Abstract: Emotional Intelligence is an important factor that enhances people’s life accomplishments and work. Buddhism embraces a similar concept of emotional intelligence and the psychological perspectives are that emotional intelligence can be developed, and such a person will be the more mentally complete in terms of intelligence, knowledge and ethics, be morally upright and able to live happily together with others. However, there are differences in terms of profoundness. That is, in Buddhism, the intellect oversees the emotion in almost all moral matters, and does not only emphasize, it also suggests the use of intelligence and wisdom in managing emotion diligently and strongly. Whereas, the psychological view is that emotional intelligence represents personal power encouraging the different abilities such as the information perception ability, trustworthiness and creativity. These all influence living. The emotion stimulates our body to use the intellect for the highest benefit; having reasonable thoughts, adjusting to the environment and expressing our needs, including being accepted by other people. Therefore, Buddhism and psychology both have a body of knowledge that benefits and develops the human emotional intelligence in all its dimensions and potential. This article, thus, aims at presenting the combination of Buddhism and psychology to develop and enhance emotional intelligence, which is human capital according to the sufficiency principle and has a depth of immunity against change and the effect of globalization, leading to a happy society.
