How you react to an unexpected situation shows how emotionally resilient you are. According to experts, if you have high emotional quotient or emotional resilience you are able to cope with certain situations better. 

Let us explain with an example: What will you do when your friend comes and bitches about a group mate. Chances are  either you’ll tag along and rant yourself, or simply hear her side of the story. Whatever you do shows how emotionally equipped you are.
