Emotional Intelligence

Is there even such a thing? The major proponent of Emotional intelligence is Daniel Goleman http://danielgoleman.info/

But Emotional Intelligence has its critics who argue this is merely a conflation between intelligence and emotions yet this idea appears to have taken on a life of its own with many people immediately claiming EQ or EI makes sense.

But does it? We will take an objective and thorough look at EQ and consider its validity, not by arguing it true or not but by understanding what it is and how we are might be affected by it or can cause effect by it. Join us in one of my favorite venues, the Assorti Cafe for what should be a lively discussion between perhaps reason and passion.

    This Emotional Intelligence really got me emotional.

    I wrote my perspective on this in one page under "More" above then "Files" then "Emotional Intelligence"

    Bad night for weather and traffic, poor topic, ill-tempered host. This barely should receive even one star but there are more stars in the future.

    Someone is going to have to encourage me to continue these weekday social meetings as I am not inclined to do so, but as always the group rules.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the topic and the people. I feel we heard a variety of topics throughout the night. It was a little hard to hear and I think many in the group could have been included a bit better.

    Emotional Intelligence automatically exists. Professor Goleman named it and wrote a book about it therefore it's existence can't be disputed. It would be as if I painted a small piece of wood yellow, used it to smush bananas, wrote the words "banana smusher" on the side and patented the device as a banana smusher. You could certainly argue its effectiveness, but it would in fact legally be a "banana smusher." Even if it is disproven as a psychological theory. The discussion alone proves its existence in the realm of psychological theory.

    I think Cafe Assorti might have closed or moved. Might want to check on this.

      I will check that out and find a new spot if it has thanks. I know their website is up but Yelp says closed. I think Rosslyn is probably still a good location so I will pick something convenient to the metro stations there.

      Also it looks like you are coming from Fredericksburg which will present a traffic snarl for you at that time. As a consequence you might want to arrive early and here please petition others to arrive early and get the conversation going if you like to make your commute well worth the while?
