I came across this service when I was preparing materials on self esteem for our Love 1A class. They provide workshops for teachers and emphasize building strong self esteem, coping with bullies, and eventually they began to speak of emotional intelligence. I'm not up to date on all their materials, but as I updated their URL, I discovered their materials advertising workshops for major corporations and schools to train their people in "emotional intelligence." I downloaded and revised for easier reading a couple of their files. In this shared reading I'd like you to try to understand the theory of emotional intelligence and how it applies in the Naked Space. Where they are suggesting workshops for sale, I'll be asking you to draw on our theoretical resources to actually use emotional intelligence to improve our exhibits and discourse.
- I want you to come away from this shared reading realizing that there's a lot more to intelligence than IQ tests. Emotional intelligence is about your IQ when it comes to interpersonal relationships, of which our families, communities, and enterprises all exist.
Concepts and Key Words:
- emotional intelligence - could be a score if it's measured like IQ. Check out the products they offer to test your employees, students, workers, whatever to determine their emotional intelligence. Those are paper and pencil tests, folks. Which aren't half bad if they're used appropriately. In this country, they rarely are.
- emotional intelligence - this is the intelligence or ability we exhibit in being aware of and sensitive to Others in interacting interpersonally.
- intrapersonal intelligence - the intelligence or ability to relate the many bits and pieces of our own intelligence to make sense of our lives as a whole - kind of like being able to function effectively within our apperceptive mass. See also Emotional Intelligence for further definition.
- interpersonal intelligence - the inteligence or ability we exhibit to relate in illocutionaryfashion, as well as in instrumental and governance discourse with others and to fashion and work within interpersonal relations
