According to Wikipedia, emotional intelligence is “the capability of individuals to recognize their own
emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior, and manage and/or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve one’s goals.”
