Hi everyone.

I explain my point. They emotionally solve and is himself a leader. So he or she has his or her own ideas. He or she has the power to control his feelings, expressions and thoughts.

They are not able to solve any problems himself. From childhood to up to now they have Standard wise solve the different exams that's why their mind is set accordingly. So they can not face with the new situation.

IQ is what it leads us to develop the laws, the innovation, the nuclear weapons, futuristic things but life without this is also possible.

For example, you say IQ leads us to make air conditioners but the need arise of it is only because of us i.e. global warming if pollution would not have increased so much co2 its trapping over the layers of earth's surface would not happen depletion of ozone layer would not happen and hence we don't need it.

So, if we keep EQ as our priority there will be no harm but the reverse will lead to a weapon more like nuclear one and that's why some great scientist sometimes goes with the terrorist for money only.

According to my point of view, Both EQ and IQ are important, but EQ has a great role compare to IQ, if someone has Good IQ, he can achieve more success in his professional life but he cannot become a good leader, because if he will not understand the feeling and the way he should treat his subordinates, He cannot get respect from his subordinates, and subordinates will do their work under pressure, not by their happiness. Employees working under him will be depressed from their work and cannot work with more efficiency. So, Less EQ in a high IQ person will affect Work efficiency, satisfaction among sub-ordinates etc. So Both EQ and IQ is important for growing, satisfied life.

In my opinion, both EQ and IQ are important. But according to the contemporary situation of the world, where men are still lynched in the name of religion, black people are still shot to death by white people and men do not hesitate to kill others and to exploit nature resources EQ is indeed more relevant than IQ. Man should first learn to love his own kind and respect the nature that provides everything he wants. Inventing new technology or flying to outer space comes only after this. IQ with out EQ is very dangerous. A man with poor EQ but top IQ will invent weapons that kill others. The human race over centuries has shown us the problem of having low EQ. The Black men were slaves of white men for centuries. At the end, Abraham Lincoln, a man with good EQ had to sign the Emancipation Proclamation to save them. Colonization of the weak counties by the strong also indicate the same. IQ without EQ won't take us anywhere.

Hello everyone.

I will go for IQ over EQ.

In today's world, we are witnessing new invention and startups every day. If we want to survive and give yourself a place among all then we should have ample amount of IQ.

For example, if Legendary scientists Stephen Hawking had gone with EQ then we can not have any idea about creation of the entire universe.

If Bear Grylls (of survival series Man vs. Wild) would have gone with EQ then he could never survive in a critical situation where he has to kill animals to eat.

Moreover; in practical and industrial world IQ should be placed on peak importance whereas EQ is needed to be a social being.

In my opinion, EQ and IQ both are necessary.

I feel everyone is unique and is important. There is always something that we can contribute to, the amount is not important. A person with better IQ/EQ has his own workspace and methodology he contributes to the work differently as a person with different IQ/EQ. Better Iq person can work smartly to do toughest works easily hence develop fame and wealth. Better eq person can develop popularity and leadership qualities he can withstand adverse condition and overcome them.

For a task to be done we need many kinds of people.

Some who would manage a team (highEQ).
Some who would plan task to perform it in better way (high IQ).
Some who would work tirelessly. (average IQ and EQ).
Contribution made by everyone has different impact and equally important.
Person with higher IQ can work on any arena and earn money and fame but may lack good social circle, hence may develop depression or suffer emotionally.
Persons with higher EQ develop a large social circle of friends and supporters who help them in difficulties, they may not be much richer or famous due to their technical abilities but can live a happy life by supporting others living for mass.
A person with average IQ and EQ is best as the person do not suffer either way. He can work anywhere happily with a fair wealth and fair emotional stability. He would be the most satisfied person.
Balanced IQ & EQ is most desirable.

Hello everyone,

It is the character that brings you huge success and I think characters are mostly driven by emotions.

Emotional quotient (EQ) and intelligence quotient (IQ) are undoubtedly very important aspects of a person's life and can make a large difference between a normal life and a successful life.

To be successful you may want to have a great IQ but, that success will not last long if your EQ is not appropriate.

But if you have a good EQ and a little less IQ then the chances of you becoming successful and carry on with that successful career increases way more than that would be in a case discussed above.

I think IQ is more important than EQ. Emotions are the biggest barrier to decision-making ability. If we think about what others say and starts taking into consideration of others opinion, we get messed up and hence lacks decision taking ability. Look we are living in the world where everything changes in an instant so we need someone who is confident of themselves and not get carried away in emotion. Hence I would prefer IQ over EQ.

