Emotional intelligence is a skill that is in increasing demand. The World Economic Forum sites emotional intelligence as in the top ten mental skills that will get you a high paying position. Emotional intelligence is not a talent but a learned skill. This skill is acquired by learning how the brain perceives reality, learning that our actions are driven by our emotional response to stimulus, real or imagined, the emotions then lead to, often unconsidered, action. With brain training you learn that when you become objective about your own version of reality, you become increasingly empathetic to other persons perception of reality. This is part of being emotionally intelligent. To be emotionally intelligent is to know that everyone must help weave the fabric of society in order that it is strong enough to support us all and with this support, we each are able to live our individual best lives.
