Default Emotional Intelligence

This Is How To Increase Emotional Intelligence: 5 Powerful Secrets - Barking Up The Wrong Tree

Starting with a cartoon of someone saying "Yes, I think I have good people skills. What kind of idiot question is that?"

The "secrets":
  1. Self-Awareness
  2. Self-Regulation
  3. Motivation
  4. Empathy
  5. Social Skill

One needs self-awareness for evaluating oneself. Otherwise, one will not get anywhere.

Self-regulation means keeping oneself from acting on impulses that may be troublesome.

Motivation means having an intrinsic desire to do things.

For empathy, it is possible to have too much of it as well as too little of it. There are three types:
  • Emotional empathy: “You feel awful? Then I feel awful too!”
  • Cognitive empathy: “I understand that you are feeling awful. That must suck.”
  • Compassion: “You feel awful? I feel for you. How can I help?”
Finally, "Social skills means the ability to build rapport and manage relationships — with a goal in mind."

This is a part of multiple-intelligence theory, the theory that we have different sorts of capabilities where some may be developed more than others.
