What Exactly is Emotional Intelligence?


From the Washington Lawyer:

Emotional intelligence is a set of skills, both social and emotional, that we tap into to better understand ourselves and others. We use these skills to attain awareness and information about our own emotions, to perceive the emotions of others, to communicate with people, to maintain relationships, and to deal with the stressors and challenges inherent in life.

This brief article (here) discusses emotional intelligence, its relevance to lawyers, and how it differs from a personality trait. A good introduction.
