With IQ being Intellectual Quotient (ability to understand and organize information), and EQ being Emotional Quotient (ability to understand and organize people). If we were to assume that they are mutually exclusive so a person could only have one or the other, which would you want?
I would want a high EQ. That would make it easy to surround myself with people who know more then me (people with a high IQ and low EQ). My high EQ would allow me to know if they were being honest with me when they gave me advice and answered my questions. In exchange I would help them connect with others who have specialized knowledge in other areas.
It isn’t WHAT you know, but WHO you know. I would know all the people who had all the answers, and they would want to share those answers with me.
