Emotional intelligence is one of the most remarkable, yet rare traits in today’s world.
Being emotionally intelligent means possessing a claircognizant soul. It’s having the ability to identify and take care of your emotions, as well the ability to recognize the emotions of other people.
In other words, it’s being highly perceptive of your own mental responses and highly receptive to people’s emotional states of mind.
It is said that people who share these traits have a remarkable sense of self, nurture mindfulness, and as a result, are in perfect tune with their surroundings.
Here are 5 unique and remarkable traits only emotionally intelligent individuals and claircognizant geniuses possess:
1. THEY RESPECT THE IMPORTANCE OF APOLOGIZING
Being able to swallow your pride and having the courtesy to apologize doesn’t mean that you are wrong the other person is wrong. It just means that you would always put your relationship before your ego.
Emotionally intelligent people know and respect the importance of apologizing. They don’t find it hard to own up to their mistakes and admit whenever they are wrong.
2. THEY QUESTION EVERYTHING, EVEN THE THINGS THEY KNOW
Even though they are remarkable conscious individuals who possess brilliant minds, emotionally intelligent people never stop wondering about everything in life.
They tend to ask a lot of questions about everything they think they already know. The tricky part is – no matter how certain we think we are, there’s always something else we haven’t even heard of.
“The sign of intelligence is that you are constantly wondering. Idiots are always dead sure about every damn thing they are doing in their life.”– Sadhguru
3. THEY ALWAYS STAY TRUE TO THEMSELVES
Emotional intelligence does not mean pleasing everyone at your own expense.
Emotional intelligence is much more than being good to every living being out there. Mainly it’s about self-care and self-love.
It’s being free to stand your ground, feeling confident to say it like it is, without sugar-coating the truth or spreading pleasant-sounding clichés.
People with high emotional intelligence aren’t afraid to speak the ugly, brutal truth, even if they risk getting shamed or hated about it.
They would never apologize for their thoughts.
4. THEY AREN’T AFRAID TO SEEK HELP WHEN IT COMES TO THEIR MENTAL HEALTH
However, having in mind that everything in life comes with a price, emotionally intelligent people often feel overwhelmed and exhausted by their intense emotions and their highly receptive nature.
They aren’t afraid to seek help if necessary, in order to fully understand the meaning of their day-to-day emotions and feelings.
Emotionally intelligent people would never shy away from seeking help.
5. THEY EMBRACE SADNESS THE SAME WAY THEY EMBRACE HAPPINESS
And if there’s anything they understand the best, it’s the simple fact that being in touch with your own feelings doesn’t mean being happy all of your life, every second, and every minute of it.
On the contrary, it means being comfortable and brave enough to accept and embrace the darkness the same way you embrace the light.
It’s being fully aware of the emotional spectrum inside of us. That means accepting the anger, the sorrow, the misery, the grief, the happiness, the jealousy, the serenity, the good, the bad, and even the ugly.
