What Is Emotional Intelligence?


Dr. Daniel Goleman




Emotional intelligence is a range of abilities, self-awareness, emotional self-management, empathy, social skills.


Emotional Intelligence refers to how well we handle ourselves and our relationships, their four domains, self awareness, knowing what we're feeling, why we're feeling it, which is a basis of, for example, good intuition, good decision making.

Also, it's a moral compass.

The second part is self management, which means handling your distressing motions in effective ways so that they don't cripple you, they don't get in the way of what you're doing and yet, a tuning them to them when you need to, so that you learn what you must. Every emotion has a function, also marshaling positive emotions, getting ourselves, you know, involved, enthused about what we're doing, aligning our actions with our passions.
