Emotional intelligence (EI) "refers to the ability to perceive, control and evaluate emotions."[1]

The five components of emotional intelligence are: self-Awareness, self-Regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills.

Many businesses offer their employees seminars or courses on emotional intelligence in order to boost their employees effectively and to create more harmony in the workplace.

Raising emotional intelligence is a big part of character education, something liberals have sought to replace.

Benefits of Emotional Intelligence

There are many advantages of having high emotional intelligence, such as self-awareness, empathy and social skills, it also makes people better leaders, and increases their emotional maturity. [2][3] It also boosts productivity, compassion, leadership skills and builds better relationships. [4]

Problems with Low Emotional Intelligence

One problem with low emotional intelligence is that people cannot handle hard truths in life, and thus safe spaces are being commonly made because of this. Other issues include blaming others, lack of empathy, not being able to understand how others feel, and many more. [5] However, one of the biggest problems with low emotional intelligence is that it links to criminal behavior, as studies have shown that convicted offenders have lower emotional intelligence than most people.[6]

Emotional Maturity

Emotionally mature people seek to fix the problem or behavior rather than blame someone else for their problems. [7] This involves putting how others feel before oneself this develops character and builds personal growth. [8] It also involves being flexibility such as being able to see every situation as unique, and a way to adapt to it. [9]

Liberal Response

Despite being a conservative trait the term and promotion for it is unfortunately exploited to promote left-wing causes and often used for emotional manipulation of children in the school systems because of Daniel Goleman's book "Emotional Intelligence", promoting concepts such as reducing core subjects as a social element to homosexual acceptance in schools and even banning corporal punishment.[10]
