Would You Prefer To Have A High EQ Or Be Mentally Strong? Learn The Differences!

Have you ever asked yourself about the difference between emotional intelligence and mental strength? It's a thought-provoking question because there are many misunderstandings about what it really means to be mentally strong and many myths about how you can develop emotional intelligence.

So, What Is Emotional Intelligence?


The definition of the term 'emotional intelligence' has shifted over the years. According to the Cambridge Dictionary's basic definition, emotional intelligence is the ability to understand the way other people feel and react and to use this ability to make correct judgments and to avoid or solve issues.

Although the concept of emotional intelligence appeared in the 1960s, it didn't become widely famous until 1995, when Daniel Goleman published the book 'Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ,' which became a bestseller.

However, over the years, many people have misunderstood Goleman's statements. While he argues that emotional intelligence can offer a competitive advantage in certain environments, he also notes that a high EQ won't necessarily lead you to higher academic achievement or better SAT scores, since those things depend more on IQ.

Goleman identified five basic components of EQ:

  • Self-awareness. The ability to notice and understand your emotions and drives, as well as their effect on other people.
  • Internal motivation. A passion for work that goes far beyond money and status, like an inner vision of what is significant in life or the joy of doing something useful.
  • Self-regulation. The ability to redirect disruptive impulses and moods, and to think before acting.
  • Empathy. The ability to recognize the emotional makeup of others and the willingness to behave to them according to their emotional reactions.
  • Social skills. These include proficiency in managing relationships and the ability to build rapport with other people by finding common ground.

And, What is Mental Strength?


The term mental strength is frequently used interchangeably with mental toughness. However, depending on how someone defines mental toughness, there is a good chance that the two terms aren't the same thing.

Mental toughness is mostly used when people are referring to others like elite athletes or Navy SEALs; many of them are testing their bodies to their limits by checking how much pain they can endure. However, most of us won't need to run on a broken ankle or physically intimidate our opponents. It's a type of toughness that isn't a skill most of us need in our everyday lives.

Being mentally strong doesn't mean acting tough. It's about being aware of your feelings and emotions, learning from difficult experiences, and living accordingly to your values.

Mental strength has three basic components:

  • Regulating your thoughts. This involves learning how to train your mind to think in a useful way. That might mean ignoring self-doubt and replacing self-criticism with self-compassion.
  • Managing your emotions. Being aware of your feelings lets you understand how those emotions affect the way you think and behave. It might include embracing your emotions—even when they're uncomfortable—or it might be about acting contrary to your feelings when they don't serve you well.
  • Behaving productively. Deciding to take action that will make your life better, even when you struggle with motivation and delayed gratification, is the key to becoming mentally strong.

The Difference Between The Two


Emotional intelligence is a part of mental strength. However, mental strength goes beyond feelings and addresses the thoughts and actions that affect the total quality of your life.

Mental strength includes developing everyday habits that build mental muscle. Also, it includes giving up bad habits that hold you back.

The good news is that anyone can increase their EQ and build mental strength. Those skills will serve you well not only professionally, but also personally.

  1. This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 8TH OF APRIL 2017, And I saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful great spell caster called DR Omoluyi on the forum. I never believed it, because I've never heard nor learnt anything about magic before. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about spells, not until i visited ( [email protected] ) and behold he did it for me and restored my marriage of 6 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me within 12 to 16 hours just as I have read on the forum.. I was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging me for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of expressions, and I don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you DR Omoluyi, you are a God sent to me and my entire family. Visit him today via Email and Website on ( [email protected] ) or [ http://www.doctorokpamenspells.com ]. Am Lori Dante by name.

    After being in relationship with Kevin for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believe in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I met a spell caster called DR. UGO WONDERS and I emailed him. He told me there was no problem that everything will be okay, and that in two days, that my ex will return to me. after he cast the spell in 24 hours, surprisingly in the second day, around 4pm My ex called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there.

  4. Reading Jim Kulzer article about a spell caster namely Dr landy, i will say the best that ever happen to me this year based on the fact that i had a lot problem that i was trying to over come.I had problems at home which affected my work greatly. I was now always in a cross fire with my boss.I really don't want to tell story here so i guess i would just go strange to the point on what i have to say.My wife wanted out of our marriage for no just reason.We were married for four year and i think we were happy though we had no kids, it was her idea not to have any cos she wasn't ready to be a mom yet and i was okay with it i mean i didn't like the idea but i went along with it just to please her.It was always like that i mean she always get what she wants.All i wanted was to see her happy i could never do anything that will make her so unhappy.This was all i did wrong that is make her have it her way all the time. I mean that was the reason she gave during our therapy session.She wanted out of the marriage cos i was to nice. From what she said, i was the kind of man ever woman will die for but she wanted a real man to enforce his will no her meaning was i was to week a man for her.And that was the least of therapy session we had cos like she said we where wasting our life together and no amount of therapy was going to get us back together.I was a total mess thinking of how i was being dumped based on how much i loved my wife and how good i treated her,I really didn't know if she was ungrateful or just confused about what she wanted that is mid-life crisis but the bottom line is that she left me and who knows maybe for another man.I was still in love with her, she was the love of my life and i still wanted her to come back that was when i saw Eva-Yolanda article on Dr landy When i contacted him he made me known that i will have to go through all the spell casting process.Like he said most people are too scared cos of trust issues.I had trust issues, but getting my wife back was my ulterior motive and from my experience with Dr landy i can tell you he is 100% truthful and honest with his customer.I was asked to get some material to prepare the spell and after which he sent me a package contain the spell and the rest just happen the way it was suppose to happen i got my wife back and she was my wife back again i mean she was not that woman who wanted a hard man she was woman i fell in love with who loved me cos i am me.If you want help or fell he can help contact him with his email address [email protected]

  12. Why could my Husband not be loyal to me, respect me as his wife, love me and only me without breaking our marriage vows? My Husband’s behaviors caused me to think maybe we were not meant to be together. It hurts to the bone when your life partner turns against you, making you sad instead of being your motivator, always engaging you in constant argument and confusion with the kids. The worst is him being unfaithful, seeing other women is like stabbing you in the back. My better half caused me so much pain for over 2years and 4months, we reassembly separated like 6weeks because his continuous reckless behavior became unbearable. I searched for permanent solution to get him back to us both physical and spiritual throughout the entire 6weeks. I was lucky to have Dr. Wakina ([email protected]) handle my case after reading alot of his spell stories. “Can you help me get my Husband back” was the request I made and the rest is history. My marital home is even better since the love spell changed and brought back my Husband. Dr. Wakina made me believe in second chance.
