What the community says about Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ
- #2 of 138
in What are the best Self-help books"There really is something ground breaking about the idea that IQ is a far less important factor in how successful we are in life. It makes total sense if you think about it. Understanding when someone needs a hug or just needs you to get the bleep away from them is a million times more useful than knowing the arc tangent of one or being able to calculate hundreds of digits of pie very quickly. And unlike IQ you can change your EQ (Emotional Intelligence)! Let me just repeat that in Caps: YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR EQ!!! This realization changed my life, not just at my job but with my husband and kids too. Check it out. You won't regret it.""I was looking for a self help book to get me more in tune with my emotions. This book had so many good reviews on amazon that I was curious about it and decided to buy. Great book. It was informative and conversational."
- "A good read and an interesting take on happiness and intelligence. This might not directly be related to a positive attitude, but it explores the benefits of maintaining a postive emotional state and its toll on your mental health. Overall a decent read but not quite what i was looking for. "
- "As a part of my New Year's Resolution, I told myself I would reignite my passion for psychology. I short search on Amazon.com brought me to this book. The reviews were great, and I decided to order it. Now having read it, I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone interested in emotional intelligence compared to IQ."
- "Looking to learn about emotion and why it's so powerful? This is certainly the book for you, the text explores the two parts of a humans brain, the emotional and the logical side. This book will explain both sides and how to control each part of the brain to help with better decision making."
- "This book really changed my life. I bought the book after a close friend recommended it and I really enjoyed the experience. I learned to how to better manage my business life and personal life because of it. The book taught me better ways to deal with stress and how to develop emotional intelligence. I was able to get through the book in a week and successfully implement its teaching into my life. Now, I am able to handle my emotions better and I look forward to putting more of what I learned into action."
- "I found this to be dubiously researched and altogether non-academic. I've spent many years in the field, as a farmer, and I've learned a lot of psychology by watching the other farmhands, and what this guy doesn't know, you could write a research paper about. I'm not even kidding. How does something like this even pass inspection? In my line of work, if we see some bad rice, we don't even pick it. Same with this stuff,leave it on the vine, as they say."
- "I found this book on my long quest for self-improvement and I'm so glad I did. The book is clearly written and full of tools to develop emotional skills and use them to find success in life. This is a valuable read for anyone who is looking to nurture personal growth."
- "I love Daniel Goldman's book "Emotional Intelligence." It's a great resource for thinking about what makes you you, and gives hope that you can become a better you, as well as guide others (such as your children) to have better prospects for success and more mindfulness in their lives.""I learned a lot from the books, but it was quite lengthy with a lot of filler in between the main points. I'd suggest looking up the author's talks online instead.""This is an interesting book that's full of flaws and holes. Don't take it seriously."
- "Emotional literacy is not fixed early in life according to the Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More than IQ. It seems our emotional intelligence may have more control in our lives that our logic thinking. And that is takes the emotional and intellectual to kind of work together to help us achieve success."
