Everyone's EQ and IQ are equally important. The emotional quotient deals with person managing his emotion in such a way that he can communicate with other in effective manner and in the case of the Intelligent quotient deals with the technical knowledge of the person required for solving problems. So, both EQ and IQ are important for a person to have successful life.
|John Ladakh said: (Jul 20, 2021)|
|We need both of the qualities 100% in ourselves.
IQ and EQ both define the ability to tackle the problem or situation at the front. It depends upon the situation whether we need to think with our Brain or with our Heart. Scientifically speaking, we use our Brain the entire day we stay awake, but, it depends upon how well are we able to take good and effective decisions as per the situation. I believe EQ is a part of IQ, because if we are having an idiotic and chaotic mindset, we cannot take good and intelligent decisions whether it's intellect or emotional.
|Hardik said: (Jan 30, 2021)|
Let's straightaway break them to get the literal meaning.
Quotient is the result/reaction of something.
When we appear for competitive exams we are given various formats of tests to assess.
What reaction our brain puts to it, how well it.
Gets you to its solution and henceforth.
This procedure takes time for each individual,
Which is usually judged as a parameter. That's Our IQ.
When we are fallen apart, Broken, Lonely or depressed, our body releases various energies - anger, disappointment, Envy, Self-harm. How well we deal with it and how least it affects our normal routine life has relied upon our EQ.
We all read that we need both in a balanced amount, but I personally wanted to add this up too. Character and Competence are two important aspects. Yet there is no use of competence without a good character. It would gradually lead to Chaos.
|Abhishek Yadav said: (Nov 20, 2020)|
|For a competitive world, a person should have both Iq as well as Eq.
Iq is the ability of a person to think his ideas technically as per Eq is concerned is the ability of a person to communicate and to control his emotion and express a positive vibe in front of the world.
For being a knowledgeable person among all you shod have good Iq and for being a leader among the all you should have good Eq.
|Kavya said: (Nov 13, 2020)|
|Good morning to all.
EQ &IQ both are important because book without cover is the uncomplete production. That means if you have technically knowledge person but you doesn't respect or response to others. IQ based on how intelligence you are EQ is how responsible person you are so both are important to our lives.
|Saraban Tahura said: (Jun 29, 2020)|
Both EQ (Emotional Quotient) and IQ (Intelligence Quotient) are important in our life. EQ is the ability to understand, manage your own emotions in a positive way to relieve stress and communicate efficiently and emphasize with others and overcome challenges and defuse conflict. It also can Manage relationship with other people.
And IQ (intelligence quotient) is the ability to manage your technical knowledge, ideas and thoughts.
You need to have a brilliant IQ to be a gd engineer but to be a leader of engineer your EQ is more important rather than IQ.
It's difficult to go ahead with one. I think They are complementary to each other.
So both EQ & IQ is important for our successful life.
|Sajitha said: (Jun 15, 2020)|
|EQ and IQ both are important for success in life. IQ depends on our technical knowledge and EQ depends on our behavior. We can achieve our goals with IQ, But our behavior determines the stability of our achievement.|
|Rahul Malviya said: (Feb 25, 2020)|
|"Emotional quotient is defined as an individual ability to identify, evaluate and express emotion".
People with high EQ usually make great leaders and team players because of their ability to understand, empathize and connect with the people around them.
IQ or Intelligence quotient is derived from one of several standardized tests designed to asses individual intelligence.
IQ is used to determine academics abilities and identify individuals with off the chart intelligence or mental challenges. EQ is a better indicator of success in the workplace and is used to identify leaders' good team players and people who work by themselves.
