Low Emotional Intelligence

But what does having low emotional intelligence imply? Does having it mean disaster?

To set a bit of groundwork, let’s use the definition of emotional intelligence by John Mayer and Peter Salovey—two people who have made a significant contribution on the subject:

Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive emotions, to access and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge, and to reflectively regulate emotions so as to promote emotional and intellectual growth

You criticize others on every chance you get.


You just lose it—almost every time.


You can’t lead, or work in, a team.


You’re not mindful of others’ feelings.


Blaming others comes naturally.


You’re afraid to try anything new.


You let all kinds of negativity get you.


You can’t read people’s facial expressions.


When adversities come, you give up.


You’re bitter.


You keep on arguing—even when there’s no point already.


You look for motivation in the wrong places.


Think About It

There are different takes on emotional intelligence. If you ask me, people could be subjective on the topic. Some say emotional intelligence is overrated. Some say it depends on one’s social class.
