Emotional IQ and your divorce:
Well, first of all, what is Emotional IQ? I had no choice but to turn to….WIKIPEDIA for a definition:
“the ability to monitor one’s own and others’ feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one’s thinking and actions.”
Emotional IQ is an evolving body of science.
Daniel Goleman wrote a book on the subject, Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ that is supposed to be rather popular and well received. Never read it personally, but it seems that it is based on the notion that those who are able to control their emotions are generally more successful not just socially, but in their interpersonal relationships, and certainly in their intimate relationships too.
How is your Emotional IQ? How did you handle say, jealousy, anger, threats, hate, fear, rage, sadness and other emotions in your marriage? Could a low emotional IQ have played a factor in your divorce?
