Emotional Intelligence theories - Daniel Goleman's EQ concepts

Emotional Intelligence theories - Daniel Goleman's EQ concepts | Mental Health Wellbeing | Scoop.it

With emotional intelligence you would have a tool to have success and to be happy in life. If you don't have read the book from Daniel Goleman, maybe you should. [note mg]

 

emotional intelligence theory (EQ - Emotional Quotient)

 

Emotional Intelligence - EQ - is a relatively recent behavioural model, rising to prominence with Daniel Goleman's 1995 Book called 'Emotional Intelligence'. The early Emotional Intelligence theory was originally developed during the 1970s and 80s by the work and writings of psychologists Howard Gardner (Harvard), Peter Salovey (Yale) and John 'Jack' Mayer (New Hampshire).

 

Emotional Intelligence is increasingly relevant to organizational development and developing people, because the EQ principles provide a new way to understand and assess people's behaviours, management styles, attitudes, interpersonal skills, and potential. Emotional Intelligence is an important consideration in human resources planning, job profiling, recruitment interviewing and selection, management development, customer relations and customer service, and more.

 

Emotional Intelligence links strongly with concepts of love and spirituality: bringing compassion and humanity to work, and also to 'Multiple Intelligence' theory which illustrates and measures the range of capabilities people possess, and the fact that everybody has a value.

 

The EQ concept argues that IQ, or conventional intelligence, is too narrow; that there are wider areas of Emotional Intelligence that dictate and enable how successful we are. Success requires more than IQ (Intelligence Quotient), which has tended to be the traditional measure of intelligence, ignoring essential behavioural and character elements. We've all met people who are academically brilliant and yet are socially and inter-personally inept. And we know that despite possessing a high IQ rating, success does not automatically follow.

How sugar affects the brain - Nicole Avena

How sugar affects the brain - Nicole Avena | Mental Health Wellbeing | Scoop.it
When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and
your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system
is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol
or nicotine -- an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves
you craving more. Nicole Avena explains why sweets and treats should be
enjoyed in moderation.

Your memory is no video camera: It edits the past with present experiences

Your memory is no video camera: It edits the past with present experiences | Mental Health Wellbeing | Scoop.it
Your memory is a wily time traveler, plucking fragments of the present and inserting them into the past, reports a new study. In terms of accuracy, it's no video camera. Rather, memory rewrites the past with current information, updating your recollections with new experiences to aid survival. Love at first sight, for example, is more likely a trick of your memory than a Hollywood-worthy moment.

Ian Banyard's curator insight, May 15, 2013 1:43 AM

This £5m study aims to identify changes to the brain's wiring that controls impulsive and emotional behaviour as young people mature and will no doubt show the differences between successful teenage brains and dysfunctional brains. I wonder if our current focus on academic development will prove to be constructive or destructive on teenage brain development.
