I don't believe that it is low,you just lack self confidence.However, you can try to improve it by talking to friends about history as well as present world events.You can also listen to educational programmes and any information that would keep you up to date with current world trends or happenings.The computer is a good source for research and learning.

Can you find out what it is that sets you off and makes you feel out of control? Is it people in your life or certain situations? What are things that make you feel calm and content? Maybe you're surrounding yourself with people that cause you to feel that way?

There is a site i think that you can check your Emotional Intelligence(EQ)bar. Do you agree that some food have some effect if it is taken excessively, maybe by checking your diet intake could hep you to calm down. I would also like to suggest you to write down what actually bothering you that your mind is dwelling it.

If you are still a student ask your guidance counselor if they have examinations for EQ in your school most school have a variety of test including personality, attitudes and coping skills. Try to take this exam and allow your counselor to advice you on the result of the test. If you are already at the working age and if the bouts of anger is really affecting your social life and working life I think it would best to find a therapist for your condition. Behavioral conditions are often hard to rectify specially with age but I think with the support of a professional the internal reason why these bouts of anger happen, may be realize and you may understand yourself better. Anger is but an expression that a situation is too overwhelming. EQ is more than just being easily angered. It is also how well you can interact with other persons in an emotional level.
