The modern world's rapidly changing socioeconomic scenario necessitates a higher level of 'Emotional and Social Intelligence' in people. Emotion is defined as "any human being's reactive power or feelings; and intelligence as a way of using that emotion in certain places." "Emotions are our automatic responses to others, created by our thoughts, feelings, and actions, and they allow people to maintain their social belongingness" (Singh 2003). We may not realise it because we are human, but when we express sympathy to someone who is upset, we are displaying our emotional reaction and, as a result, our intelligence in the same situation.
So, Emotional Intelligence is a way of expressing our emotions in situations where they are most needed. Emotion is the combination of love, care, hatred, anger, happiness, sadness, guilt, and excitement that we express to others (Singh 2003). Emotions are an individual's true feelings. Emotions are extremely important in our daily lives. In society, we can be happy or unhappy based on our own emotions. Not only does emotional intelligence matter, but so does social intelligence.
