What is your emotional IQ?

  1. You got: 48/140

    Your emotional IQ is pretty low, which means that you tend to have trouble reading other people's reactions and empathizing with them. Sometimes this trouble comes from not being tapped into your own emotions and not giving yourself the space to feel them. The good news is that these are skills you can improve! Plenty of exercises are available to help people read social situations and connect to others. Start by trying to get in touch with your own emotional world, and realizing the physical trappings of your own internal experiences.

  2. You got: 73/140

    Your emotional IQ is above average, which is pretty great, but there's always room for improvement! The best way to learn how to empathize and understand others is by tuning in to your own emotional experiences. Notice how your deep feelings translate into behavior, and you will see that others tend to exhibit the same physical reactions to pain, happiness, and excitement. Your aptitude for emotional understanding is already high, so with a little work you should see an amazing increase in your ability to connect to and understand others!

    Your emotional IQ is well above average! You are doing a great job connecting to people, understanding them, and empathizing with them. You probably take time to take stock and deal with whatever is happening in your emotional life, and that makes you better attuned to those around you as well. Having a high emotional IQ can benefit your family life and social life, but it often has a surprising impact on your professional life as well. Keep developing your deep emotional aptitude and you can expect great things in your life!

But, even if they choose a different path, they often experience tremendous success in their personal and professional life. Good going!
