How would you define emotional intelligence?

Emotional intelligence is the outcome of the close cooperation between thoughts and emotions. Thoughts alone may tell us we wan t or don ’t want something, but our emotion s can have another story to tell. On the other hand, emotions by themselves can compel us to attack or withdraw, while thoughts can help reveal a second, less urgent and much wiser emotional impulse. Th e alignment of thought and emotion is emotional intelligence; a united voice an d accurate guide.
