    In my opinion, this is an extreme complex business in which IQ and EQ are equally important in our leadership and technical teams.Sure, most of us want to be led by people we admire for both their leadership skills; self control and intellectual capacity. However, this industry offers a great career to the super-nerds, who have the IQ to create major innovative changes to the way in which we develop and commercialize oil and if you know someone who is blessed with more IQ than EI, tell them to jump on this bus, we have room for everyone!

    I have found How EQ Is More Important Than IQ in Making Career that will make you clear more.

       Hope you are doing well. I can clearly understand about your concern.  And according to me EQ will really guarantee the success.  EQ is strongly influenced by personal qualities such as perseverance, self-control and skill in getting along with the others. The people with high EQ are better able to work in teams, adjust to change and be flexible. Also high EQ people can understand the chain reaction that occurs that brings about their emotions. They can also explain why they were experiencing certain feelings without blaming someone else.

    The following five elements defines the people who have high emotional intelligence

    1. Self awareness:

    They know about their strength, weakness and they work on these areas so they perform well.

    2. Self regulation:

    They think before they act.

    3. Motivation:

     People with a high EI are willing to defer immediate results for long-term success. They are highly productive, love a challenge, and are effective in whatever they do.

    4. Empathy:

    They live their lives in am open, honest way.

    5.Social skills:

     They can manage disputes, are excellent communicators, and are masters at building and maintaining relationships.


    Hope it helps you!!!

    Take Care :)
