After reading the book Emotional Intelligence by Daniel Goleman, I’m having a difficult time comparing emotional intelligence (EQ) with Intelligence Quotient (IQ).
When talking about someone’s IQ we use adjectives as: intelligent, genius, fool, stupid, brilliant, etc.
What adjectives can we use to describe the competences of:
- being able to recognize and name one’s emotions
- being able to recognize and name other people’s emotions
- being able to understand the root cause of certain emotions
- being able to keep calm in the middle of strong emotions
Note: I’m not really sure if this question belongs to Cognitive Science Stack Exchange, if not please point me in the right direction.