In my opinion, a proper balance between IQ and EQ is the need of ours. Intelligence quotient is important for it helps to achieve his or her goals and apply their minds or intellects to get better at a job.
|Soumya said: (Feb 24, 2020)|
|In my opinion eq and IQ, both are important for a successful life. Because hard work pays more success so when you work hard in your life, carrier, etc. You will the best of all. In my opinion when you work hard with patients then the IQ level will definitely grow than with the help of this IQ we pay back lots of success. So eq and IQ both are important.|
|Kanchan said: (Jan 24, 2020)|
|Both has equal importance if one said about having a balanced life. But here is the point of choosing anyone either EQ or IQ. Based on my preference I'll choose that EQ is more important than IQ. Humans EQ is one of factor which differs us from an animal like a chimpanzee. Having strong IQ is not bad but In comparison to an individual if EQ is higher than he/she will be more successful in their life either it is personal life or professional. Let's take an example of two friends one of them has high IQ and others have a high EQ.
Both are fairly good at studies but one is better as he has a high IQ. But both of them addicted to some wrong things which terribly affected their studies having shown them one of there teacher approaches both of them separately and give them some teaching rewarding their career. After listing teacher with high EQ both come to the conclusion that he should work hard and choose right habits but the second boy was in his so-called past fairly good result which made him more arrogant and he denied the advice of his teacher. And end up his career terribly. So having a high IQ is not enough 60'. Of our life depends upon our EQ.
|Sakshi said: (Jan 12, 2020)|
|For every person, there should a balance between EQ and IQ because some of the decision we cannot take by emotions and some not take by brain at every path of life we should have proper balance between them. For every successful man they take decision to maintain level between them.|
|Yvaine said: (Nov 10, 2019)|
|I pretty sure that the most of us know about Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory. That guy possesses an IQ level of 187, but has an EQ level of probably 4. He lacks to understand things from emotional point of view. He has a hard time understanding why his co-workers and acquaintances don't like him.
Your IQ may help you to land a job but it is your EQ which brings you success. Getting along emotionally with people and understanding things from their perspective is an art. We see many business firms recruit those who have the ability to deal with other people with ease. Those who can control their emotions and keep in view of other's emotions as well succeed in today's world. We see many people dealing with million dollar projects and deals with just EQ and common sense. Of course one cannot undermine the importance of IQ. IQ alone cannot bring you success, you need EQ along with it.
I would give more preference to EQ rather than IQ.
|Simran Jha said: (Oct 16, 2019)|
|EQ, the emotional quotient and IQ, the intelligence quotient both of them are important to lead a successful and happy life. EQ helps you to connect with people and understand them well and it gives you the ability to share your emotions it gives you love and with IQ you can have technical knowledge which helps you make money. Both Money and love are important to be happy.|
|Shiju said: (Oct 14, 2019)|
|Both are important. Both have their own merits.
Consider the case of our class exams. If one has a high IQ then he can easily pass the exam. But if he has low IQ and high EQ, still then he can pass the exam (I think you get my point).
|Bhawana said: (Sep 26, 2019)|
|I agree because IQ is more important rather than EQ. And without IQ, we do not get any more. So, IQ is the main key of a successful person.|
|Nasa said: (Jun 29, 2019)|
|In my opinion, a proper balance between EQ and IQ is the need of the hour. Intelligence quotient is important for it helps one to achieve his or her goals and apply their minds or intellect to get better at a job whereas EQ or Emotional quotient is required to keep one linked to his or her team, understand the failures, come up positively, introspect the personality and behaviour which also cannot be neglected.|
|Raj Kumar Yadav said: (Jun 17, 2019)|
|I am going to start this by putting a quote which says " IQ can get you a job but EQ will ensure that you will stay and improve there".
IQ stands for Intelligence quotient which includes the technical skills that the individual possess i.e. analytical skills, conceptual skills, reasoning skills etc.
EQ stands for Emotional quotient which includes the people skills, how you communicate, how you talk to the individuals, how's your personality, your attitude towards others, all these things comes under EQ.
