EQ

Who makes this up? Self serving brain dead I guess. ( ie, Eloi types).

(Sigh...) Another sign of what is now "important."

Slaughter to interviewer for a machinist position, "I like walks on a moonlit beach, puppies and cute cat memes."

Interviewer, "Well, how do you handle conflict and disagreements?"

Slaughter, "Hugs"

Interviewer, "Can you start Monday? You'll be provided with a vase on your roll-away for the flowers."

One emotion, plus another and another will lead to a complexity of behaviours of such massive inhibition, that eventually nothing will get done but needlework and hunting for vegetables!!

I think this is not so much what some of us think it is at first glance.

Emotional intelligence has been defined as "the ability to monitor one's own and other people's emotions, to discriminate between different emotions and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior" by Peter Salovey and John Mayer. This definition was later broken down and refined into four proposed abilities: perceiving, using, understanding, and managing emotions. These abilities are distinct yet related.[1] Emotional intelligence also reflects abilities to join intelligence, empathy and emotions to enhance thought and understanding of interpersonal dynamics.[39] However, substantial disagreement exists regarding the definition of EI, with respect to both terminology and operationalizations. Currently, there are three main models of EI:

Ability model
Mixed model (usually subsumed under trait EI)[40][41]
Trait model

Different models of EI have led to the development of various instruments for the assessment of the construct. While some of these measures may overlap, most researchers agree that they tap different constructs.

Basically, it sounds like the ability to read people and read one's own emotions, reactions, and behaviors to facilitate and manipulate people and groups of people.

This really is a key to success in most things in life relating to power and control.

You don't have to be the guy in the room with the highest IQ or the broadest and deepest knowledge if you can read and manipulate people and rise to power. Especially in the corporate world.

I know a guy like that, very very good at reading people and manipulating them without them even knowing it. He's also very smart on top of it. Fortunately he's also a good guy at heart, or he'd be dangerous otherwise.

Remember when they said,
"plays well with others" .
Wasn't me !
It's the same old rehash, getting people to work together and think the same.
It's ALL about the "Collective", Individuals need not apply.

I prefer to set my own EQ on a big Fender tube amp. Going direct into the board gives the moron sound man total control over your EQ.


Anyway, is it ok if I manage to pull some of these off one at a time?

1. They Can Handle Pressure Healthily

2. They Understand and Cooperate With Others

3. They're Good Listeners

4. They're More Open To Feedback

5. They're Empathetic

6. They Set an Example for Others to Follow

7. They Make More Thoughtful and Thorough Decisions

For example, I can do 4, but only once from you. So number 3 is out - if I want any more of your "feedback", I'll let you know.
And if I am doing number 6, and you are good at number 3, then we won't have a problem with number 2 unless you want me to test you on number 1.

And I'm good at number 7, because I am the opposite of number 5.

True, dat! I have been managing the public for over twenty years. Every one of 'em is a wild card. When meeting someone for the first time, I have two to three minutes to "read" them, and figure out how to best manage the conversation. Had an interesting conversation with one of the local fuzz about managing people, specifically about deescalating a tense or confrontational situation, and learned a new phrase, Verbal Judo. Very appropriate!

I don’t think some of you actually read the article or understand what they are talking about.
