I am not more gifted, I’m not smarter; I’m not more intelligent than the average person in this room, and I have lots of things to prove that with. What I know that is different from what people know or don’t know is that I understand the way the world works.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) is the ability to understand how the world and people work. It is the ability to elicit a positive response from people despite their negative situation. And I think that is something every Christian should have.
This is an excerpt of a lecture delivered by Dr. Frenzo Adeniyi Onamusi to young doctors in Ogun State in 2013.
