    I do think that IQ is the base for the success in career requires high accuracy and complexity like IT, scientist, accountant. But high EQ is the key in leadership. People with high EQ will be easily gain success, even in career ladder or in their own businesses.
    What do you think?

    I have to agree with Gary Vaynerchuk on this one (check out the Ask Gary Vee show on youtube, he really shares some great insight for entrepreneurs). His view is that it's not about what your strengths are (be they IQ or EQ - his is EQ) but that you focus on self-awareness and double down on those, rather than try to be good at something you're not. With that in mind, the on you're strongest in is the most important to your career success but that will be different for everyone, and that's fine.

    If you want to be a successful person in your career, to should have to develop your talent. Anyone can get good marks in the last night studies before examination but talent may be by birth or developing it through hard work and experience. Suppose if you are an IT professional you should develop your programming language skills and communication skills to with stand in the firm.

    These days I would have to say EQ is more important, simply because more people have access to information to learn these days. In the past knowledge was held by fewer people, these days knowledge can be obtained by anyone, the internet has changed this.

    I strongly believe that IQ is an advantage. But it is not the major weapon to succeed. It is EQ that pushes someone to the top. I have a lot of batchmates who were the cream of the crop but were not properly placed after graduation. Your determination, your will, and your strength hoist you up.

    In my consulting and leadership practice EQ have always had more importance: listening and understanding others usually leads to success. The ability to evaluate situations from other standpoint(s) leads to better solutions and appraisal.
    On the other hand I think high EQ correlates above average IQ but I don't know it for sure it is just a guess.

    Both are necessary for the success, as when you reach a position of your choice you tend to get egoed by that thing which is very important to be handled very maturely

    Both are important in career to achieve success. EQ usually makes great leaders and team players. Or, IQ is used to establish educational skill and make out persons with off-the-chart brainpower or psychological tests.

    Both are important in our business to achieve success. IQ is needed for us as we are in IT line. A person with high EQ is successful in leadership if the person is working with any other or have its own business.
