Emotional Intelligence vs. Cognitive Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence - Understanding your own emotions and
those of others, and being able to use this information to bring
about the best outcome for all concerned. Knowing where emotions
come from and being able to manage your own and those of others.
Knowing what emotions mean and what information they are
providing. Being able to work well with others as well as alone.
Being able to combine cognitive knowledge with emotional
knowledge and use them in tandem.
Cognitive Intelligence - Intellectual abilities such as logic,
reason, reading, writing, analyzing and prioritizing. These go
on in your own head and utilize only the neocortex, not the
emotional centers of the brain which also provide crucial
information. These abilities do not require any social skills
per se, i.e., you can solve a math equation by yourself, or
write an essay, or balance a business
