In the article, on the basis of an extensive analysis of the views of renowned scientists regarding emotions and thinking, conclusions are made about the essence, measurability and personal needs for emotional thinking. Among these conclusions are: 1. Emotional thinking can be measured through the EQ-i. But the difference between cognitive intellect, in which the highest levels are in the age of 17-18 years, after which its levels undergo minimal changes during the course of the whole active life of the individual and only in the elderliness it starts to decline; emotional EQ-i can change and increase in every age, depending on the acquired life experience. 2. The higher level of emotional thinking expands also the general level of intellect. 3. There is enough evidence to assume that it is possible to improve the level of emotional intelligence. 4. Emotional thinking is defined by the specific characteristics, which are needed in education and in work. Knowing and understanding its essence affects the level of learning the knowledge.
