Do you think you have low or high emotional intelligence? Emotional intelligence determines how you react around others and how you treat the people in your life. People with high emotional intelligence tend to make great leaders and friends, whereas people with low emotional intelligence often find it harder to maintain friendships.

Check out 4 ways to raise your emotional intelligence here.

1. Regularly Empathize With Others

Empathy is understanding why someone is feeling a certain way, and being able to let them know that you understand how they feel – so it is a very important part of having high emotional intelligence. If you struggle to empathize with others, ask yourself these questions; how would I feel in their situation? When did I last feel like that? What happened to make them feel this way?

2. Ask Rather Than Demanding

Generally, people don’t like to be told what to do. Even if you feel like you have the right to tell them to do something, try to ask them to do it instead. Most people will appreciate that you asked, rather than demanded, and they will like and respect you more. Of course, in some situations, telling rather than asking is the only option.

3. Make The Environment More Positive For Your Presence

If you make the effort to smile and have positive body language whenever you are around other people, they will feel less stressed and they will associate seeing you with a happy environment.

4. Praise Others More

Flattery won’t get you everywhere, but it can make you some strong friends and allies. Praise people who you know have worked hard and done a good job, and they will notice and remember your praise. It is nice to acknowledge the individual efforts people makes, and everyone appreciates recognition.

What did you think about this list? Do you think these are important traits to have? I think it is important to have high emotional intelligence if you work in a leadership role, or if you live with others!
