ANGER ON MY MIND

Adaptability: A hallmark of emotional intelligence

Posted on: January 20, 2008

I must admit that I am an avid watcher of the discovery channel. In recent times I have observed how well animal learn to adapt to their ever changing environment. Some of these adaptations happen quickly and some over time—the point is that they happen.

Human are highly adaptable as a species also. However, as individuals some of us tend to seek the safely of the family, even when it has the propensity to destroy us. Emotionally intelligent individuals are different. They have the skills to experience their own emotions and the emotions of others. It is this very fact that allows them to make decision that are adaptive and foster not only survival but thriving.

We cannot ignore part of us that helps us understand what we need—to do this is to our own determent. Instead I encourage that we build an emotional vocabulary, clarify an understanding of our own emotions and use this information meet our needs in ways that help us to adapt to ever changing wind of life—believe it or not this is an important component of anger management.
