Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is knowing about the human condition, the properties of emotions and the sensing and translating of feelings and how they function and relate to what works and does not in your life. Don’t sweat it, you are doing it all day every day. Why? Because all human motivations are based on the believe that they will lead us or make us happy. I.e. I buy this car-A instead of that car-B, because I feel it is car-A is better and that will make me happier than the other car-B. Intelligence that is based on facts and cause and effect is less and less important due to the overwhelming information delivery from the internet. To gauge if the information works for you, you need your emotions of what feels right or better.
