Emotional Intelligence, Cognitive Intelligence, Quality Education


At present school and colleges are expanding very much quantitatively but less attention is being paid at the quality of education. In order to improve the quality of any course, the present study will be conducted, and this study is related to the improvement of the selection criterion of candidates by introducing the significance of testing emotional intelligence also. Till now the gold standard of selection the candidates for any course, has been cognitive intelligence tests. Previous researches had proved that emotional intelligence is much more important than cognitive intelligence. Then it should also be measured or tested. In other words if a student is cognitively intelligent, will he/she also be emotionally intelligent relatively or not. Is it different according to sex, locality etc. so in order to find out the difference between cognitive and emotional intelligence of students we have performed this study.
