#1. Self-Aware . . .
aren’t arrogant or over-confident, but they know their strengths and weaknesses and will use them to get what they want. Often, they will search out Career or Life paths that best suit their personal strengths, which allows them to really thrive & achieve to get their fulfillment.
#2. Manage their Emotions.
Due to their exceptional understanding of emotions and their level of self-awareness, High EQ’s are proficient at controlling their emotions. An example is that in a stressful situation, they are able to remain calm (or at least appear to). They effectively re-direct the stress, anger, or frustration they may be feeling at the time, to productive activity, aiming their focus at situations & events rather than people. They are the least likely person to snap and yell at you in a moment of panic.
This is the factor that most people think of when they hear the term EI – and for good reason. People with high EI levels are excellent at reading their own and others’ emotions. They use this to their advantage in forming relationships as well as getting a sense of respect and understanding among peers.
They see the good in just about everything, and this (+) outlook on life is due to their ability to find something in their life each day that they are grateful for. It might be small, but it is something good.
#5. Not afraid of change . . .
because they understand it is a normal part of life. Instead of clinging to old ways, they adapt to their new environment. They allow themselves to learn and grow.
#6. Don’t dwell on the Past . . .
because they are too excited about the possibilities ahead. Whilst these possibilities can sometimes overwhelm them or bring anxiety, they are generally more excited than fearful by the options & opportunities ahead.
#7. Hard to Offend.
This is probably their best characteristic. They are some of the most “easy-going” people you will meet. You can’t easily offend them because they have a firm grasp on who they are. For this reason, they are unlikely to be swayed by someone else’s opinion – if it contradicts their sense of self-worth. They know who they are and they don’t care about other opinions – unless they are beneficial.
#8. Creative Thinkers.
While someone with high EI might not necessarily work in a particularly creative field, they will often have a creative outlook or be an “out-of-the-box thinker”. This is linked back to their overall awareness of others’ emotions and their never-ending curiosity for life and the people in it. This allows them to see all of the other possible solutions available. In turn, this makes them highly successful in most any situation.
Studies have shown that more and more people with High EQ’s are the go-getter type, often demonstrating themselves as high achievers. This can be linked to the emotional gratification that they feel when finishing a job well, combined with the boost of joy provided by others’ recognition.
#10. Always Learning
They have a natural curiosity and a thirst for knowledge to better understand things or get to know new things. They now only cover their own field by explore other fields that interest them.
#11. Not Perfectionists.
They understand that nothing in life is perfect, so they tend to take on whatever life throws their way and make the best of it. they also realize that Perfectionism is not worth the extra effort. Poor ROI – Return on Investment.
They have a higher understanding of Emotions – theirs & others. They demonstrate a “balanced” work/life, because they know how to set Priorities of what is the most important – to achieve that balance.
This includes: having a healthy Diet, (lean protein, veggies & fruits), getting plenty of Sleep that their body wants & needs and Exercising regularly to keep the physical body at it’s peak operating condition – which also causes more blood flow to the brain and keep it in peak operation performance.
#14. Not easily Distracted.
Despite being highly receptive to other’s emotions, highly EQ’s [Emotional Quotients] are able to separate themselves from thoughts or things of distraction to focus on the task of priority.
#15. Set Boundaries – saying NO.
This may seem contradictory to the nature of High EQ’s – as they tend to be people-pleasers, but they know how to say no to people and still be polite. They can justify saying “no” as it keeps them from getting overwhelmed by commitments. This protects those with high EI from burning out, and therefore allows them to be able to help others as much as they want to.
Overall, Emotionally Intelligent people are some the kindest, most easy-going, respectful, and under-standing people you will meet. While some people naturally have this positive outlook on life, you can acquire these skills & traits. By slowing down a bit every day to stop and think about how your actions are impacting others, you can raise your EI by being more empathetic & understanding. It only takes a second to be kind, and the benefits far outweigh the cost. Good ROI.
