Are You Emotionally Intelligent? 9 Signs Of High Emotional Intelligence
Emotional intelligence was first introduced to the public in 1964 by Michael Beldoch. It refers to the capacity of an individual to recognize not only their emotions, that of others as well.
An emotionally intelligent person can label and prioritize the variations in their feelings. Below we've taken common traits of people with high emotional intelligence.
You Let Go Of The Past
We can't change what has already happened. You strive to keep in mind the limitations of your influence. You focus on the now, hoping for a better tomorrow. In a similar vein, you try to not expect too much of any venture or person.
You Know How And When To Say No
This is a critically important skill. We have to feel empowered to successfully reject any formations and people not healthy or conducive for success and happiness. It takes more than strength of will to say no. Employing tact helps make your decisions stick. You do your best to be clear in your words and actions, taking the time to explain yourself. You don't even accept the bull you try to hand yourself.
Acknowledge Your Strengths And Weaknesses
You are hyper aware of yourself. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. You are humble about your strengths and you don't shy away from your weaknesses. If you aren't aware of the details of your personality, you will over extend yourself and set yourself up for failure.
You're A Good Judge Of Character
Your awareness and savvy nature sharpen your awareness of yourself which translates to easily seeing the qualities and details of other's intentions and personality. When others try to conceal inner formations and project themselves, you are aware of the lack of genuine contact. While you may not always be able to see what they are covering up, you are at least cognizant of its falsehood.
