"Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. It is generally said to include 3 skills: Emotional awareness, including the ability to identify your own emotions and those of others; The ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; The ability to manage emotions, including the ability to regulate your own emotions, and the ability to cheer up or calm down another person."