For an individual to succeed in life, Balance of both EQ and IQ should be there, A person should be intelligent as well as emotionally strong in order to survive and to achieve the individual as well as organizational goals.
|E.Karthick said: (May 29, 2019)|
Our body parts works through two major things. One is brain (IQ) and another one is Heart (EQ). Most of Our society people are only focus to IQ when a student studying from their school and college days. So that time they don't care on EQ. Because, they think that if IQ is more he/she will be great person in later. My conclision is IQ and EQ are both are dependent but IQ is more prominent than EQ.
When you have an high EQ, you always surround by people/persons and you also dependented on them. But you have an high IQ you not at all depend on anybody. From your work all other persons make relationship with you.
IQ people make good things, EQ poeple take good things.
|Ar.K said: (May 6, 2019)|
|Both are equal but these days no value of EQ everyone takes decision From IQ.
IQ is part of division and EQ is an addition.
|Riya said: (Feb 13, 2019)|
According to my point of view, EQ and IQ both are the major controlling part of our body because by managing these two-factors successes is achieved very smoothly. EQ stands for emotional quotient and IQ stands for intelligent quotient.
To manage the teamwork EQ is needed while in individual work IQ is needed.
EQ is the function of heart and IQ is the function of the brain. For example, in managerial work, EQ is more important than IQ.
|Arindam Maity said: (Feb 12, 2019)|
|EQ and IQ both are important for us.
EQ and IQ are helped us mentally prepared for any types of competitive exam.
|Bk Yadav said: (Feb 11, 2019)|
|EQ or IQ in my opinion both is important.
But how much?
This can be understood easily.
As both are condition based.
It's your condition which decides which is more important.
|Ray said: (Jan 26, 2019)|
|Through my perception, both eq and iq are important we know that our heart alone can't manage the whole body we compulsory needed brain to function some will say eq is imp. Or iq but you know that very clearly that both are important.|
|Ramandeep Kaur said: (Nov 19, 2018)|
|Basically, I think that both are equally important but on the other side, I have this view also that eq matters more. Sometimes, when we overreact or act sentimental, we show our sense of behaving in society. It also proves that we are not strong from inside and it appears that we are not having good IQ level as we couldn't control ourselves and our emotions.|
|Mauli said: (Oct 29, 2018)|
Well, the topic is EQ or IQ, firstly, we should be clear about the topic, EQ stands for emotional quotient, know and control your emotions, and know others' too while IQ stands for intelligence quotient, passing a series of standard tests and all to check how intelligent you are, how vigilantly you use your skill.
So, the preference would depend upon the nature of work, if the work requires a team which wants a leader to take his team to achieve success then EQ is needed while if the work is on the individual basis then go for IQ.
And we can also say that both the factors go hand in hand, these are wheels to lead a successful and contentful life, one will control your heart and other will your brain. It is rightly said that no decision can be taken by your brain only.
So, both are equally important to live satisfactorily.
|Keerthi Shravani said: (Oct 12, 2018)|
|EQ and IQ are kinds of intelligence, former being emotional quotient and later being intellectual quotient. Both weigh equally in the real world but the nature of the task which we are taking up decides which has the upper hand.
If it's a managerial job which deals with people, EQ becomes slightly more important than IQ.
On the other hand, IQ plays a greater role in research (scientific) oriented task.
But in general, IQ determines the way you attack the problem and how you use your previous experience and knowledge for finding the solution.
EQ determines how well you manage the process and carry it forward until you find the optimal solution. It mostly deals with the balancing our emotions and keeping it stable internally as well as externally.
|Aaa said: (Oct 2, 2018)|
I would like to say that both eq and Iq should be balanced in a person. We can't think or take a logical decision without iq but if we are talking about eq it's also important for us because without eq we can't take any emotional decision. Without eq our society will not accept us we will be like a animals so o think bot are important for us.
|Gayathri C said: (Aug 29, 2018)|
You are all well known about this topic. But this is the first attempt of me. If you find any mistake just please reject it with some suggestion to improve my skill of doing this.
EQ - Basically known as Emotional Quotient.
