ANGER ON MY MIND

Lower levels of emotional intelligence may be a prime factor in driving anger

Posted on: January 29, 2008

The longer I practice as an anger coach the more I see trends that help me to understand some of the cause of chronic anger. One unmistakable trend is that the lower the level of emotional intelligence higher the likelihood that that individual will have challenges with chronic anger. One of the reasons maybe linked to the fact that lacking emotional intelligence tends to cause an individual to miss cues about how they feel or how others feel. Essentially there is a continual interaction with the world that does not assess any of the emotional content (tone of voice, facial expressions, body language, and feelings) that surrounds the individual. The result is often interactions that are conflict riddled. 

Be warned that I am not suggesting that we all go around asking how each other feels. Instead I am suggesting that one develop emotional intelligence—hire a coach even. Contrary to what some may believe developing emotional intelligence skills is very possible. Learning a few skill can avert crisis and give you a new perspective on life. My experience tells me that it can save your marriage, job, important relationships and even enhance current relationships.
