Can you manage your emotions and behavior to a positive outcome? Our brain is hard-wired to respond emotionally to events before it is able to process things logically. When you develop self-awareness, you can stop wasting your time attempting to push your emotions aside and allowing them to control you. Instead, you are able to understand them, the feelings associated with them and manage them to your benefit and the benefit of the people around you. In my case, until a few months ago I was not aware that ‘communication’ is my topmost strength, which enables me to tell stories, verbalize my thoughts articulately and think out loud. What I had no clue about is that I also have a similar need of verbal processing, talking things out, wanting clear and articulate communication from the other end etc. and when this need is unmet, I often feel frustrated. Simply having this awareness allows an automatic alarm bell to ring the minute I feel emotionally vulnerable. It offers me choice on how to manage the situation and react to it because I know why I’m behaving the way I am. It enables me to step back and take a look at the need of the situation, my own needs and the needs of other parties involved. Overtime, with practice, my brain will learn how to manage such situations by accepting my emotions, managing them and finding ways to fulfil the needs of my strengths. EQ, is a highly learnable trait in that sense.
