How Did You Score?
Your results indicate a high score on emotional intelligence.

What Does Your Score Mean?
People who score high on emotional intelligence tend to be skilled at interpreting, understanding, and acting upon emotions. They are adept at dealing with social or emotional conflicts, expressing their feelings, and dealing with emotional situations.

It's important to remember that no matter how good your score is, there is always room to improve your emotional intelligence. Consider areas where you are not as strong and think of ways that you can learn and grow. Take stock of your strong points and find ways to continue to develop and apply these skills

The importance of emotional intelligence is largely overlooked, if you ask me. People think book-smarts is enough ...

Well, I think it might depend on what kind of book smarts and what level of emotional intelligence is being considered. Ime, I've found that critical thinking is important in both realms.

Critical thinking without emotional intelligence is woefully inadequate. You need emotional intelligence if you're going to successfully interact with other human beings.

That's why I see it as a requirement in both realms. I don't think critical thinking will transfer well professionally if it's not applied via emotional intelligence. We have no choice but to interact with others, so those who are successful, generally (I guess), are able to master both.
