Did you know that as a person’s natural emotional needs are met, healthy behaviour naturally follows. We only become debilitated in our actions, when we don’t know the emotions we are feeling or experiencing…Emotional Quotient or EQ, needs to be balanced out with Intellectual Quotient or IQ.

      A primary goal of developing EQ, is to become aware and improve our Emotional Literacy.  Emotional Literacy is a vital component to human nature, which allows us to communicate feelings in a healthy manner. When we know how we feel, we are better able to fulfill our emotional needs. When we communicate our feelings, we get the emotional support and understanding we need from others. A huge payback is when we are able to show our emotional support and understanding to others, that we establish better interpersonal relationships.

     The history of Emotional Intelligence, goes back to 1937, when Robert Thorndike was writing about Social Intelligence, and David Wechsler, American Psychologist, was leading the way with his intelligence tests. In 1997, Multi-Health Systems, Inc., started calling the Bar-On test a “measure of emotional intelligence.”  Psychologist, Reuven Bar-On, developed a self-report measure of a number of personality traits which he believed make up emotional intelligence.

      Many books are written on the subject of Emotional Intelligence. Daniel Goleman, Ph.D., and author of the New York Times bestseller Emotional Intelligence and Social Intelligence, has been authoring articles on the subject for years.

     Daniel Goleman says, “IQ matters,” but argues, “it is only part of what makes people succeed in their work and personal lives, and  it is not the most important part.”  In his books, “he addresses how the role of emotions, such as, empathy, anger, humor, anxiety, optimism, melancholy and happiness plays a part in all aspects of our lives. People can learn how to manage emotions and have the power to transform relationships with emotions, and through them, the relationships they have with colleagues, family and friends.”
