Emotional intelligence is a very recently described intelligence form. This concept exists since 80th years of the twentieth century. In summary, emotional intelligence is the ability to sense, understand, and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions as a source of human energy, information, connection and influence. The following skills belong to the highly developed emotional intelligence: independence from your own feelings and ability to adjust yourself to them, ability to recognize, name and direct your feelings, discern the nuances of feelings and use them in positive way, and, as a consummation, derive actions from it. Emotional intelligence accompanies our daily life and in many cases as important as the common intelligence, especially in our modern society.

Just a random fun quiz...something fun to think about when you're toiling away at work or school and the boredom is slowly but surely taking away just a little of your will to live. Everyone has an element they're most like.
And guess what? There is so much more to each of us than our element! You probably have actual superpowers you didn't even think were that - like compassion, being a great listener, always helping, making people laugh, etc.:-)

Emotional intelligence is not merely about controlling emotional responses for one's own benefit an; that of others. It is also about using emotion where suitable. Emotion is, after all, at the heart of that sincerity which reassures, persuades and affords confidence; emotion triggers flight or fight, sometime-appropriately; emotion is necessary if we are to cope, for example, with bereavement; emotion can lie at the source of our greatest joys. The emotionally intelligent are like parents to their emotions, acknowledging their needs, loving them, indulging them where appropriate, encouraging their creativity yet restraining them from foolish, destructive or discourteous behaviour. To extend the metaphor, the emotionally intelligent are neither of the school which believes that emotions should be repressed - "seen but not heard," nor of that which would allow the little darlings to "express themselves freely to the discomfort or dismay of others. Emotional literacy with regard to others can only be learner by reference to the ABC of one's own emotions. If, therefore, you are not at ease with your own emotions, you will find it hard to relate to others and to respond appropriately to them.
