The longer I live the more I realize how few people are emotionally intelligent.
Emotionally driven, emotionally charged – most people. Emotionally intelligent – few and far between.
People think they’re emotionally intelligent, but when I’ve seen them during intense times, crucible moments and high emotion circumstances, they’re 100% emotionally responsive.
Next time you’re in a high-emotion situation, see if you can have full presence of what everyone might be thinking and feeling in the circumstance and communicate objectively.
