The direct and indirect presence of emotions can be seen in reasoning and rationality. Ignorance of emotions, their lack of management and carelessness in expressing them can have huge costs for human beings. New research shows that lack of emotional intelligence can have devastating effects on individual and social contexts, and conversely, education and reinforcement can pave the way for great success. Emotional intelligence training can provide a good platform for individual and social development in various fields of culture. According to some experts, emotional intelligence is very important in normal life. It seems reasonable to assume that some people cannot cope well with their emotions, do not have good interpersonal relationships, have less mental health and experience less job success. The field of emotional intelligence emerged as a subject of study from the heart of scientific psychology, so educators, psychiatrists, human resources specialists and others became interested in this subject and thus, this field was developed. From the time that reputable scientific journals published articles in this field until today, journals and research articles report activities related to this field.
