Having high intelligent quotient can be a genius but for emotional intelligence, you need not have degrees or high IQ level. The vital characteristic of an investor is not to be a genius but to be embedded with features of emotional intelligence like perseverance, disciplined, confidence and open-mindedness which is the key factor to be successful and often leads to having a bigger impact on your returns in the long run.
Having higher degrees is not emotional intelligence but it is the emotional discipline, the ability to have control over your own emotions as well as that of other people’s emotions. Emotional intelligence is very important for investors as it helps business leaders to meet the requirements of the employees and to work in a team and handling the team members not only with confidence but through emotionally intelligent ways. Emotional intelligence is not only about self-awareness but also understanding the emotions of employees or taking decisions while investing and using it to steer thoughts and behavior.
