In brief: Intelligent, emotion

Iq, or intelligence quotient, is a measure of how quickly and accurately a person processes complex information and cognitive tasks.
Eq, or emotional iq, is a term to describe how sensitive someone is to the feelings and reactions of other people that they are interacting with. There is no correlation between the two: someone can be book-smart but insensitive, or not very bright, but compassionate.
