How's high is your EQ?

What other things can affect your success?  Understanding the difference between Intelligence (IQ) and Emotional Intelligence (EQ).

A brief definition of Intelligence (IQ) is the ability to learn, to understand, or to deal with new information or situations and to be able to apply knowledge to manipulate one’s environment.  If being successful in college was determined by intelligence, it would be pretty easy to see who would be successful and who would not.  But it’s important to understand the limitations of being smart alone.  Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the other kind of smart, and decades of research has uncovered a strong link between high emotional intelligence and overall success.  I know you’re thinking, how can I get me some of that!?  Well, let’s see how much you already have.