IQ-basically was known as Intelligent Quotient.
In my point of view, both are important to our life.
They are just like the wheels of our life.
By using IQ we can know the basics of studies or (may be deeply about studies) but we can't know the basics of our life.
IQ is just when it is made a continuous process of studying or learning or being up-to-date I think so.
Where as EQ is not a continuous process of learning but it is to be faced differently which are not in academics textbooks etc. It is just related to thoughts of our mind that how mentally we are strong.
Just we can say IQ is the fuel and EQ as the vessel. By using fuel we can burn a vessel just as it, we can use IQ. When it is known how to use it properly.
Just as how we use knowledge to be wise, we need to use IQ to be EQ.
Let us take the example of our own.
IQ is important for us to attend a competitive exam (Written) whereas EQ helps us to attend the interviews (being courageous is also very important).
If there is no EQ and there is only IQ, then it is not possible to secure any job without any subject.
Just as it.
If there is no IQ and there is only EQ then there is no value for IQ because if the person is not courage enough to say what he knows when he is not mentally fit i.e. he has less EQ. Control over emotions is necessary.
So, I say that IQ and EQ are interrelated or interdependent to achieve success in our life.
I hope that I can correct my mistakes if specified.
Thank you all.
|Yuktha said: (Aug 23, 2018)|
|Eq is far more important than the iq.
90%of the success depends on eq.
Analysis of the problems simply finding facts that is iq will not solve the crisis. Emotional thinking is required.
|Jally Rathaor said: (Jul 27, 2018)|
First of all, I would like to say that the topic about which we discuss I think everyone has the same point of view but the way of explanation is not good somebody's views good that's like most like this was an example of IQ and the way of expressing your views its come from our hearts that emotion so this one thing is EQ, therefore, we can say that IQ& EQ both complimentary of each other.
|Mahmad Rafi said: (Jul 20, 2018)|
EQ & IQ are like heart & the brain in the human body, to become a good human, both parts need to be work better. Final aim of all human beings is to lead the happy life so always my first preference goes to EQ.
IQ without EQ is like baseless building. EQ without IQ is like base without a building.
To become better than all build your IQ.
To become better with all build both IQ& EQ, (my preference).
|Ananya said: (Jul 17, 2018)|
|In my opinion, both EQ and IQ are important at their places but I have to choose one of them I will prefer EQ over IQ because a person should have good control on their emotions IQ can be increased by the books but EQ comes with the life experiences. A person having good EQ can work more properly and calmly than the person having high IQ. I totally agree with the other views that a person having high IQ and no EQ is not able to differentiate between personal and professional life, according to me the person who is emotionally stable can do anything. So yes I prefer EQ over IQ.|
|Abhijit said: (Jul 17, 2018)|
|IQ is more technical term. It's an indicator of cognitive capacity, specifically it's one's ability in thinking and reasoning. In 1921, Lewis Terman (Psychologist at Standford University) interviewed and selected roughly 1500 kids from all over the world with an IQ around 150 or above. He hypothesized that these kids would become great policy makers, Nobel laureates, famous professors or great artists. But only a few kids are successful in life. One more fact I want to mention here, Chris Langan (IQ 195, more than Einstein). But he is not a Nobel laureate. So, only IQ does not guarantee success. In the case of EQ, people with well-developed emotional skills are more likely to be content and effective in their lives, mastering the habits of the mind that foster their own productivity; whereas people who cannot marshal some control over their emotional life will fight inner battles that sabotage their ability for focused work and clear thought. Life success is a result of both factors. Both IQ and EQ undoubtedly play roles in influencing your overall success, as well as things such as health, wellness, and happiness. Rather than focusing on which factors might have a more dominant influence, the greatest benefit may lie in learning to improve skills in multiple areas.|
|Manu Sharma said: (Jul 16, 2018)|
|Life is all about balance. The batter you make balance the happier your life will be. EQ and IQ both are the wheels of life anyone of them can't be removed. EQ means emotional quotient and IQ stands for Intelligence quotient. Suppose you have amazing intelligence and knowledge but you don't know how to represent yourself, how to talk to others, you have no values for emotions then no one prefers to work with you. On the other side, if you are socially good, you respect others feelings, you don't think from your brain always but you don't have knowledge means you know how to represent yourself but indeed you have nothing good to represent then how can you earn your livelihood.
