Emotional intelligence is the best known intelligence of those that aren’t measured in the IQ tests, but there are many different intelligences… Emotional intelligence is spoken of because that is something everyone needs and everyone needs YOU to have it.
In your starting point measurements, eight out of the 12 measures depend on your emotional intelligence, and if I want to be quite truthful, even your health number depends on your EQ as well. So in a roundabout way I test your emotional intelligence.
If you find yourself upset by what other people say, or what you hear they say, etc. chances are the problem is with you, namely with your ability to consider that what they say says more about them than about you.
