I am seeking to understand emotional intelligence - how do those who are more emotionally intelligent see things differently?
I like this
definition of emotional intelligence as consisting of four attributes:
– You recognize your own emotions and how they affect your thoughts and behavior, know your strengths and weaknesses, and have self-confidence.
– You’re able to control impulsive feelings and behaviors, manage your emotions in healthy ways, take initiative, follow through on commitments, and adapt to changing circumstances.
– You can understand the emotions, needs, and concerns of other people, pick up on emotional cues, feel comfortable socially, and recognize the power dynamics in a group or organization.
– You know how to develop and maintain good relationships, communicate clearly, inspire and influence others, work well in a team, and manage conflict.
For those of you who are good at this, can you try to explain how these processes happen for you? I'm particularly bad with identifying and understanding my own emotions, but I'd like to hear about all of them.
