Intelligence is measured in many ways. Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is probably the first measurement that comes to mind. IQ and all of its measurements we encountered over the course of our lives can be primary markers of our success (or failure).
The concept of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) has been around since 1995 when researcher Daniel Goleman introduced it to the world. The idea that “an ability to identify and manage emotions greatly increases our chances of success” quickly took off and has influenced the way people think about emotions and human behavior ever since.
