EI (Emotional Intelligence) involves unselfishness acknowledgement in others. Emotion is an instinct, a reaction, “or intuitive feeling as distinguished from reasoning or knowledge” (Dictionary). Often associated with “mood, temperament, personality, disposition, and motivation” (Wikipedia).
It takes an effort to train ourselves to see emotions other people have. Even more effort to control our own. Anger for instance, my husband got mad at me over his potato salad. I pointed out the potatoes didn’t get done. It’s my fault for grinning; maybe even dangerous for pointing out an imperfection. Seriously, the incident could’ve started a civil war. That’s mental health at it’s lowest. Any comments?
