Emotional Intelligence and Faking Your Personality

Emotional Intelligence and Faking Your Personality

The idea of 'emotional intelligence' took the world by storm in the mid-1990s. Everyone wanted to know their 'EQ' and was sure that it was much more important to success in life than IQ. Many professionals in human resources, education, clinical psychology and coaching began to believe that emotional skills and competencies, such as emotion management and understanding, were more important for high-level functioning than intelligence and personality. In the intervening years, scientists put these claims under the microscope to work out how important emotional intelligence is. Dr Carolyn MacCann will filter out facts from fads as she reviews the research on emotional intelligence. Does emotional intelligence exist? Can we measure it? Is it really as important to life success as the hype suggests? Find out the different ways that researchers conceptualise and measure emotional intelligence, as well as the usefulness of emotional intelligence in business, education and well-being. Event details Date: Wednesday 12 September 2012 Time: 5.45pm - 6.45pm Venue: Eastern Avenue Auditorium Cost: Free! Here's a link!
