All of us have our ups and downs. However, the manner to cope with a difficult situation or a challenge defines our emotional maturity, as well as our emotional intelligence level.
However, first, let us consider what the emotional intelligence stands for. According to scientists, it is the ability of each individual to control their emotions, as well as to get through the tension in the most difficult situations and challenges. It not only helps us not to lose our faces, but also regulates vital bodily functions: it helps link the grey matter of our brains, affecting the abilities of critical thinking.
What are the main behavioural indicators of emotionally intelligent people?
Emotionally intelligent people are motivated towards what they are doing. They do not need to be asked to do their job or to fulfil their obligations. They have an impulse for self-determination.
As the name of the phenomenon suggests, emotionally stable and intelligent people care about what they fell, as well as what other people fell towards different things, they care about the feelings and emotions of other people around them, as well as they are not afraid to reveal their feelings and emotions to others. Empathy is considered to be one of the factors that differentiate emotionally stable and emotionally intelligent people.
Emotionally intelligent individuals naturally find a mutual language with a great variety of people. They understand that people are different and do not doubt the perception and the point of view of others. They just accept and consider them.
Ability to Regulate and Control Their Feelings and Emotions
People, who are emotionally intelligent, are always able to control their emotions and to regulate them. They think before they do something, they know that their behaviour might have the effects on others and fully realize that.
Ability to Determine the Causes of Emotions
Emotionally intelligent individuals can easily determine the causes of their emotions, whether it is sudden anger, or joy, or any other. They are able to trace where their emotions arise from and to identify the real source. Very often, when people understand the source, they do not anymore have troubles with the control of their emotions.
Recent studies prove that the level of emotional intelligence can determine our choices in life, as well as our ethical and moral well-being. Emotionally stable and intelligent individuals make better choices and build up the strategies that are able to bring their lives and well-being to a new level.
