8 Things That Emotionally Intelligent People NEVER Do

5. THEY DON’T ASSUME THAT A BAD FEELING LEADS TO A BAD LIFE

One very obvious sign of high emotional intelligence in understanding that we can’t all be happy all of the time. Just because you are having a bad day doesn’t mean that your life is falling apart. It means that a certain number of factors have conspired together to make you have a bad day. Happiness is a choice, but that doesn’t mean that we have to choose it every time.

6. THEY DON’T BEFRIEND EASILY

One of the most important things in life is who you choose to surround yourself with. Being aware of how other people make you feel and why it is critical to making good choices when it comes to friends. Again, much like all aspects of emotional intelligence, this isn’t something that happens overnight.

7. THEY DON’T ASSOCIATE COMPOSURE WITH EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Just because you are emotionally intelligent, that doesn’t mean that you don’t occasionally lose it. We all do. Being emotionally intelligent doesn’t mean you are an emotionless robot. It just means that you know how you feel, why you feel that way, and deal with it accordingly.

8. THEY CHOOSE THEIR OWN THOUGHTS

Emotionally intelligent people are often seen as stubborn. This is because they own their thoughts and emotions equally, with a deep understanding of how others influence their emotions. It’s not as much stubborn as it is picky.

  1. I was not aware that I was emotionally intelligent until I went on a two day course. I have also not had the easiest life, some things happened that were totally beyond my control, others, well we are all allowed to make mistakes. I try to live my life the way I am meant to live it, not by other people’s demands and expectations.

  2. Number 5 should be on bill boards. I love this one and the opening statement resonates with me so much, I’ve been trying to explain this to so many and trying to find friends who think like I do. Sadly most people follow the script and the masses.
