procrastinating :lol:

(just a quick glance, I thought to myself - oh I'm definitely very aware of emotions, can pinpoint them, etc. so I must be very emotionally intelligent.

BUT THEN...I saw the part about letting emotions control you / overwhelm you, and avoiding situations for fear that they may be hard to deal with.

So not so fast I guess).

I'll be back!

Oh gosh, the first test was 60 LOL I guess I'm more vulcan than originally thought? :eh:

Too chicken to take the 2nd. But then again I don't really work around people. My friends like me though, I'm told I give no nonsense love and support without being a donkey's butt.

I got 145 on the first one. I was doubting how 'well' I'd do because of the kid questions and I don't have kids haha.

I got 44 on the second one. I'm definitely different at work than outside of work, so that might be the cause of the difference between the two scores. I actually hate working in groups - work, school, etc - and I think that played in to this too. Interesting!

Thanks for playing along Queenie, Telephone, Arcadian and maybe CJ. :bigsmile:

Arcadian, IDK this quiz merits anything in reality (well maybe a little) but what I love is we are all different and it works for each of us. And haha love your description of no nonsense love and support without being a donkey's butt. LOL. I can picture that right now. :lol:
