What is an Emotional Vocabulary and How Can it Help Me?
Have you heard of “emotional intelligence?” Perhaps you’ve heard it phrased as an “EQ” or “EI.” It’s become the latest buzzword in corporate America because those who study large organizations are realizing how important a high EQ is for people in leadership roles. Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify your own emotions as well as pick up on the emotions of others.
Emotional vocabulary goes hand in hand with EQ because being able to adequately express yourself and your feelings is crucial in communicating effectively with others. One benefit of having an effective emotional vocabulary is being able to assess your own emotions and better understand your own feelings. The second benefit of using specific words to label and identify emotions is then in turn being able to better understand and communicate with those whom you interact with.
Emotions are part of human nature, and if you want to improve your relationships and interactions with other humans, it would be beneficial to strengthen your emotional intelligence.
