Someone with high emotional intelligence would be very aware of the emotions surrounding a situation but wouldn’t have the necessary moral intelligence to make a morally sound, quick decision if they needed to. Emotional intelligence is supposed to have three skills associated with it. The ability to identify your own emotions, harness those emotions, and manage those emotions. It is most importantly used to manage your own emotions to relieve stress. Both of these are extremely important and similar because they help people make better decisions based on their surroundings whether it be an ethical dilemma or analyzing emotions. However, they are different because emotional intelligence focuses more on reading others’ emotions and handling your own. It does not incorporate morals or ethics.

1. If a person has high emotional intelligence and it doesn’t balance out with their moral intelligence being on the low end, this can cause conflict. High emotional intelligent people are more likely to have characteristics such as curiousness, accept/embrace change, open minded, know the strengths and weaknesses of oneself, and develop good/long lasting relationships with people. Yes these are all good qualities to have, but life is more than just about emotions, we can’t forget about how moral intelligence is just as important. We act and feel a certain way about a situation by why do we feel this way? Morals help explain the what and why of how we feel and act, if we don’t understand what morals we stand for, do we really know our identity?
2. Both emotional and moral intelligence are the similar and important because, at the end of the day, they exist to help a person make more ethical decisions in their their personal and professional success. If a person has both of them and they learned how each benefit from one another, a person is more likely to be aware of the values, goals, and ethics needed to be successful. This comes with time and not something we learn over night. Knowledge comes with experience and it’s good to make mistakes to learn from them. They are different from each other because emotional intelligence focuses solely on being aware of ones emotions, how to express them, and handling interpersonal relationships in a good manner, does not focus on applying values or ethics. Moral intelligence focuses on understanding the basis of right and wrong of a decision. It highlights how to apply ethics to ones goals, values, and actions to justify them.
