HOW CAN I KNOW MY EQ AND CAN EQ BE INCREASED? Like IQ, our EQ can be assessed. Unlike IQ, our EQ can be increased. A preliminary step to maximizing your EQ knowledge is completing a validated assessment (which describes and measures your EQ) such as the Social and Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP) which includes a downloadable evaluation and results. The action you take after your assessment is your decision: acting on the change recommendations through self-improvement, a formal coaching process, or procrastination.
Many resources and books on EQ are available.
