What is emotional intelligence, anyway? We know it's not the same thing as book smarts; you can memorize the complete works of Homer and still not grasp that the moody-looking guy sitting next to you just doesn't want to hear you recite epic verse all day. Yes, there are different kinds of intelligence, but having a high emotional IQ (known as EQ) is particularly important when you enter the workplace.

But how do you know if you're an emotional genius (hint: if you call yourself an "emotional genius," you probably aren't one) or a total dunce? Don't worry: It's AOL Jobs Week and we're here to help with a handy quiz that will gauge your emotional intelligence and leave you better informed about this slippery, hard-to-define topic.

Would like to have sent this stupid quiz to a friend. Quiz is stupid, but the NEXT quiz, a clikable link inside this stupid quiz, is very revealing. A thing about reading facial expressions. However, cannot, because the email share isn't working correctly.

Stupid test. Doesn't allow for realistic situations. By the last day a project is due, I already have it done early.

My thoughts exactly. I grab a coffee and chat with the receptionist because I'm finished, not because I'm an underachiever.
