It is an ability to use emotions to help one solve problems effectively and live a more fulfilling life. Emotional intelligence without intelligence, or intelligence without emotion is only a part of the solution. The complete solution is head working with heart.
 
There are significant benefits for improving  emotional intelligence. Individuals who are strongly self-aware are also usually more self-confident, and as such, they attract others to their social circle more easily. They are able to quickly reach out and develop trusting relationships, both in the community and at work. They can admit mistakes, laugh at themselves and learn to do better the next time. People with high emotional intelligence and good communication skills are better at reading their environment, being intuitive and sensing what is going on around them. Their good communication skills allow them to speak to any and all individuals they encounter, no matter their rank in an organization. They have a broad circle of professional and personal friends, they can count on, because they have developed long-lasting relationships. Individuals with high emotional intelligence and good communication skills also know how to "manage" relationships and how to apply influence when and where needed. They are inspiring and motivate others to succeed.

Marian Diamond, a professor of Anatomy/Neuroanatomy at the University of California, Berkeley, and a former Director of the Lawrence Hall of Science, as a result of her research in the laboratory, suggested to stimulate all the senses, but not necessarily all at once. A multisensory enrichment develops all of the cortex: whereas, an input from a single task stimulates the growth of only a precise area of the brain. She also suggests setting the stage for enriching the cortex by first providing a steady source of positive emotional support - love, encouragement, warmth and caring. She suggests to present to the child a series of challenges that are neither too easy nor too difficult for the child at his or her stage of development. Allowing for social interaction is very important, as well as providing sound nutrition. She also mentions the importance of promoting the development of a broad range of skills and interests that are mental, physical, aesthetic, social and emotional.
Navzer Engineer, Cherie Percaccio and Michael Kilgard, researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas, have mentioned that brains of both animals and humans are "plastic" throughout one's lifetime. They commented that the plasticity, the capacity of the brain to change, is strongly influenced by environmental conditions. Their research showed that stimulating environments increase brain thickness, the number of neurons, and the number of connections between the neurons. They also found that when transferred back to a standard environment from the enriched (more stimulating) one, responses decreased by as much as 60% within a week of moving to the boring environment.
Dr. Beatriz Marique conducted a research in Venezuela, for a period of over sixteen years. The goal of her research was to analyze the relationship between stimulation and the development of in-uterus fetus, newborns and children up to the age of six. The research population included Venezuelan first time mothers with healthy pregnancies, and their children. In this research it was shown that from the very moment of birth, the babies who were enriched by a stimulating environment were more alert and turned their heads towards their parents. They recognized the music they heard in the womb. They were dynamic and relaxed, had initiative and were very curious. They had good hand-eye coordination, they laughed easily and were very social.
In other research, there is evidence that Omega-3 fats contribute to brain development in young children, and that when mothers have a diet rich in Omega-3 foods (cold water fish fish like Salmon, Trout and Sardines and Flax seed and nuts) while pregnant, the substance will be present in the baby's body. Also, mothers who have a diet rich in these food, will have more DHA in their breast milk, which contributes to healthy brain development. A good balanced diet that includes Omega-3 fatty acids has shown to support brain development in young children and to increase their intelligence.