So, in my perception both are important.
|Muskan S said: (Jul 14, 2018)|
|EQ and IQ both are important at there places. A person with high IQ and without EQ can't able to handle the difference between their professional and personal life. But for me EQ is more important because the person with EQ can handle toughest situation in their life. If we take the example of housewife or our mother she takes decision from her heart if she also started using her Brain so there will never be Peace in home. For maintaining peace in home many times she ignore people behavior. So EQ is more important.|
|Priyanka V said: (Jul 11, 2018)|
|EQ and IQ both are important. Both play a very important in our life. And hence both should be balanced. But if you want me to choose one. I would prefer EQ over IQ. Because if a person doesn't know how to manage and control his emotions and feelings then what's the use of his intelligence? Ok if I have IQ and no EQ then what's the difference between me and a machine. We are human beings. We are emotional beings. This is what makes us different and unique. Therefore our EQ is more important than IQ. EQ is not only important in your personal life but also in your professional life too.|
|Ranit Ghosal said: (Jul 10, 2018)|
|Man is the most unpredictable of all resources. So reading the thought process of someone else and acting according to it is the toughest job. That is the reason why top level human resource managers are paid the highest salaries.
So, if you can understand the thought process of a person and manipulate/ influence him to work according to your needs, you will be at the top in no time. That is one of the most important qualities of any person.
Having a good IQ is great but always remember that a person with good IQ works under a person with good EQ.
|R.Shakila said: (Jul 8, 2018)|
|In my point of view, IQ is the base for EQ. A person with better IQ Can understand every situation easily such that they can handle those situations emotionally.
So a person need a better IQ than EQ. Such that he or she can handle her or his situation in their presence of mind. Nothing goes away from their hand. Everything will be in their control.
|Sara said: (Jul 2, 2018)|
|As a matter of fact, both are equally important.
But a person who is emotionally balanced is comparatively more capable in handling odds coming in his life than one with higher academics intelligence. EQ comes by experience and not by reading books. People with higher EQ cannot be fooled by others but I doubt higher IQ with lower EQ can be emotional victims.
So, when it comes to preference, I would go for more EQ.
|Mahesh said: (Jun 29, 2018)|
|Both IQ and EQ are important. If someone has both IQ and EQ good, he will be very smart. If one has low EQ, may be we call them as introvert. And they cannot be a good leader. They can't understand other people, and other people can;t understand them, simply society won't like them. But if they has good IQ, they will be good at whatever they work. So if I get a chance to hire, I don't mind hiring introverts some time, if they are good at work. Simply they live different kind of lives.
But you should note that it's not possible to change our IQ or EQ suddenly. We all are different, we all are unique. We should be happy with what we are. At the same time, we should try to improve both IQ and EQ. And also the education should improve both of these.
|Ritu.. said: (Jun 20, 2018)|
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.
|Hrishi said: (Jun 19, 2018)|
|In many situations we require both EQ and IQ, if anyone has higher IQ but not has EQ, then he or she can't handle situations in life. Hence for neat survival of life we Require both equally. EQ=IQ.|
|Abhishek K Sharma said: (Jun 17, 2018)|
|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.
|Bharti Jain said: (Jun 7, 2018)|
|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.|
|Riyas M K said: (Jun 5, 2018)|
|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.|
|Ashrit said: (May 22, 2018)|
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.
