“I’m not emotionally intelligent AT ALL!”

I’ve had so many people say this to me. Which is sad because this declaration really doesn’t make much sense. Contrary to popular belief emotional intelligence (EI) is not a blob of generic people skills that warm and fluffy people have and cold, hard people lack.According to Daniel Goleman, author, psychologist, and science journalist, emotional intelligence is comprised of a set of five competencies.

  • Self-awareness
  • Self motivation
  • Self-regulation
  • Empathy
  • Social skills

All of us will have some strengths within the five competencies and some weaknesses. So very, very few of us can claim to be completely lacking in emotional intelligence!

Sad that there is little to no organized knowledge about educating people or people educating themselves about these aspects.

There really should be.
