The Dark Side of Emotional Intelligence

Vesti bune cu telefonul. Un tip din Brasov doreste sa il cumpare pentru tatal lui. Nu ne-am tocmit la pret si nu am stat la “vrajeli”, negocierea s-a desfasurat fara compromisuri. A ramas sa ma sune cineva din Bucuresti ca sa ne intalnim (pana la proba contrarie).

In jobs that required extensive attention to emotions, higher emotional intelligence translated into better performance. In jobs that involved fewer emotional demands, the results reversed.

If your job is to analyze data or repair cars, it can be quite distracting to read the facial expressions, vocal tones, and body languages of the people around you. In suggesting that emotional intelligence is critical in the workplace, perhaps we’ve put the cart before the horse.
