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.

I believe IQ scores limited nowadays. For a person to survive in this competitive world and to face challenges he must have good EQ otherwise he faces psychological issues and turns into depression.

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.

It's impossible to clap with a single hand as its difficult to live with only either of EQ or IQ.

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.

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.

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.

Life success is a result of many factors. Both IQ and EQ undoubtedly play roles in influencing your overall success as well as things such as health, wellness, and happiness.

But moreover, EQ is very key to success because IQ is depends tests your knowledge capacity but EQ is evaluates your human relation capacity in different types of situations. So decision making is possible with EQ.

Finally, EQ is more important than IQ.

Thank you.

Hello Guys,

There is purely IQ because EQ is nothing but IQ. If a person shows EQ so because of his IQ as IQ teaches about EQ. When a team leader handles his team with EQ so at that time that leader uses his IQ to utilise his EQ/Utility. In other hand, when people show their EQ without using IQ so those people show their stupidity somewhere at that place. For an example: suppose there are two people one is an agent and second is a client and client shows his EQ before the agent for taking more and more concession and agent gives without using his IQ, then what will happen? that agent will bear that loss because of his lack of IQ.

Thank you.

I think that both IQ and EQ have their own importance because we can use them in the right place where they can be used. If a person haven't any kind of EQ then he can't understand the feelings and emotions of others and if he hasn't any kind of IQ then we can't judge his ability to take any right decision it means when he hasn't any kind of intelligence then how he could take the right decision. So both have their own importance and both have necessary in the lives of people.

Thank you.

Hellow everybody,

Well, IQ and EQ both are important for us. IQ stands for Intelligence Quotient and EQ stands for Emotional Quotient. I think they completing each other. EQ is the ability to think, understand and action to do but IQ is Intelligence to think in a higher level reasoning and problem solving. In each person's IQ and EQ are both needed. EQ is long lasting and it shows the attitude of a person, it helps to succed in life on the other hand IQ helps the person to decide logically, practically and also accurately. So, IQ and EQ both are nesessary become a successful man. I think both are common part of our life and if we ignore any one that's not perfect logic.

Hello guys,

I appreciate to my all friends who told lots of thoughts of yours.

Well as we know that we all are human and we have one heart and one mind to use for works in your life. So as I think both EQ & IQ is most important parts of our life as we know that but sometimes we required one is more. Like if somebody has died and you met their family then there is the time to work of you EQ because without EQ you can not share those feelings. So EQ is best for that. And if you want to do something for them than your IQ is coming there that what you can do for them like some financial help. Or arrange some jobs/business for them. So the conclusion is that as per me EQ & IQ is a main for human life without one we can not live in our life or we can not enjoy. So both are good for us. It's a part of our life which is using in a different situation by you.

Hello, friends.


I think both IQ-EQ are important in our daily life. With IQ we can solve any theoretical problems in our life like maths or any puzzle. And EQ helps us to solve any emotional problems in our life. Nowadays most of the companies want a person who has both EQ and IQ. Because they have to work in teams and also have to do a smart work too. For teamwork he/she needs EQ and for smart work, he/she needs enough IQ. That is why in today's lifestyle EQ and IQ both are needed.

Hi friends, I am Maneesha.

My view is the level of EQ must be higher than IQ levels. Anyone can gain IQ levels through self-learning or refer some resources where we find less interaction with one another but in the case of EQ, it can't be gained from any books or anything else it should be practiced through experience which reveals that interaction is necessary. And the thing we need is proper interaction because unless one have pretty EQ levels a person cannot lead a good role in one's profession as the basement in every profession is to know what others want from the other. Understanding the problem statement in a crystal clear way gives effective output.

Hello Friends,

I appreciate what you all guys thoughts. I want to add my understanding about EQ and IQ, Both are part of our mindset that play very important role as EQ is an expression or emotion that get triggers when we are having good IQ. Since IQ is totally a mental exercise on issue and problems, its a skill that helps in decision making, problem-solving basically a rational approach. Eg. When we solve a problem using IQ we feel the sense of achievement and happiness (EQ). So IQ is a trigger for EQ and vice-versa provided there should be the proper balance between them.

