What is Emotional Intelligence?

Emotional intelligence (EI or EQ) is the capacity to recognise, comprehend and manage one's own emotions, as well as perceive and influence the emotions of others. Introduced in the 1990s by Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer, and popularised by Daniel Goleman, EI encompasses several core skills: emotional awareness (the ability to identify and name one’s emotions), harnessing emotions for tasks like thinking and problem-solving and emotion regulation (controlling one's own emotions and assisting others with theirs). This multidimensional skill is crucial for effective personal, social and professional interactions, distinguishing itself as a key element in human psychological development and behaviour.
