Emotional intelligence (EQ) has manifested in various teachings, belief systems, and schools of thought for thousands of years, such as the emphasis on mindfulness in Buddhism. EQ refers to the interpersonal relationships that we build outside of ourselves (observing the emotions and behaviors of others), as well as the intrapersonal relationship that we build with ourselves through awareness of our own thoughts and feelings.
According to American psychologist and author of Emotional Intelligence, Daniel Goleman, emotional intelligence includes characteristics around self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. Self-acceptance refers to how we integrate our experiences, feelings, and improve our self-references.
EQ plays a part in every moment of our waking hours. And because of its breadth and intangible quality, it largely hums along in the background, evolving through our daily experiences.
But because we are living through the advancement of the Digital Era, new technology now offers insight into the thought patterns and behaviors that shape our EQ.
What if Machine Learning holds the key to the next level of human EQ, enlightenment, and discovery of our better selves?
A new course by Ai 4 Ei offers emotional intelligence learning and practice with a “Scientific-Based Approach innovative methods and the power of Machine Learning.” Ai 4 Ei delivers a report of strengths and weaknesses based on the various EQ abilities learned in the course. Ai 4 Ei emphasizes participants will discover habits of the mind, increase emotional self-awareness, resilience, a center of attention, and a positive outlook.
Ai 4 Ei participants receive personalized coaching (from a Goleman Ei certified coach) around EQ ability based on analysis of individual micro-skills (micro-skills are what we use to navigate day-to-day challenges). On-demand videos, downloadable resources, journal engines, coaching feedback, and AI analysis round out the technology-enabled positive psychology course.
“People’s beliefs about their abilities have a profound effect on those abilities. Ability is not a fixed property; there is huge variability in how you perform,” Goleman says in Emotional Intelligence. “People who have a sense of self-efficacy bounce back from failures; they approach things in terms of how to handle them rather than worrying about what can go wrong.”
The journey here on Earth is a singular event and the relationship with Self is the most transformative of them all. It is on the individual journey that we can find purpose, forge our path, and accomplish our biggest feats. Self-acceptance and -awareness – an inside job of the highest calling – is a lifetime in length. Technology may not give us all the answers but it could very well show us the way.
