Emotional Intelligence

A system of intelligence that is used to support a person in learning how to self-evaluate and accurately understand his/her own behaviour, how other people perceive them, to recognize how individuals respond to others, to become aware of attitudes, feelings, intents, emotions, and communication styles, and to promote these disclosures of awareness to others. In general, the ability to recognize, understand and control one’s own emotions so as to use them in ways that promote not only personal well-being but also that of others and of society generally.
