Change

Change is hard, or so they say.  I think most of us would say we’ve changed, but deep down when you get to the core, we really change very little over time.  Sigmund Freud proclaimed our personality to be set … Continue reading

Emotional Intelligence

I’ve spent the bulk of my career studying EQ. EQ is an acronym that stands for Emotional Quotient. The definition of this term is basically a person’s measure of emotional intelligence. If you look this up you’ll get various theories and perspectives. My personal theory is that emotional intelligence is a higher order of thinking, in which an individual cares about how their behavior influences the feelings of another person. Increased levels of emotional intelligence cause individuals to change or modify their behavior, to meet the emotional needs of another person. This differs from Theory of Mind (TOM) in which an individual can foresee the thoughts and intentions of another person, in that although they “see their mind,” using TOM skills, they may not change their behavior to meet the other persons needs, take perspective, or feeling empathy. Psychopathic minds often have increased levels of TOM in knowing the thoughts and intentions of another, but they lack emotional intelligence to change their behavior to meet the emotional needs of another person. Obviously this is my own unproven hypothesis, but I derive this from the many observations I’ve made of young children. Further more, I believe this is a skill that, if develops at all, is well developed by the age of 18 months. Stay tuned as my research progresses 🙂
