According to a CareerBuilder survey, over 1 in 3 hiring managers placed increased importance on EI in their hiring and promoting decisions. For 71 percent, EI was more important than IQ and 59 percent went as far as to say that they would not hire someone a low EI.

According to statistics compiled by TalentSmart Inc., 90 percent of top performers have high emotional intelligence. EI is responsible for 58 percent of your job performance. And in the long run, people with high EI's earn an average of $29,000 more annually over low EI colleagues.
