Emotional Intelligence and the Lack Thereof

When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion. -Dale Carnegie

The Beauty of emotions

We are going to talk about a topic that needs a good discussion. This topic is ruining a lot of friendships and relations ships. And nothing will change unless awareness is brought to it.

We need to talk about the lack of emotional intelligence in a lot of people of this generation. I will not directly gang up on men. Because I have seen women lack in this character trait as well.



The 5 components according to Mindtools.com

According to Daniel Goleman , an American psychologist who helped to popularize emotional intelligence, there are five key elements to it:

  • Self-awareness.
  • Self-regulation.
  • Motivation.
  • Empathy.
  • Social skills.

Let’s Talk about it

Now that you get a sense of what it is, I wanted to reiterate how many lack it.

I’ve met people who cannot properly communicate and solve problems because they fail to work on this trait. I have let go of friends because they couldn’t ever show empathy.

Anyone can be angry–that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way–that is not easy. -Aristotle


The trouble with emotions is…


This is a personal opinion, but I sort of hate how social media and technology have ruined communication a little. People do not put much effort which leads to misunderstandings.

It is very important to understand that emotional intelligence is not the opposite of intelligence, it is not the triumph of heart over head–it is the unique intersection of both. -David Caruso