According to me, weightage of EQ should be more than IQ, because if you are perfect in EQ than you can manage with less IQ for eg if you have good personality, skills and way of communication, good attitude (which comes under EQ) can face any competitive situation and in the same way although you have strong IQ but poor EQ then no one will take you seriously or you will be less focused or few people will join you.

So overall conclusion is that you don't need to have a balanced or same level of IQ or EQ. If you are best in EQ then you can easily survive in this competitive era with less IQ.

EQ means emotional quotient where IQ means intelligence quotient. Better EQ is essential for our personal and social behaviour and character and better IQ is essential for our knowledge and sharpness of mind. Both act as two wheels in our life in form of a cycle. If one would be weak then the life of a person would not successfully compete. So both EQ and IQ are important in our life.

Hi Guys.

After reading many comments on EQ and IQ, I have found that only a few people in the forum have actual knowledge about what I/EQ is.

There was a book published in 1935/36 by Carnegie Institutions written by Dale Carnegie. 15% professional or personal success depends on technical knowledge and 85% success depends on your soft skills. A wide array of soft skills includes how you interact with others in office or society while not hurting their emotion in any way. And the best way to cultivate this skill, people need to understand themselves as a human being before understanding other people.

It's not a question of salvaging IQ because we are born with it and over the course of years by selecting stimuli in our surrounding we enrich our IQ. But we should never overlook EQ, EQ plays a crucial role in person's life. IQ will get you from A to B, but EQ will make sure you don't lose yourself in its pursuit. Numerous times it happens that we chase an incomprehensible goal like money or fame only to realize that in pursuit of achieving that, we tarnished certain relations in our lives, we took our happiness for granted, we completely overlooked aspects of human relations in our lives and thus at the end of the horizon we found ourselves isolated and shunned by the people. So in the conclusion, I can say that it is EQ where our primary focus needs to be so that we invite and maintain healthy relations in our life, people that can help us expend our IQ in turn and vice versa.

Both EQ and IQ are important for better survival.

We have to first understand what basically they mean,

EQ stands for Emotional intelligence and is the capability of understanding other people's thought and signal. This surely will help us in becoming better at things which we do in our daily life. How we perceive things impacts greater and here EQ plays a great role in making us more confident.

Whereas IQ stands for Intelligence Quotient which depends heavily on how we think and reason.

Both IQ and EQ are terms used to calculate the capacity of a man be it intelligence or emotion. Now to say if either one holds more importance depends on the person. But as a society is concerned, a person has to be emotionally available for the betterment of society. Now if a person with relatively higher IQ and a well-settled lavish life is living in a place take for example a person is with a very low EQ then he wouldn't be bothered about people living around him even if they are miserable. But in the same case, a person with a better EQ might be able to feel the sentiments of ones suffering and would be able to work for hem or least give a helping hand. In the era where social media sort of rules at least some of you might have come across a video of a sports competition where the running race was held for differently abled students. In that video there comes a moment while the race was going on when a participant falls down, now if it were in a normal school we would have seen the kid left behind trying to get up himself or by the help of teachers and other participants would not have even spared him a glance. But in this scenario, we can see the other participants coming back helping the kid to get up and then resume running holding hands. See now there is the difference the differently-abled kids indeed is behind many of us in case of IQ but we can see that they are far ahead of us in EQ and the result of topping in IQ and EQ is pretty clear from that. Alas today's society and parents included are so hell-bent upon in increasing the IQ of their kids that the kids themselves lose the EQ that they were born with, and at the end the parents end up in old age homes, news of parental abuse increases as well as atrocities like rape and murder and so on.

The Mind is a very wonderful gift given by almighty. The mind is divided into two hemispheres. One portion of a mind which is the right one represents the person's emotions, feelings, loving nature, ability in the field of art, painting, sculpture, dancing, music etc things relevant to EQ terms but another portion of mind represents person's logical and scientific, Intelligence nature relevant to IQ terms. So we have to work on both. We have to maintain a balance between them. Without EQ or less EQ lead life to a drastic situation such as sometimes that person become more alcoholic or smoker or sometimes that person put his life into danger because that person can not face life as it is.

