People Working in the Public Sector More Likely to have a Better Emotional IQ

Emotional IQ

It probably must be the grind that people working in the private sector face, but a recent study by a team of experts from the University of Haifa has reported that private sector employees happen to have a better emotional intelligence quotient when compared to people working in the public sector. The better emotional IQ is also the reason behind people from the private sector being more enthusiastic about their work place when compared to people from the public sector.

The study involved a survey of 809 workers who were working in four groups. Out of all the organizations, two were from the public sector, while the other two were from the private. After a close examination, it was found that people from the public sector had better political skills, though there was not any noteworthy disparity in their emotional IQ levels.

Talking about the new revelations, an author of the study, Dr. Galt Meisler said that the stress levels of people working in the public sector were responsible for the ineffectiveness of emotional intelligence among such people.

It needs to be informed that high levels of emotional IQ helps in minimizing the negative effects of high stress jobs, where people have constant problem of burning out.
