IQ often determines a person’s lower limit of achievement, while EQ determines a person’s upper limit, and the height a person can reach is often determined by his EQ.


High EQ vs Low EQ

Emotionally intelligent people are always in a good position in life and work because they are not only good at recognizing the emotions of others, but also good at controlling their own behavior and emotions.

In life, people with high EQ will feel as comfortable around them as if they have been best friends for years. The most typical characteristic of a low EQ person is the inability to put oneself in others’ shoes. We see this all over the place. People with low EQ often don’t realize how their actions affect their partners.
