EQ in a Nutshell
Emotional intelligence is the ability to perceive emotions, to access and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge, and to reflectively regulate
emotions so as to promote emotional and intellectual growth.
- Mayer & Salovey, 1997
Blending thinking and feeling to make optimal decisions
Talk to others. In one experiment men in a positive mood were more likely to talk to a woman and to make self-disclosures, which are important in social relations. Be interested in leisure activities. People in a good mood want to throw a party, go on vacation or go out for a meal. Enjoy those social interactions and leisure activities more.Resolve conflicts effectively. Studies have found people in a good mood are more likely to try and collaborate rather than avoid conflict and compete when they are put in a positive mood. Help others. When in a good mood, people are more likely to display what psychologists call 'prosocialbehaviour' - helping others and being generous with both time and money. Feel healthier.Experimental evidence shows that people in a good mood experience less pain and perceive themselves to be more healthy. Be more creative.People in a positive mood are more likely to think with originality and flexibility - perhaps through encouraging playfulness. Perform complex tasks better.Somewhat controversial this one but some evidence supports it although it probably depends on the nature of the task. Attribute success to their own skills.Good moods improve people's self-efficacy (our confidence in our own abilities).
