So, the first two elements of emotional intelligence have to do with self mastery. And they are based this circuitry is the neuro platform. The first of these is self awareness, knowing what I'm feeling, knowing why I'm feeling it.

There was a study done by a man named Antonio Damasio, he's now at USC. Of he's an expert on this circuitry. And because he's an expert on the circuitry a very bright corporate lawyer, who unfortunately had a pre frontal brain tumor, which was operated on quite successfully in early but during surgery, they snipped the connection between the amygdala and the PFC.
