Commonly called “EQ” or “EI”, our Emotional Intelligence (in the simplest meaning) is how well you and I manage our emotions. However, EQ falls short on enriching our lives without a correspondingly high level of Social Intelligence.
Our appropriate social response to others is necessary for our happiness and success.Thus, any comprehensive description and effective application of Emotional Intelligence includes Social Intelligence as a partner.
Taken together, Social and Emotional Intelligence are referred to as SEI, SEQ, or S+EI.