Hi friends,

First of all, I appreaciate what you all guys thought, somehow I agree with your perceptions. I Want to add my view about IQand EQ. IQ (intelligence quotient) is very important to compete with today's world as it is a rational and logical approach. Today the scenerio is different there is a vast range of technology and business in which only logical thinking is not enough for survival you must be social and philantropic (love for mankind). EQ (emotional quotient) is also very important in its own percpective. If you are a successful person (having a good/high IQ) but a low EQ then you are not a successful person, you are lacking somewhere so there must be a balance between IQ and EQ which distinguish you from others. Be gregarious as EQ leads to life's knowledge not bookish knowledge.

According to me, IQ is more important than EQ. First of all man are judged by their intellegence level, then only by EQ. Normal person IQ level must be 7. So we must first concentrate on IQ. We need to improve IQ level. Emotions are also important. But it can be controlled and show it in right time. For eg, we have a huge loss in business, we get tears flooded over the eyes. It is a sign of emotions but at that time, if managed to recover our money or else suceed in businees instead of crying it is sign og IQ. So improve your IQ first then think about next.

In real life always your healthy relationship with your subordinates, friends, family, and strangers will take you to a successful life.

Hello guys! What differentiate can be b/w two is when and where Eq is required and where Iq is required. Socially you need to be adaptive action of people in why that way is the Eq but that action is remain suitable or not is Iq. It's just like to give rewards or punishment as boss and also to get promotion or demotion as employee in professional life. In personal life to lead family Iq helps but eq saves the relationship.

IQ is what a person makes eccentrically smarter and cut above the rest, but EQ is what makes a person more socially acceptable with a peaceful life hence a successful person in his/her own field.

Suppose in a team, a person having high IQ always bosses around the other fellow teammates and deliberately trying to prove that he/she is the one who should be the smartest, then it is quite visible that the person has low EQ, which eventually makes him/her irritating and intolerable among the teammates and may even lead to failure or socially isolated. Well, he is somewhat like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, if you guys have watched the series you would know it!

In my opinion reasonable IQ and more EQ leads a person to the pinnacle of success.

Hi guys, first of all I would like to tell the definition of EQ& IQ. EQ means emotional quotient and IQ means intelligence quotient.

EQ mainly tells about emotions of a person and IQ tells about the intelligence of a person.

Everyone should have balanced IQ &EQ to lead.

Successful life. If one has high IQ and low EQ he will be happy up to certain time only because gradually he will be rejected by society because of his lack of emotions. If he has high EQ and low IQ he will automatically get IQ because of his emotions towards society. To be intelligent and emotion one should have to take care of both qualities. Then only we will be in others mouth.

Hello, guys,

First of all, I would like to define what is EQ and IQ. Basically, EQ (Emotional Quotient) is the measure of your emotional skills i.e. how you control your emotions whereas IQ (Intelligence Quotient) is the measure of your intelligence i.e.how intellect you are.

Now talking about their importance, I think both are equally important. For getting success in life you need a great IQ whereas for holding that success, you need a strong EQ. High IQ can get you a good job but low EQ can get you fired. High EQ and low IQ is such that you can't even get a job.

But researchers have shown that IQ contributes only 20% to your overall success. High EQ will help in maintaining good social relations with friends, family, and colleagues and will surely boost your mental level. It is also found that low EQ person no matter how intelligent he is often suicides.

A person having less IQ but comparatively more EQ than a person with high intellectual level will often be more successful in life. So there is need to maintain a balance between these two to be a successful and respectful member of the society.

Hey everyone.

First we need to understand that EQ (emotional quotient) is about feelings. It shows how a person can deal with his/her emotions. While I (intelligence quotient) is about brain. It shows your intelligence, knowledge and how good you are with your academics.

I believe that in this competitive world one should have higher EQ because competition is getting tougher day by day and many are committing suicide because they are not mentally and emotionally strong to handle such situation.

No matter how intelligent a person is, if he not mentally and emotionally strong. It will be difficult to get success in longer run.

EQ and IQ are like two faces of a coin, both have to be balanced in every individual to be successful. A person with high IQ and low EQ is just like food without salt (no taste). If you are intelligent enough but lack in collaborating with peers then you may not be a good team player, in another way around if you have good EQ but lack in intelligence then it hinders your ability to perform well.

EQ or Emotional Quotient may be defined as a person's ability to express emotions and IQ or Intelligence Quotient may be defined as a person's ability with the brain. In my opinion, both are equally important in life if one has to become successful. Having an extraordinary ability to think i.e. IQ will not ensure that the individual is a good team player, or that his/her relations with his/her colleagues are good enough. Similarly only having a good EQ score does not prove a point that a person will excel in life. So a balance is definitely important.

