Learn more about Emotional Intelligence

Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify, manage, and express the emotions of yourself and others. Emotional intelligence requires an intimate understanding of your own emotions, a high degree of social awareness, a commitment to active listening to understand others, and empathy to make the right decisions at the right time. No matter your role in society, heightened emotional intelligence can help you achieve your personal and professional goals by giving you the tools to understand others and build strong relationships. With emotional intelligence training from Udemy's expert instructors, you can take the first step toward strengthening your relationship with yourself and others.

Frequently asked questions
Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to perceive, control, and evaluate emotions. It relies on the ability to empathize and healthily respond to others’ feelings. Tests that measure EQ will assess how someone feels, rather than their aptitude for specific skills — which is the case for intelligent quotient (IQ) tests. You can break EQ down into four levels: perceiving emotions, reasoning using emotions, understanding emotions, and managing emotions. EQ is essential for good interpersonal communication, as emotionally intelligent people have good self-awareness and can tap into their own feelings relatively easily, making their relationships stronger. Working on one's emotional intelligence may improve quality relationships and relationship-building skills. EQ can be overlooked compared to IQ, but it is actually a good predictor for longevity in relationships and overall functioning in life.
