Wikipedia gives a good overview of the term Emotional Intelligence. But what are the implications for writers and others today?
I love this ad from Mercedes-Benz from Ads of the World that seems to sum up the functions and importance of both sides of the brain. Which side do you think emotional intelligence is linked to? See credits for the ad below
Swedish “love coach”, Carolin Dahlman, gave a presentation to our writers’ group around the idea of networking in order to be published. Most of the large group of writers who attended were hoping to be published one day. Her message was that in this fast-moving world we need to self-promote through the internet and other technology at our disposal, and to go out and meet people and talk about our projects. Admittedly, she has found a saleable niche, in that many lonely people need her psychological know-how, and her skills for relating to others. At the same time, she knows how to self promote, loves what she does, and has boundless energy for doing so.
The fifth one is the hardest to achieve; many parents will agree with this, as small children are naturally egotistical.
