Emotional Intelligence Terms and Concepts

In order to learn and improve our emotional intelligence we need to understand the terminology. When we understand the terminology we remove internal confusion and gain power by naming the situation or event that triggers a certain emotional response. From there we have more control over our reactions and emotional regulation. It goes a little something like this:

  • Once we know the concepts and terms regarding emotional intelligence we are better able to define our experiences.

  • When we are able to clearly define our experiences we increase our emotional awareness.

  • With increased emotional awareness we increase our ability to regulate and utilize emotions..

To learn the terminology head over to the EQnow Glossary of Emotional Intelligent Terms or use the alphabetical term search below:
