Back when I was a young girl, I remember my mother always classifying people into two separate categories: “street smart” or “book smart.”
I won’t share with you which category I fell into.
But this always had me wondering – why can’t we have a bit of both?
Well, good news. We can.
You see, there’s intelligence, the kind of thing that makes you smart, do great things, and get by in this world with ease. Then there’s emotional intelligence, and that’s a completely different ballgame. And the book specialists at Bulk Bookstore are saying, “play ball” when it comes to emotional intelligence, or, EQ (as it’s known in the streets).
By definition, emotional intelligence is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.
Bet you’re now wondering where you fall on that scale, right?
It’s okay, so were we, because at this point in our modern world, it’s no secret that emotional intelligence is critical to one’s success. Which is why we’re thrilled to present Travis Bradberry’s Emotional Intelligence 2.0 – a book designed to increase one’s EQ. And this killer book on emotional intelligence even breaks down the steps for increasing the more emotional side of your intelligence into four core skills:
3) Social Awareness
4) Relationship Management
If you’ve ever felt you lacked a bit in any of the aforementioned areas, or had a hard time managing your emotions in any situation this book is absolutely for you. It will not only help you to come to terms with where you fall short on the EQ scale, you’ll be given a step-by-step guide to quickly eradicate the problem. And hey, if the Dalai Lama found this book an essential tool in his emotional toolbox, then you know it has to be good. According to good old’ DL,
“Emotional Intelligence 2.0 succinctly explains how to deal with emotions creatively and employ our intelligence in a beneficial way.” The “2.0” factor of this book involves an updated test. This new edition of the emotional intelligence test will:
- Pinpoint which of the book's 66
emotional intelligence strategies will increase your EQ the most.
- Reveal the specific behaviors responsible for your EQ scores.
- Allow you to test yourself a second time to measure how much your EQ has increased from your efforts.
And then, ladies and gentlemen, it will allow you to grow – making this, the Emotional Intelligence 2.0 test, the best test you’ll take in your life.