|Dynasty said: (May 18, 2018)|
|We can't deny, the both are the most relevant aspects to us humans. Lucky we are if we have both of them equally balanced and controlled. But perhaps, my opinion to this topic since we are ought to choose one. I would rather choose EQ. Why? Because I'm that person who has a high IQ but tend to have a low EQ, and also suffering from a bipolar disordworsest of the researchers say, that the person who is intelligent have mental problems. And, that makes it even worse in your living. So, I chose EQ.|
|Komal said: (May 15, 2018)|
Here we are discussing EQ or IQ. In my opinion, both are equally if you want to be a success in your life you have to be balanced both EQ and IQ. With less EQ, you can't understand people's emotions and without IQ you can't understand what we learn.
|Mohamed Shahir said: (May 14, 2018)|
|In our life EQ and IQ both are important, but EQ is greater than IQ.
EQ is the most important thing in family and business life.
So, my opinion is EQ>IQ.
|Prabhu Mantappa Madari said: (May 11, 2018)|
|I go with EQ because even though you have IQ but you don't have EQ it's against humanity. When you don't respond to a person who gives more importance, then what is the use of IQ. Again if we want to be successful in our life we have to connect emotionally for our work, then comes determination dedication etc. If you're not connected emotionally the life will become clock hands.|
|S Latika said: (May 4, 2018)|
|We need both EQ and IQ in our lives. But the thing is we have to balance it according to the situations. It is not that a person should have higher of either of them.
IQ shows how intelligent we are (that's what our education board needs).
EQ shows how emotional we are.
Now, If a person has high EQ, he is attached to a person. Whereas a person with more technical stuff tends to take in more IQ.
|Vikrant Singh said: (Apr 28, 2018)|
|According to my opinion, those people have a good IQ will always find a solution to cope out with a situation and That's what today world looking for like an example those who went to interview a typical situation is put in front of them and a person with IQ can easily handle it. Nowadays, your mental appearance is more important than your physical appearance. He/she never become a bookworm lives a practical life they don't need to fight competitive exam because they Can make their future bright in other private sectors where is a need of intelligence and after all in our country we found many EQ person compare to IQ and world record are made from HIGH IQ, not For HIGH EQ.|
|Bhawna said: (Apr 25, 2018)|
|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.
|Sunil said: (Apr 21, 2018)|
According to my opinion, both IQ and EQ play a vital role in person's life. People should have a balanced temperament about both of these.
Because these are the dependent on the situation. According to situation man should have used their IQ and EQ both.
|Shubham Sharma said: (Apr 11, 2018)|
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.
|Shitanshu Kumar said: (Apr 8, 2018)|
|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.|
|Vikash Shah said: (Mar 28, 2018)|
|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.
|Naveen said: (Mar 24, 2018)|
|IQ and EQ have their own importance in our life and both should be in balanced proportion. I feel IQ makes us ambitious but EQ put limits on these ambitions. High IQ and Low EQ are the traits can be observed in terrorists.|
|Prit Ranjan said: (Mar 23, 2018)|

So, today our topic is EQ or IQ. I prefer both EQ and IQ. Emotional quotient is important for our social life. As we all live in a society. We need better EQ for our personal and social behaviour and character. Whereas better IQ is needed for our knowledge so that we can take good decisions to become successful in our life. There should be a balance between both, one should not outweigh the other. Both acts as two wheels in our life in form of a cycle.

I think both EQ and IQ should be balanced in a proper way to handle different type of problem. As we know that, There may be a problem where eq dominate rather IQ like if you are a businessman and sells furniture. In this case, you can make a lot of money by selling it but it can increase deforestation. Therefore sometimes a good eq is also required.

|According to me, both EQ and IQ is important for a living person, if anybody wants to live properly, in the other side if anybody doesn't have a balance on eq & iq he is lacking in the life.
Iq means intelligence and eq - emotional quotient both are important.
