Emotional Intelligence (EI)

Emotional intelligence (EI) can be described as the ability to identify, assess, and control the emotions of oneself and others. Research carried out by the Carnegie Institute of Technology showed that 85% of financial success is due to skills they label under “human engineering,” (which includes your personality, ability to communicate, negotiate, and lead), with only 15% of financial success being due to actual technical knowledge. The research also suggested that emotional intelligence alone has an impact on how successful people are in their careers, as reading emotional signals is an important part of building rapport and inter-personal communication. And what is one of the quickest and most effective ways of building emotional intelligence? The answer is to become proficient with reading micro expressions.