Hello Friends,

I respect the opinion of my friends regarding this subject. According to me, situation enables us to understand the value of IQ and EQ in our lives. A person's EQ gives us a partial view of his/her character. But it is IQ that reveals his/her knowledge. We, the people of 20th century are always determined to reach the highest level of success. Absurd emotion is odd with such ambition. A person without EQ behaves as an automaton. But a person without IQ becomes an object of ridicule.

Whenever we are in an interview or in exam hall our IQ dominates us to give our best. In business, IQ is quite important than EQ. But if we do business for business's sake, it may bring temporary success. Perfect balance of IQ and EQ is the backbone of perpetual success in business.

It is our EQ by which we can judge ourselves and prevent doing injustice to others. To enjoy our lives spontaneously we need both IQ and EQ. So, I support both IQ and EQ because the combination of IQ and EQ makes us not only a successful person, a good person too.

What I believe is, Emotional intelligence is one of the basic requirement one need to have because only that can help you to understand your deep desires, yourself and others too.

Without EQ it will really be a tough task to choose, to grab the best for yourself.

Self-understanding comes first for any individual which can only be acquired through EQ.

If we know what we want only then our IQ plays a role. Hence on my scale, EQ is more important than IQ.

Understanding Emotional and Intelligence Quotient.

According to some theories of brain function, a high EQ means someone is self-confident, self-aware, and able to handle difficult emotional experiences. It is often tied directly to the degree of success a person may have in the workplace and in personal relationships. People with high EQ can often better recognize and control their own emotions, and recognize emotional states in others to adjust their behavior accordingly.

A person's IQ, on the other hand, measures concepts like logical reasoning, word comprehension, and math skills rather than creative potential or emotional abilities. People with a high IQ may be able to learn certain subjects very quickly and make connections between ideas that others miss. They often have great academic success, although they may struggle to find classes that challenge them. The ability to acquire knowledge does not necessarily mean people can recognize and manage their own emotional states, however.

Correlations Between EQ and IQ.

There is a great deal of disagreement about any potential link between these two quotients; it is not clear if one indicates or has an impact on the other. Emotional intelligence is often more difficult to measure than IQ, and the methods used are fairly different, so it's not easy to compare them on equal terms. There are also many individuals with very high IQs who seem to be limited in terms of social skills and emotional recognition. Such examples suggest that they are different aspects of the human mind and should be considered separately.

Measuring EQ and IQ.

People have been measuring IQ for much longer than EQ. The first modern IQ test was developed in the early 20th century; although some aspects of emotional intelligence have been considered since that time, EQ tests really were not developed until the 1990s. Many modifications on these tests have been made since then, and there are competing models for how to most accurately measure these quotients.

An IQ test usually involves a set of standardized questions for which the test taker receives a score. This score is compared against the average scores of others within the same age range to determine a person's intellectual potential. These types of tests may have a cultural or language bias, however, and they do not indicate everything about a person's mind and functionality. For example, IQ measurements on most children with autism are typically very high, yet these children can have difficulties communicating with others.

An EQ exam is often more difficult to design and administer because it deals with information that is difficult to present as a numerical value. While an IQ exam may have one definitive answer for each question, EQ tests are usually more subjective and require a great deal of work to score properly. Short EQ tests can also be problematic as people may realize they are being tested on their emotional capabilities and adjust their answers accordingly. People might not answer questions truthfully, so results may become skewed by what the test taker believe the test giver wants to hear, rather than giving true responses to questions.

Using Emotional and Intelligence Quotient.

Once a person's EQ and IQ are determined, they can be used by employers and educators in a variety of ways. Many companies use EQ testing to gauge how well applicants will work with others on a team and their ability to deal with stress and emotional extremes. Teachers and counselors at schools can administer IQ tests to see if students are having difficulties in class due to being too advanced or behind when compared to their peers. EQ tests are often used in education to help identify those students who may need special assistance in learning to manage their emotions or to better communicate with others.
