Passion (emotion)

Passion (from the Latin patior, meaning to suffer or to endure) is an emotion of feeling very strongly about a person. Passion is an intense emotion compelling feeling, enthusiasm, or desire for anything and often requiring action. Passion often applies to lively or eager interest in or admiration for a proposal, cause, or activity or love.


Passion can be expressed as a feeling of unusual excitement or enthusiasm about a subject, idea, person, or object. Passion quotient is used as part of Thomas Friedman's formula of CQ + PQ > IQ. Here the Curiosity quotient when added to the Passion quotient becomes greater than the Intelligence quotient.
