Emotional Intelligence has become a serious buzz word recently, I hear it in all walks of life, from everyday conversations over coffee to serious business discussions with a high ranking executive. But what do all these people mean exactly when they use this term, I am never quite sure. I myself use the term for the combination of three factors: 1, How well can I recognize and identify my own emotions? 2, How well can I recognize and identify the emotions of the people around me? 3, How can I manage all these to best serve my purpose and the quality of the connection between us?
There are many ways to develop this skill set. Here is a great test to discover for yourself how good you are at recognizing other people’s emotions, I found it quite fascinating and very good for raising awareness. I hope you will too, while learning something really important about yourself.
