Emotional Intelligence General description
When it comes to happiness or sadness in your life the emotional skills matter a lot. These skills are helping you to achieve career and personal goals, build strong relationships, and do well at your job.
The emotional intelligence (EQ) is an ability to recognize, understand, use and control emotions, manage stress, overcome difficulties, cooperate and emphasize with others and avoid conflicts. EQ is affecting different spheres of life and yourself in general. If your emotional skills are developed enough you can identify and estimate yours and others emotions it will help you to be more integrated with a society.
There are three components which will lead your emotional capacities to the right direction:
- self-awareness – ability to recognize own emotions, aware how they influence on you, know your weakness and strengths, feel self-confident
- social awareness – understanding and realizing the emotions, needs of others, feel comfortable included in a society
- self-management – capacity to manage spontaneous feelings, thoughts, control impulsiveness, handle your emotions
- relationship management – experience and skills about creating the relationships with other through an emotional level, teambuilding, impacting on others, managing conflicts.
So if you are able to name the emotion you feel and understand how it affects you or others, that’s really big step to your internal balance. But after recognizing the emotion, you will need to accept it, just to realize that all that we are able to feel is normal processes and there is no reason to push yourself act differently. The better choice is to learn how to manage these feelings in a way that you can understand yourself and social environment.
