13 THINGS EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT HUMANS TRY NOT TO DO!!!

download (1)

They don’t always assume that what they think and feel is a true reflection of what is really going on in someone’s mind or the real reason behind someone’s behavior. They realize that sometimes their assumptions about others may be flawed or inaccurate and further probing or experience may be necessary to discover the truth about a human.

They don’t think external influences directly control their emotions. They understand that their emotional state is their responsibility and under their control and don’t think the responsibility for the emotional state is an external influence or its control is exerted by external influences.

They don’t think that they can control and guarantee future happiness. They understand that what they think will make them happy in the future is a projection of what has made them happy in the past. If it is some future new projection or goal to be achieved then they realize that there is no guarantee that achieving it will really make them happy and that they won’t really know how happy until it actually happens.

They don’t think that being fearful is necessarily being on the wrong path because life is sometimes risky and repeated failure or new failure is always a possibility when trying something new. They risk doing new things despite a little fear which they feel might be a good thing and something they would like and perhaps even love.

They don’t think that sustained happiness is possible. They know that a sustained state of happiness is an illusion and they are not trying to reach that impossible delusional state but live day to day and enjoy whatever happiness comes with it.

They don’t easily change their views. They recognize that others sometimes try to change their thoughts, beliefs, and opinions but even though they have an open mind they are not gullible, are introspective, and don’t automatically reject the validity of their own viewpoints.

They don’t freely express all their emotions in public. Few but not all their intense emotions are expressed in public. Any intense anger or hatred are reserved to be more honestly, freely, and intimately expressed in a circle of trustworthy family and close friends.

They don’t think that any one emotion is permanent. They understand and are aware that shitty or very bad feelings are transient and eventually subside so they develop composure, control, or stamina which prevents the intense feelings from frequently being expressed in public.

They don’t confuse bad emotions or a bad day of emotional turmoil with a bad life in general and don’t become chronic complainers if they have more than their share of bad days or bad circumstances.

They don’t express empathy and sympathy all the time. They try to express empathy or sympathy where appropriate for humans suffering from bad circumstances or emotional turmoil but realize that some humans overly complain just to get attention so an expression of empathy or sympathy is not always forthcoming if not deserved.

They don’t overwhelm humans with fake exaggerated praise and compliments but express approval with sincere honest remarks and appropriate enthusiasm.

They don’t gullibly believe charismatic con artists manipulating emotions with information, goods, and services which sound too good to be true, especially get rich schemes and miracle cures.

They don’t believe emotional intelligence is inborn but believe it is something acquired with human experience. In general they assume a more mature or older human with much human interaction has more emotional intelligence than a young inexperienced adult with little social exposure.

THE TRUTH ABOUT COMPLIMENTS***

images (1)

Compliment: v. to mildly praise and usually approve

Complidiment: v. to mildly praise but disapprove

Most compliments are sincere but there are exceptions to the rule where you may be complimenting someone just to avoid hurt feelings and you really disapprove of the behavior or think that an appearance is ugly or not pleasant to look at. Great, wonderful, sensational, and awesome are not really polite, sincere, mild compliments but intense praise meant to make someone feel very happy whether they deserve to feel that way or not.

A proper compliment is approving of what someone thinks or does and praising them for it.

You can also deceptively compliment someone and disapprove of what they think or have done. This is a form of lying which some humans resort to when there is an authority figure whom they do not want to upset or challenge and so compliantly give an untrue compliment or a complidiment.

Language and many words promote lying and deception in society and it is time that we learned to discriminate between a true compliment and a deceptive one by inventing a new word for it or a complidiment.

WHAT TO COMPLIMENT HUMANS ON AND HOW TO DO IT RIGHT

20120124Compliments

We like to be complimented and frequently a “thank you” is all that is needed in return. You can compliment humans on appearance, good behavior, ability, ideas, opinions, beliefs, offspring, spouse, friends, and material possessions.

When complimenting be as honest and sincere as possible and don’t just use superlatives such as beautiful, great job, and I love it if you really feel that it is attractive, nice, a good job, like it, and OK but not extraordinarily great. Humans will appreciate an honest and sincere opinion and not an inflated one if they don’t deserve it. If you just use superlatives humans will feel that you are buttering them up and will not respect your opinions in the long duration.

Being honest and sincere with your offspring is just as important and if you say “great job” to everything your offspring do then they will never know or learn the difference between a good job or behavior and a great one. They will soon not want to please you with conscientious effort since your words will have lost truthful discriminating motivational value. They will feel that mom or dad is just a bullshit artist always lavishly praising them for everything that they do no matter how much effort they put into it and no matter what the outcome of the effort, good or bad.

Humans will respect your opinions more if your compliments are more accurate and may even occasionally include some negative remarks such as could be better, nice but not my favorite style, tasty but a little too salty or spicy,  or adequate but not enough quality for me.

Always try to give a reason or reasons why you don’t like something instead of just showing disapproval by saying its ugly, I hate it, I don’t like it, I don’t need it, or I don’t want it. If you have a reason for not liking something then your opinion will be more respected and humans will not get as offended as they will if you only express emotional revulsion or disapproval.

A good idea, opinion, or belief may not need a compliment but merely agreeing with the idea, opinion, or belief is sufficient praise if it is just acceptable but not outstanding.

Finally, if you do intensely dislike or hate something it is best to remain silent and not say anything at all if it is a stranger or a casual acquaintance who is not very important in your life. If it is your offspring, spouse, or close friend then remaining silent and trying to hide too many repulsive emotions may ruin a trustworthy relationship in the long duration. Emotional as well as factual honesty is the bond which keeps good relationships alive.
