Abstract: Intelligence is one quality t hat all mental activity, the expression of superior organization of all
psychological processes, including emotio nal - motivational. As the forming and developing the mechanisms
and op erations of all other mental functions we encounter a flexible and versatile intelligence. Unlike IQ,
emotional intelligence (EI) has proven to be a more reliable pr edictor of success in personal and prof essional
life. IQ and IE is not opposing powers, but r ather separated, but first they can not operate at maximum
