Emotional intelligence: n. the ability to accurately assess a human’s emotional circumstance and to proceed to communicate appropriately and/or to motivate samer human to achieve a goal(s)

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is the ability to impulsively control your impulsive desires to express intense anger, fear, hatred, jealousy, frustration and not offend or greatly threaten the human whom you are communicating with and not stimulate them into defensive intense emotional reactions. It is the ability to communicate these “negative” emotions where appropriate in a calm controlled way.  

EQ is also the ability to confidently communicate loving, caring, empathetic, praising, or inspiring emotions which motivate a human to do their best at achieving a goal(s).

Emotional intelligence can be used to do good and/or bad things and to some extent it is also the ability to manipulate other humans to achieve desired goal(s). That is why managers with high emotional intelligence are sought after in business and institutional enterprises.

Sociopaths are sometimes also good at manipulating gullible humans and they could also be said to have a high degree of EQ but they lack integrity so they are severely handicapped socially and they are usually never admired and respected by others with integrity.

Propagandists, dictators like Hitler, and politicians in general have high EQ and the more unscrupulous kind name call or stereotype and associate ideas and humans with angry, fearful, and hateful reactions motivating humans into action with these “negative” emotions. They optimize human motivation with both “positive” and “negative” emotions and are still idolized by brainwashed devoted followers. Hitler was an evil genius with a high EQ who motivated vast populations into obedient behaviors with anger, fear, hatred, pride, and love of the “fatherland”. He optimized the motivation in his Aryan hoards totally devoted to the conquest of the world.

Parents with high emotional intelligence usually have offspring with high emotional intelligence because it is learned from parental role models and personal experience with other good role models. Emotional intelligence can be acquired through extensive interactions and experience with a variety of humans throughout a lifetime and those who mostly learn from personal human experience and not much from parents or school role models are usually mature experienced middle aged and older humans who only acquire EQ late in life.

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.

Many intelligent humans are also smart but some are not and there are humans who are smart and not very intelligent. When you read this blog then hopefully you will know what the difference between intelligence and smarts is.

There is no mathematical formula which can predict intelligent behavior and even an IQ score on tests only determines how good you are at analyzing and understanding the written content and your ability to manipulate numbers and mathematical concepts. IQ is highly dependent on how good a memory you have and the quantity and quality of the information which you have learned.

Even high IQ humans can do some very stupid things and may have very little logical ability.They may be handicapped when it comes to managing humans or dealing with them successfully on an emotional level called emotional intelligence EQ. Most humans are highly emotional creatures who seldom think things through logically and don’t make many smart logical decisions but rather make many emotionally biased choices in life. EQ is frequently much more important in life than IQ if you have to interact much with humans.

Further you can be very intelligent in a field of expertise or profession such as medicine but be very bad in household repairs and not be handy with tools at all so one can say that you are only intelligent mostly in your field of expertise. 

In human relationships due to an over inflated ego or excessive pride you may act foolishly or inappropriately with humans on many levels and not be considered very intelligent by them.

In the real world who you know is sometimes more important than what you know and a smart human will know the difference and adjust accordingly.

The quality of the information which you have learned is more important than a quantity of information much of which may be trivial in nature or over specialized and practically useless when you try to achieve goals in life.

It is commonly said that someone may have book smarts but not practical smarts or an ability to analyze a real life situation and solve problems associated with the situation. Experience in problem solving is also a factor to be considered in smart behavior.

Efficiency also enters the evaluation of intelligence and if you are naturally slow and make more mistakes than is considered standard then you are not as intelligent or more accurately not as smart about a situation. You can act very logically in some situations and be very smart or very emotionally and irrationally in many situations and not be smart.

Finally if you are gifted with talent which usually means a very good memory and good relationship or communication skills which are mostly learned then you may have the potential to become a celebrity, a very good leader, and may become rich with money in life. Getting rich, becoming a celebrity, or becoming a good leader is not a guarantee since very many intelligent humans are not celebrities or very good leaders and some are rather poor money wise. Famous humans usually have much EQ and enough IQ to make it big.

You can be intelligent and not very smart or good at solving important problems in life and ultimately being smart is much more important than being intelligent for the common human.

Smart: adj. a human having complete logical reasoning skills and successfully applying them to solve political and social and economic and scientific problems

Intelligent: adj. possessing the ability to memorize and process much information but it is not frequently a measure of how smart you are in life
