Emotional Quotient or Emotional Intelligence refers to the ability to perceive, control, and evaluate emotions. Some researchers suggest that emotional intelligence can be learned and strengthened, while other claim it is an inborn characteristic. A number of testing instruments have been developed to measure emotional intelligence, although the content and approach of each test varies.

Research on EQ began with Yale psychologist Peter Salovey and John Mayer of the University of New Hampshire in the late 1980s. EQ is a concept that was further popularized by Daniel Goleman, another well-respected psychologist, who has written many books on the subject and is co-chair of The Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations. While these and many other psychology experts view EQ as a scientific study of social behavior and relationships, the actual science behind measuring EQ is often convoluted at best.

The ability to control various emotions is emotional quotient.
For eg. When somebody purposely provokes and if I keep balanced mind, my EQ is better. EQ is measured by observing ,without their knowledge. IQ is application of intelligence in a situation. Usually it is considered that before employment IQ is required, and after getting a job EQ gets priority !

EQ actually stands for Emotional Intelligence Quotient. Much like an intelligence quotient, or IQ, an EQ is said to be a measure of a persons emotional intelligence. However, there is much debate surrounding the legitimacy of a definition of emotional intelligence quotient, primarily because there is no standard against which it can be measured. A persons EQ can be measured using any one of a number of assessments, including one developed by the aforementioned Salovey and Mayer. Some assessments utilize self-given responses while others are peer-given responses. An EQ test may give insight into a persons personality and psychological make up, but discovering the true meaning of EQ and its relationship to and impact on a persons life and social performance may be years and many studies away from anything definitive