We have to make a balance between them, everybody is busy in making their iq and they forget about their eq, so if we don't stop chasing one then in no time we become same as a machine.
|Akanksha Jain said: (Mar 14, 2018)|
|Both EQ and IQ is required in our life but Your IQ should be more than your EQ because sometimes with the help of your IQ you can decide that which EQ is good at which condition.|

In my opinion, both EQ and IQ are equally important in our life because there is some situation where we have to think emotionally and somewhere we have to think intelligently. So both are equally important.
|Suaj Kumar said: (Mar 4, 2018)|
This is Suraj Kumar.
As per my opinion, both have equal importance in our life. In any situation, both should be balanced. For example:- at the end of the examination, if we have to attend 5 (any no. ) questions in last minutes; then this time these two (EQ & IQ) have to mention equally. A life that at any stage of our life exam, it has to maintain.

Here we are discussing EQ and IQ. As from my opinion, EQ and IQ both are important in our daily life as well as in our personal relations. Firstly, let us understand the meaning of EQ and 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.

|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 and IQ both are important for human being. With the help of EQ we understand other in a better manner and we take care of them. And IQ help us how to handle problems nd how to understand the social issues.
|Preeti said: (Feb 18, 2018)|
|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.|
|T.S Biradar said: (Feb 14, 2018)|
|According to me, IQ Intelligence quotient is to very important survive life. EQ Emotional Quotient part of our life, in life and IQ should be more than We we should maintain, we have to understand the emotional of others. For that we have to give using IQ vd a positive response.|
|Hemal said: (Feb 14, 2018)|
|As Suresh said I totally agree with him one must develope both portion eq and IQ. Eq is must require for understanding and IQ should be use in manner to help others with good eq that is point.|
|Anjali said: (Feb 14, 2018)|
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.
|Eswar said: (Feb 13, 2018)|
|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. So, EQ IQ both are so important to survive in this society. If a man having the good of EQ (emotional quotient) but don't have IQ then the above example just reversed. It is controllable but can't run.|
|Visa said: (Feb 7, 2018)|
|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.|
|Suresh said: (Jan 30, 2018)|
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.
|Kunjal Chawhan said: (Jan 25, 2018)|
|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.
IQ generally relates us to knowledge base while EQ to emotions and social based.

According to me, EQ is hardly mandatory to all of them because emotion is connected between to us to an another person and emotions are helps to me understanding the what is the problem in me and someone.
IQ is the intelligent quotient and it plays a role in my life to achieve a name, money and everything. If your IQ level is good so you survive anywhere with respect. But increment of IQ level is beyond us to my limit.
Good EQ and IQ makes a complete successful man.
|Shilpa said: (Jan 21, 2018)|
My name is Shilpa.
EQ deals with personal life with our emotions, stands for emotional quotient which is necessary for being a part of society but on the other side IQ is must in order to get successful in today, s life and stands for intelligence quotient and in order to get success in personal and as well as in professional life we must have both. A combo of both lead to a successful man with respected soul.

|A person with good emotional intelligence will understand the importance of every small and big things in life including the importance of sharpening his brain to achieve what he wants in life.|
|Mahendarreddy said: (Jan 16, 2018)|
|In my point of view, both EQ and IQ are important because they are like two different sides of a coin EQ deals with our personal feelings and IQ deals with our intelligence, every organisation want to have such employees who can balance both in similar manner, EQ is required to work properly with his/her team, and to manage risk, stress and to move on with any kind of situation but I Q deals with ones intelligence I, e how well he/ she can perform in maths, logics, reasonings and he/ she manages the situation logically hence I conclude that EQ and IQ is essential In same quantities without EQ no IQ.|
|Arham said: (Jan 11, 2018)|
A good EQ and a good IQ is really important for everyone to be a successful and a respected person.
In a society, EQ helps to be communicated to the public. A good EQ leads to be respectful person in a society.