Hello Everyone;.

EQ and IQ are inseparable.

Discipline, Mannerism, and Attitude can frame EQ. By making these functions work together will make one's EQ good and can cross many obstacles in life in a very pleasant manner.

Through Intelligence, Knowledge, Ability, Will power, Dedication and Self-interest its possible to achieve desires and with this a person is motivated through appraisals, awards, rewards etc. To all these main roles is IQ.

More EQ - - -> Pleasant surroundings (people with us give good respect).
More IQ - - ->Creative minds (Technology development, Nation growth).

Thanks Have a great day.

EQ or Emotional Quotient is defined as an individual's ability to identify, evaluate, control and express emotions. People with high EQ usually make great leaders and team players because of their ability to understand, empathize and connect with people around them.

IQ or Intelligence Quotient determines one's academic abilities and is determined by several standardized tests to assess an individual's intelligence. People with high IQ gain success in challenging task and has the ability to analyze how to approach towards a goal.

So, both EQ and IQ is necessary for a successful person. A person with high IQ and low EQ can innovate but will not be able to manage different people around him and vice-versa. Thus, there should be a balance between EQ and IQ.

I think IQ and EQ play a very prominent role in our personal as well as professional life. We need to maintain a balance between the two because if we are having good IQ but our Eq is weak then we might not be able to deal with people in a better way as we would not understand what they want from us. Similarly, having lack of IQ.

Is also not good as would not be able to get desired results in various domains of life. So I conclude that both IQ and EQ are equally important to become a successful person as well as a better human being.

EQ refers to the Emotional quotient which means dealing with emotion and IQ refers to Intelligence quotient which means dealing with knowledge. In human life, everything has its own importance, so we can't differentiate IQ and EQ but they are complementary to each other. Those people who have both of these qualities their life is a balance. Today the trend has been changed for a job, why? because all company wants to the growth his company, so those people who have a better EQ means better leadership quality, handling the situations and emotion easily, they preferred him first but it doesn't mean IQ is not important. IQ is also one of the important parts for getting a job, suppose you don't get better knowledge than you rejected first because the company has some criteria for applying the job. At last but not least I can say that IQ and EQ both are interrelated to each other for being the life too much good.

Well, according to me, both EQ and IQ run together. They are like Jai- Veeru of film sholey. You cannot rely wholly upon IQ or Wholly upon EQ.

There should be a balance between two.

There are some situations in our life where we have to use our IQ n some other situations where have to our EQ only. Using former in place later sometimes become dangerous.

So one learns to maintain a balance between these two. And they should learn in what situations they have to use their IQ n what situations they have to use their EQ.

I think eq and iq are nothing but two different sides of coin and coin will only be acceptable if it has both the sides. Many say eq links with our personal life and iq links with professional part of ours but I think eq lags iq. Like for dealing with clients only iq will not gonna work one need to have eq skills for convincing them. Iq result defines with numbers or score. Eq involves remarks. Dealing with any situation requires how intelligently we use our emotions.

According to me, we need to balance both emotional quotient (EQ) and intelligence quotient (IQ) in our life. Because, now a days the main problem in our life is imbalancing the personal and professional life. As a result of this, an individual succeed in professional life may fails in personal life and vice-versa. But for a human being both are very important to survive. EQ builds strong relationships and IQ builds strong professional life.

Hi guys,

According to me, IQ is important than EQ. For Ex: If a person does zero emotions then zero enemies so he can develop in his professional life. Not only enemy point of view. If a girl leaves a boy then the boy has emotionally attached towards that girl then his life may become spoil. See emotions is just short period of time after that we are all forget that emotional matter then we all concentrate on actual work. Country like India, people are more emotionally attached towards their personal life according to me it is not required. They just concentrate on their professional life that will helpful to grow his life along with that our country will grow.

Emotional quotient is all about control our emotion where ever there is a need, whether in the job, towards employee, parents or any older people. It acts like "The first impression is the last impression". We must have the ability to listen the thought and perception that delivers by an adult because they have lots of experience as they have already gone through our ages. So it's our responsibilities to go through the decisions taken by our parents or any adult. The same is applicable in job sector also. Don't over react. Our parents aim is to give us a good platform and it's our will to move forward to an extreme level which depends on our IQ level, how skilled we are, our performance in professional areas. STRONG EQ LEADS TO STRONG IQ.
