What Is Emotional Intelligence? - ETCSINES


The word Emotional Intelligence has two words combined together to form one “Emotional” and “intelligence”. In order to understand the in depth of this word, we will take them one after the other.

EMOTION: It is a person’s state of being and involuntary physiological response to an object or a situation, based on or tied to physical state and sensory data. 

INTELLIGENCE: It is the capacity of the mind, especially to understand principles, truths, facts or meanings, to acquire knowledge and apply it to practice. it’s also the ability to learn and comprehend.

Now having known the meaning of this two words, so WHAT IS EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE.

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE is the capacity of individuals to recognize their own emotions and those of others, discern between different feelings and label them appropriately, use emotional information to guide thinking and behaviour, and manage or adjust emotions to adapt to environments or achieve one’s goal. 

Now emotional Intelligence have four (4) traits that affect the life of humans;

Self-Awareness: This is when you know what creates an emotional response for you. You understand your “gut” feelings, what triggers your emotions, and where your emotions intersect with your thoughts and behaviour.

Self-Management: You know what to do to control your emotions to guide and redirect your behaviour.

Empathy: you understand the emotions of others by your own experience with 1 and 2 persons. You can infer how others might be feeling in a variety of contexts.

Ability to build relationships: you understand how to help others manage their emotions, and how to use your own emotional awareness to navigate, build, and maintain positive relationships.

Now that we have seen a brief introduction on what Emotional intelligence is all about, I am sure we are ready to see what this week has for us. Stay tuned as the ETCSINES group brings us interesting and intelligent write-up based on Emotional intelligence.
