Are You Emotionally Intelligent? Find Out Your EQ

Are You Emotionally Intelligent? Find Out Your EQ | brain in charge | Scoop.it
Emotional quotient (EQ), a numerical measure of emotional intelligence or Emotional intelligence (EI) is the ability to recognize one's own and other people's emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior. There are three models of EI. The ability model, developed by Peter Salovey and John Mayer, focuses on the individual's ability to process emotional information and use it to navigate the social environment. The trait model as developed by Konstantin Vasily Petrides, "encompasses behavioral dispositions and self perceived abilities and is measured through self report". The final model, the mixed model is a combination of both ability and trait EI. It defines EI as an array of skills and characteristics that drive leadership performance, as proposed by Daniel Goleman.

Neuropsychology of Consciousness | Frontiers Research Topic

Neuropsychology of Consciousness | Frontiers Research Topic | brain in charge | Scoop.it
Neuropsychological conditions have been key to shaping our understanding of the neural basis of consciousness and the self, as well as a range of closely related psychological processes such as executive functions, memory, and language. For example, neglect and blindsight have been very important in revealing dissociations between conscious and non-conscious sensory processing and guiding theoretical work. Similarly, neuropsychological case studies have played a key role in defining concepts relating to subdivisions of memory and language functions.However, neuropsychological literature has not been without controversy. For example, the nature of conscious experience in blindsight has been the subject of debate, limiting progress in the field. In the same vein, there has been much debate regarding the conceptualization of neglect as a disorder of spatial attention. These theoretical debates are important as they guide the development of rehabilitation protocols. This Research Topic aims to generate discussion on the contribution of neuropsychological studies on understanding the neural basis of human cognition, as well as its rehabilitation. Where do we stand and what are the future directions? Does the neuropsychological approach still have mileage? Brief commentaries expressing authoritative views on these issues are welcome, as are lengthier reviews providing a long-term perspective on the status of the field. Submissions with empirical data, including replications an
