    *Emotional Intelligence is a general term underlying effective performance. It involves the ability to understand one's own emotions and feelings and to harness them in support of activities such as thinking, decision making, and communication. People who are "emotionally intelligent" know how to control their emotions and feelings for their own benefit and the benefit of others.

    Self-awareness measures an individual's understanding of his or her strengths and weaknesses coupled with drive to improve them. High scorers try to identify what they are good at and the areas where they need to try and improve. They ask for feedback and try to learn from experience.

    Intuition involves using instincts, hunches, and feelings along with facts to guide decisions. High scorers are able to use all these sources of information when making decisions.

    Emotions ( Self Regulation)measures the ability to recognize and understand one's feelings and emotions and to manage their impact on other people. High scorers recognize their mood states and how they can affect their behavior.
