What is Your Level Of Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional Intelligence (also known as the emotional quotient, or EQ) has been defined by John Mayer in a counterbalance to intelligence quotient, or IQ.

Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions.

This helps in relieving stress, effective communication, empathizing with others, overcoming challenges, and defusing conflicts.

To develop harmoniously, we must be able to identify our feelings and needs, align them with our short-and long-term goals. And take into account the emotions and feelings of others.

Also, we need to learn how to motivate ourselves and mobilize all our resources, either internal (energy, diligence, discipline, perseverance) or external (empathy, determining the emotions of others, setting boundaries, etc.).

This quiz contains 20 questions, which should be answered either Often, Sometimes, or Rarely to determine the level of your emotional intelligence.

Please be honest with yourself and don’t think too long. The correct answer is the first one that came into your mind. Good Luck!
