You Are Emotionally Intelligent If You Possess These Four Traits
At the mention of the word “intelligence,” the first thing that comes to mind is our mental aspect. Intelligence is usually viewed as academic success. To many people, being intelligent means excelling in academics. However, there is more to intelligence than our stock knowledge. It is unfortunate that people are not taught about emotional intelligence, especially considering that it is applicable in day-to-day lives.
If you are one of those people who struggle to keep their emotions at bay, we are here to help you control it. In this blog post, we will tell you the skills or traits you need to harness to boost your emotional intelligence.
Most emotionally intelligent people possess these skills:
They Know that Working With Other People Is a Strength, not a Weakness
People who struggle with their emotions prefer to keep a small circle of friends with whom they are comfortable. This brings a problem when they start working. As you know, one meets a lot of people at the workplace.
Emotionally intelligent people never see this as a sign of weakness. Rather, they see it as their strength and a new opportunity to make friends and form relationships with new people. In the future, these new people can help you in your future endeavors and may be there to support you in whatever you do.
They Can Take a Hit
If you struggle to deal your emotions, you will most likely be struggling with handling criticism in the future. Apparently, there are two types of criticism in life, namely positive and negative. Most of the time, human defense mechanism kicks in whenever someone or something questions one’s ability. This is handling criticism the negative way. However, emotionally intelligent people take criticism positively. Criticism provides an opportunity to improve oneself. Therefore, there is a need to learn how to filter and accept it. Filter the criticism that will help you to improve your skills and drop that which is destructive and will do you no good.
“There is no separation of mind and emotions; emotions, thinking, and learning are all linked.” — Eric Jensen
They are connected to themselves
Emotionally intelligent people dos not solely rely on others. They know what they arere doing and what their goals are, so they do everything in to achieve them. These people do not need the approval of others. They also do not need to please the mass by becoming someone they are not.
Emotionally intelligent persons choose to live their life the way they want whether other people approve of it or not. They have a strong conviction of themselves, and they are mostly secure of themselves. What matters most is that they are fulfilled and content with themselves.
They are Not Afraid to Fail
Most people are afraid to fail. Failure is shameful as it shows that one is not capable enough to achieve something. However, emotionally intelligent people often overcome their fear of failure to become the best versions of themselves. They are not afraid of failure and rejection. Instead, the rejection they receive only fuels them to keep going. Such people know that they can always do better the next time and when they finally achieve their success, they know that the failure was all worthwhile. it.
