What is EQ and why is it important for students to excel in their studies?

“Academic intelligence has little to do with emotional life. The brightest among us can founder on the shoals of unbridled passions and unruly impulses; people with high IQs can be stunningly poor pilots of their private lives.“EQ” stands for emotional Quotient”. It may be even more important than IQ in one’s ability to achieve success and happiness. We may score well on tests and excel academically, but how do we handle disappointment, anger, jealously and fear?Psychologists agree that IQ contributes only about 20 per cent of the factors that determines success. IQ being equal, EQ accounts for up to 85per cent of what sets star performers apart from the average-in work and personal life. A higher EQ significantly increases your competitive advantage and empowers you to perform at your best. It also determines your capacity to bring out the best in others.

The concept of emotional intelligent is to be applauded .Not because it is totally new but because it captures in one compelling term, the essence of what we need to know to be productive and happy in lives and in our careers.

 One of psychology’s open secrets is the relative inability of grades, IQ, or SAT scores, despite their popular mystique, to predict unerringly who will succeed in life. To be sure, there is a relationship between IQ and life circumstances for large groups as a whole: many people with very low IQs end up in menial jobs, and those with high IQs tend to become well-paid – but by no means always.

My concern is with a key set of these “other characteristics”, emotional intelligence: abilities such as being able to motivate oneself and persist in the face of frustrations; to control impulse and delay gratification; to regulate one’s moods and keep distress from swamping the ability to think; to empathise and to hope. Unlike IQ, with its nearly one-hundred-year history of research with hundreds of thousands of people, emotional intelligence is a new concept.”

 (Extracted from p 34, “Emotional Intelligence – Why it can matter more than IQ” (1995) by Daniel Goleman)
