As I discussed about Emotional Intelligence in my previous post, now, I am going to talk about signs of Low and High EI.
People with low EQ often seem that their anger is uncontrollable, sometimes without any reason, they show frequent outbursts in personal and professional lives. At the workplace, they usually never accept any type of critique.
They tend to think quite contravening. They might get into the argument as they don’t understand other person’s feelings. If these people don’t want to do a particular work, they will make any logical or illogical excuse to eradicate all that.
Some of the signs of Low Emotional Intelligence
- Getting into lot of Arguments
- Doesn’t listen properly
- Unable to come out of their Emotions
- Not able to balance personal and professional life
- Insufficient decision power
- Shortage of Social Skills
- Lack of Communication Skills
- Blaming Others for Mistakes
Now, let’s talk about High Emotional Intelligence
First of all, these people are Self Aware. They know , which emotion is going through in their mind and body at a particular time. If they are angry, immediately , they ask themselves, “why am I angry ?” and according to it, they are able to regulate their emotions. They are highly optimistic and they motivate others for work.
Signs of High Emotional Intelligence
- Self Awareness
- Good Communication Skills
- Good Listening Skills
- Able to take decisions
In the conclusion, I would say Emotional Intelligence is inescapable in personal and professional life nowadays. You won’t be able to keep afloat if you are depriving of this.
