    Emotional intelligence is an underrated quality for entrepreneurs, and a crucial one for
    employees. Simply put, it’s your ability to recognize and control your emotions, and to
    recognize and understand the emotions of others.
    But, why is this quality important, and how can you tell if you have it?

    Emotionally intelligent people aren’t ruled by their thoughts; they are the master of them.

   Are You Emotionally Intelligent?
    When emotional intelligence (EQ) first appeared to the masses, it served as the missing
    link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs
    70% of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into the broadly held assumption
    that IQ was the sole source of success.

    Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as being the critical factor that
    sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack. The connection is so strong that 90%
    of top performers have high emotional intelligence.

    What’s the point of networking if not to get other people to like you? Sure, you need new
    contacts to see you as interesting, competent, professional, and potentially valuable to
    them—but if they don’t also find you likable, nobody will feel motivated to reach out later
    and work with you.

    The reason why all comes down to emotional intelligence, the set of skills and qualities
    that allow people to form deeper, closer relationships with others. Likability is a key
    ingredient in that, and its career benefits are pretty obvious. For instance, being likable
    —and liking your coworkers in return—can increase your chances of getting promoted.
