Summary of Emotional Intelligence 2.0
Are you in charge of your emotions or are they in charge of you? Most people are slaves—or at least servants—to their emotions, and that doesn’t necessarily mean the emotions are always big and overpowering. People who show no emotion are still not in charge of the part of themselves; they are prisoners. Being able to identify and control emotions, and understanding the emotions of others, are all signs of an emotionally intelligent person.
IQ when it comes to predicting success in a career and in relationships. Someone with high EQ (the abbreviation we will use for emotional intelligence technically stands for “emotional-intelligence quotient) is more likely to be healthy and happy than someone who is puzzled by their own emotions and those of others. This book will go over why this is, and if improving your EQ is even possible. Using specific tips, you can learn how to increase your emotional intelligence in the workplace and in your relationships. There’s a dark side to EQ, as well, and that will be explored in detail in these chapters.
Emotions are like horses. When they are wild, they are dangerous and can lead you right off a cliff, but when they are tamed, they can carry you to great things and satisfaction in life. Social work situations will be easier to navigate, your relationships will be closer and less confusing, and your state of mind will be more peaceful. The goal of this book is to give you insight into how the emotional brain works and how to grip the reins. When you are the leader and not the follower of your emotions, you’ll be amazed at the changes in your life.
