Emotional Intelligence!


Emotional Intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others. 

It is generally said to include three skills: 
  1. emotional awareness; 
  2. the ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; and 
  3. the ability to manage emotions, which includes regulating your own emotions and cheering up or calming down other people.

What Is Emotional Intelligence?

Our emotions largely relate with  our personalities and needs.  Emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize our emotions,   and realize how your emotions affect people around you. It also involves your perception of others: when you understand how they feel, this allows you to manage relationships more effectively.
The concept of emotional intelligence has been around since 1990, when Yale psychologists John D. Mayer and Peter Salovey presented the concept to the academic world. 
1. They’re change agents.
People with high EI aren’t afraid of change. They understand that it’s a necessary part of life—and they adapt.
2. They’re self-aware.
They know what they’re good at and what they still have to learn—weaknesses don’t hold them back. They know what environments are optimal for their work style.
3. They’re empathetic.
The hallmark of EI, being able to to understand what co-workers or clients are going through.
4. They’re not perfectionists.
While extremely motivated, people with EI know that perfection is impossible. They roll with the punches and learn from mistakes. 
5. They’re balanced.
Their self-awareness means that they naturally know the importance of and how to maintain a healthy professional-personal balance in their lives. T
6. They’re curious.
An inborn sense of wonder and curiosity makes them delightful to be around. They don’t judge; they explore the possibilities. They ask questions and are open to new solutions.
7. They’re gracious.
People with high EI know every day brings something to be thankful for—and they don’t see the world as “glass half-empty” as a lot of people do. They feel good about their lives and don’t let critics or toxic people affect that.
