Students: what is your EQ?

As a student have you ever wonder what your IQ score is or wished it were higher? Well no matter the level of your Intelligence Quotient or IQ, when it comes to happiness and success in life, EQ or Emotional Intelligence is just as if not more important than IQ. Emotional intelligence helps you build stronger relationships, succeed at school, and achieve your career and personal goals.
