From the Character Lab: What does Research Say about SOCIAL IQ
Dr. Marc Brackett of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence talks with Character Lab about emotional intelligence.
Research shows that social/emotional intelligence is positively associated with functioning competently in society, being liked by others, having a stronger support system (friends and family), having healthy relationships, having better mental health, and problem-solving more effectively. By helping to improve people’s social relationships, social and emotional learning programs have been shown to enable participants to demonstrate greater enjoyment of and stronger performance in school and engage less in risky behavior (including drug use and violence).
