Emotional Intelligence - Views Of Daniel Goleman On Its Effect On Us!

Jan 24, 2008
Emotional intelligence constitutes one particular side of your personality. It revolves around you being yourself. Specialist concur that with the exception of your intellectual quotient, how well you do in the future is considerably determined by emotional quotient. It is true that we arrive at our conclusions by means of our intellect. This is precisely what we avail of in cranial analysis as well as for retaining information critical to generating the answers with regard to the circumstances that we confront.

Since a long time, a vast majority believed that IQ was the sole factor, which tends to give us directions in life.

At one time, people did not take into account that emotions played a major role in giving rise to vital decisions. In addition, they have looked upon emotions as a nuisance that prevents us from enjoying life to the fullest. Emotions were often deemed as irritants that hindered right thinking.

But, the passage of time necessitated that we modify our opinions and persons were born to pass on our perspective. One such person is the precursor of emotional intelligence, Daniel Goleman, a psychologist and writer.

We are continuously carrying on a conversation with the person seated close by. During this process of interface, a whole host of skills is required to ascertain if it is effective or unfavorable to the concerned person. We require thorough analysis, social skills, abilities to express ourselves in a proper manner as well as the capability to direct things into fruitful means of interface. Apart from these, there are many other critical facets of living, which we need to discover.

Any setbacks with regard to any of these will tend to bring about what is termed the domino effect regarding the way in which we carry on our lives and also in developing friendly relations with not only ourselves but also with the persons whom we know on a personal level.

Emotional intelligence covers all of the above.
People with elevated levels of emotional intelligence tend to be prominent even if they are facing a challenge from persons whose IQs are equally high. It is not a bad sign to be considered intelligent. It is simply that where everything is concerned, we need to strike a balance and agreement.

Since a long time, the sole deciding factor of contended living is the capability to think properly. However, due to studies Daniel Goleman developed as well as the book on Emotional Intelligence, people's opinions on right living underwent a drastic transformation.

Both Daniel Goleman as well as his book titled Emotional Intelligence rerouted our single-mindedness from a higher IQ to that of a higher EQ. Specialists have today recognized that individuals who carry out their tasks effectively are not just those considered book smarts. Actually, there are several scenarios when those that are street smart plus emotionally intelligent persons garner the fruits of success.

Now, we can ascertain emotionally intelligent persons by means of their exhibition of different behaviors that separate them from persons with higher IQ but unstable emotions.

There are many people blessed with the aptitude to persist, empathize, and restrain themselves. Then there are persons capable of resolving issues by employing their finest decisions as well as those capable of connecting with people. In addition, there are people who can restrain their inclinations and those capable of maintaining relationships. They come in several faces and every one of them has traits vastly dissimilar from each other.

Now, all these aptitudes are derived from their abilities to be conscious of their very own feelings as well as the sentiment expressed by others. They perfectly understand how and why they respond in the manner, they do. Perhaps, they have a higher level of social intelligence and intrapersonal intelligence, which are useful in arriving at decisions and knowledge of themselves as well as the people with whom they are interfacing.

While there is no possibility that everyone is blessed with greater IQs, all males have equal prospects of developing emotional intelligence because this constitutes an extremely dynamic facet of personality.