And a good IQ lead to be successful in his professional world. I know IQ may vary from person to person but EQ can be changeable by him/her.
|Sid said: (Jan 10, 2018)|
|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.|
|Rishabh Gupta said: (Jan 1, 2018)|
|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.|

|Even though people are discussing about EQ or IQ we must realize that the sense of expressing our thoughts about EQ or IQ in such a type of website itself projecting ourselves as EQ dominated persons!|
|Ankit Rana said: (Dec 26, 2017)|
|I think EQ should be given priority here. A person with good EQ will be required in every aspect of life. Either in a corporate world or in social societies. He may work in any field after he is having a good knowledge of emotions of others. And we know this a person with good emotions will possess a good sound mind then surely he will have a good IQ. A person having good IQ can think himself as superior with high ego and he will not respect emotions of other.|

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.
|Sivanya Jesulam said: (Dec 25, 2017)|
|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.|

|I think both IQ and EQ should be possessed by an individual but EQ has an upper hand because a person\'s intelligence is of no use unless and until he can apply it in daily tasks.|
|Akash Vishwakarma said: (Dec 3, 2017)|
|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.
Its very well said, "give me a person with reasonable common sense and decency, I will make a leader out of him".
|Fernanda said: (Dec 3, 2017)|
|A psychopath or sociopath can have a high IQ, and a low EQ. A high EQ it's equal with a mature personality; you are aware of your self, your reactions, your emotions, you have empathy for others, and you do your best in educating your own inner in order to live a valuable life and not hurt anybody. Also, helps you to take all the responsability of your own action. A high IQ helps you solve your problems in a quite short time, to find valuable solutions, improves your creativity, and participate in a efficient way to improve your life.|

|EQ : Emotion Quotient. It is very important for the successful person, it connects through the heart but IQ is also a major role in logical thinking and taking decisions in regular life. Both are equally importance.|
|Himanshu said: (Nov 29, 2017)|
|I think both IQ and EQ are quintessential for our personality. Higher IQ enables us to think more logically and Scientifically while higher EQ enables us more empathetic and helps us to read other's mind.
It's a common perception that higher IQ tends to lower sympathy to others but this is a myth. A person may have both the higher IQ as well as higher EQ subsequently. For eg. Einstein was terrified about the human loss when US dropped the nuclear weapon in Japan. The corporate world is concern high IQ level is must. But at the same time, we can not neglect EQ good emotional quotient is also must for happier family life.
|Arun said: (Nov 23, 2017)|
|I think both EQ and IQ are quintessential in our life. IQ makes a man think logically. EQ makes him to think according to his emotions. Both EQ and IQ must be balanced in life. One must take decisions logically by considering the emotions of the people.|
|Tina said: (Nov 21, 2017)|
|Both emotional quotient (EQ) and intelligence quotient (IQ) is indispensable for developing the overall personality of an individual. But EQ has a little edge over IQ because IQ is dependent on EQ. No individual can take rational decisions without emotional stability no matter how much intelligence he/she possesses.|
|Payal Bagri said: (Nov 15, 2017)|
|Both IQ and EQ are complementary to each other. A person having good IQ thinks logically and is not affected by other peoples emotions. IQ is cognition and EQ is affection. A person with good EQ thinks emotionally. A person having high IQ will not consider others interests and sentiments. This may lead to problems in group activity whereas a person with high EQ might be easily influenced by emotions and may not focus on work. So a balance of both is desirable but this happens hardly. A little of high EQ is good according to me.|

|I think both EQ and IQ have their own importance and people having a perfect balance of both is usually rare. But I think it is this disbalance that makes us different from others. People with very high IQ may tend to think always logically but their decisions may lack emotions. High EQ people may be good at understanding others feelings but at times may be driven away by emotions which is not always the right thing to do.
So I think a disbalance up to a certain extent is normal but it should not be large.
|Anjali said: (Nov 2, 2017)|
|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.|
|Sukanya said: (Oct 30, 2017)|
|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.
EQ or IQ
