There should be balance between both, one should not outweigh the other. Even robots have built it artificial intelligence but without EQ, so if we crave only for IQ there would not b any difference between we and machines, IQ is inbuilt within us in the form of a brain, we jst need to put it into use more & more and let not stay it idle and rust.

EQ as well IQ, both are important for a person 's growth. Intelligent quotient is important to take decisions and Emotional quotient is important to understand the needs of people who are important or are directly related to us. A person with a high IQ can not grow if he lacks EQ towards others and a person having a high EQ but lacking IQ cannot take important decision as he lacks critical reasoning. Both are equally important.

Hello everyone!

According to me, both EQ and IQ are equally important. If one is engine then second is oil. Where IQ is helpful for both our educational and financial development, on other side EQ is important for social and personal development. Without IQ, no person can exist in this competitive, tough era of life and without EQ one cannot build his/her personality.

So one should possess both EQ and IQ. Both are important factors for a living and human growth. Both nourish each other and should be in a balanced manner.

Thank you.

A man with high IQ but lack of EQ. Is just like a vehicle with full of fuel but no accelerator, so it is useful but can't fulfil our needs and uncontrollable.

Hi, in short both are important, because EQ means to understand one's emotions n feelings, which is very imp to rise high in your life by binding everyone by your side, whereas IQ is required to work intelligently, that is why, in every competitive exam Reasoning is compulsory to answer, hence both are imp.

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.

Hello everyone,

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.

IQ generally relates us to knowledge base while EQ to emotions and social based.

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. While Without IQ or less IQ a person can live not a better life but definitely a sustainable life.

I think there should be a proper balance between EQ and IQ but if we compare these EQ is always given more priority in real life. A person with high IQ may get through a lot of things but a person with high EQ is the one who is able to succeed in different aspects of life. High EQ enables a person effectively deal with different situations which may be unfavorable at times. Having high IQ level is not enough as other factors like maintaining healthy relations with others, ability to deal with different situations effectively are equally important.

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.

This world is a slave to leaders, we neither require managers (boss) nor the brain of Einstein. There is a little difference between the leader and a manager, the manager is a person chosen for his IQ by people above him but a leader is a person chosen for his EQ by the people below him.

A person with good IQ may lead him/her to a very reputed MNC, but they may be socially isolated if they have low EQ.

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

I am not saying IQ is not important, but EQ must always predominate over IQ.

People with very high IQ may tend to think always logically but their decisions may lack emotions.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello, friends.

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.

In my opinion, the balance is very important. Because in day to day life some situations demand our intelligence while some our emotional characteristics. Suppose if someone is very smart but is emotionally weak then there is no use or someone is emotionally very strong but he is not smart again no use. So, definitely, We have to balance both in order to face any challenge in life.

Hi guys!

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.

In life, both have own importance differently like Nowadays most of the companies want a person who has more EQ because a person has to work in a team, those people have more EQ that are a good leader, good player and ability to take care of own emotions.

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.

Hello, guys! what do I think is that both Eq and Iq have interrelated significance, I mean think about the situation, a person has good IQ but he is not emotionally calm and compose he can not pretty much handle the stressed situation be it exam or any regular activity then what good that IQ is gonna do for him. He is also not confident enough to go out and discuss the problems, he is an introvert, He is also not good at dealing with family problems because in the adverse situation he can not handle his stress level because he is not calm and composed. So, in a nutshell, if we want to make the best use of our IQ then we should be mentally and Emotionally calm and compose, there should be harmony between the both.

In our daily life we can see many examples of it, A person who have good hold on emotions can handle any situation easily whether it is in office or in home. For an example a person is frustrated of his work and still he is hardworking to get a promotion from this post and here he is not exploring his frustration to his manager because he knows it will effect him only. Here the person is using his EQ as well as his IQ. Therefore here we can see that EQ and IQ both are important to us in all manner.

It decides our character and forms the basis of our image in the society. It helps to build reputation and impression in the society makes the life easier. On the other hand, IQ is equally important. Actually they are corelated. The success of a person directly depends on the two. IQ decides our intelligence capabilities.

Hello everyone,

Do you remember the everlasting debate topic Book Smart or Street Smart? Here all the book smarts will agree to IQ(Intelligence Quotient), which is the number derived from the standardized intelligence test, scores are calculated by dividing the individual's mental age with individuals chronological age multiplied by 100.

IQ represents abilities such as
->Qualitative ability
->visual and spatial processing
->knowledge of the world
->working and short-term memory
->Fluid reasoning

All the street smarts will agree to the emotions intelligence which refers to the person's ability to perceive, control, evaluate and express emotions.

EQ represents abilities such as
-> Identifying emotions.
-> Evaluating how others feel.
-> Controlling one's own emotions.
-> Using emotions to facilitate human intelligence, social communication.

I prefer Emotional intelligence, It is no doubt individuals with high IQ perform well in the studies, accomplish things better but only high intelligence will not guarantee success in life. It is too narrow to fully encompass the wide range of human abilities and knowledge.

Research shows that people with great empathy, leadership potential, initiative, self-confidence show high EQ. They are able to handle situations better than the individuals with high IQ. People with high IQ may perform well in competitive exams but the individuals with high EQ will become Global leaders. Companies now mandate Emotional intelligence training and use EQ as the part of their hiring process.

According to me, to be successful both EQ and IQ are equally important. Depending on the situation we should use our EQ and IQ. For eg- in business when we are taking decisions we should use our IQ, but when we are meeting our partners then we should use our EQ to maintain cordial relations with them. Without EQ we cannot understand ourselves and others also, we cannot maintain friendly relations, we cannot share our thoughts and knowledge with others i.e. a person without EQ is one who is isolated, who is not self-confident, who is not self-aware and who is not happy. Without IQ, we cannot think logically, practically and accurately. IQ is needed for making accurate decisions quickly. IQ helps us to think whether we have made correct decision or not based on our EQ. Thus EQ makes us become socialized and IQ makes us become smart.
