Emotional Intelligence Decomposed 3 of 5
The following is third in a five part series of blogs will help bring clarity to the term emotional intelligence (EO or EI). This clarity is in a form of decomposition.
Self-regulation, a component of emotional intelligence, is the intrapersonal capability of controlling emotional responses. Self-regulation may require personal reflection. Individuals who are prone to taking time for personal reflection frequently have a greater capacity of self-regulation. Another characteristic of the self regulated individual is the ability to maintain emotional equilibrium, even in highly charged situations or at times when strong negative emotions are displayed by others. Self regulated individuals also use rational thinking and recognize emotional triggers that influence one's emotional responses.
Successfully regulating your emotions fosters productivity and emotional balance. It allows you to better control your actions and behaviors and directly impacts the outcome of a situation. Regulating your emotions can help you become more emotionally intelligent.
