    For many years, most people thought that a person’s Intelligence Quotient (IQ) determines how he or she succeeded in life. In the last ten years, researchers have found that IQ is not the only predicator of a person’s success in life. They are now looking at Emotional Quotient (EQ) as another determinant of a person’s success. It becomes a popular concept in the field of educational psychology. Children nowadays often develop negative feelings about themselves. Then, they develop habitual ways of acting on these feelings that are adaptive in their current situations but ineffective and unproductive in the world at large. They need a strategy to develop their EQ in order they can construct new feeling and ways to deal with their feelings. And the strategy is called self-activation strategy. The object of this study is Tim Burton’s film entitled Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; a 2005 fantasy film released by Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Road show Pictures. This study emphasized on three main problems; they are: (1) What are the characteristic of self-activation described in the film? (2) What are the skill types of Emotional Quotient described in the film? (3) How does self-activation strategy develop Children’s EQ? The objectives of this study are to explain about selfactivation characteristics and EQ skill types, and also to analyze how this strategy develops children’s EQ. The method applied in this final project is qualitative descriptive. The sources of the data are the script and the video. The procedures of colleting data include watching the film, identifying, inventorying, classifying, and reporting it. The techniques of analyzing are by exposing, interpreting, and summarizing. From the analysis, it can be concluded that there are eleven characteristics of self-activation; they are giving motivation to create self-motivation, keeping control of temporary pleasure of desire, generating diligence and consistency, generating ability to know self-strength and weakness, generating ability to apply theories and ideas into action, generating ability to see long and short-term perspective, taking initiative, emerging bravery to face failure, emerging selfconfidence in achieving goal, creating independence, and maintaining focus on achieving the highest goal. Furthermore, there are five skill types of emotional quotient; they are self-awareness, motivation, managing emotion, empathy, and social skills. Self-activation strategy focuses on forming habitual pattern of children in doing their activities focused on their self-potential, self competence, and increasing their willingness to do positives activities. This strategy will develop their EQ and helps them to achieve their goals in life.
