Some people think only intellect counts: knowing how to solve problems, knowing how to get by, knowing how to identify an advantage and seize it. But the functions of intellect are insufficient without courage, love, friendship, compassion, and empathy.
Emotions steer our life, it does not matter if we want it or not. Sometimes we feel great happiness and sometimes we feel like victims. Emotional intelligence is more than understanding other people, it is the powerful combination of head and heart.
