Summary

What is the single delineating factor of someone who is happy versus someone who is lonely? Emotional intelligence.

Think about this scenario for a moment. Two persons with equal IQ set forth their journey in life. One had massive success...relationships, career, health, and wealth. The other one struggled massively. Doesn’t this scenario depict the reality of many people?

We all have two minds. One is our rational mind, and the other one is our emotional mind. Take a guess...which of these two minds do you think compose a bigger percentage in our daily decision making? If you chose the emotional mind, did you make that decision emotionally or rationally? Haha...but it’s true, isn’t it? We make purchases emotionally and then try to rationalize it with logic afterward....

The Science of Emotional Intelligence is a deep look into what makes up the majority of our decision-making. Every lesson and principle is scientifically driven and made to be as actionable as possible. If you often feel sad, lonely, and bored...it’s not your fault! Think about it. We spend 20 years in school and learn about math, science...did we have a lesson on emotional intelligence? I certainly did not have it, and my best bet is that you did not have it, either....

“In a very real sense we have two minds, one that thinks and one that feels.” (Daniel Goleman)

What could be made even better in your life right now? How much has this description resonated with you already? How important do you honestly feel emotional intelligence is? Think about it. Have you ever gotten angry at something and then realize that it was so foolish to be angry? Why were you angry? What happened inside your body? What fired off?

Unlike other guides, The Science of Emotional Intelligence is an actionable and scientifically backed guide to aid you on your journey to get more out of this river of life. Unless you change how you are, you will always have what you’ve got. Now is the time to stop living under your potential. Are you ready to take back control of your emotions...and become emotionally intelligent?

You will discover:

  • How to ask yourself the right questions to know yourself even deeper.
  • How to become “emotionally literate”.
  • How to build your “emotional six-packs” so your emotional intelligence is long-lasting.
  • How to better handle your different emotions and understand how each of them serves you. 
  • How to weaken your negative emotions and strengthen the positive ones.
  • And much more.

Jim Rohn, the original teacher of Tony Robbins, once said: “Never wish life were easier, wish that you were better.”

Whatever you could dream of, someone else has already done it. It is possible, and emotional intelligence is possible if you have the right blueprint to guide you.

Explantions make things happen

This book is a great explanation of emotional intelligence and what happens in your brain.
When you understand it is so much easier to cope with (these) emotions. And also means you can to help the other people around you with there emotional issues. In addition, it helps to understand why people 'go off the rails' and how to help that not to happen.
So glad to have listen this.

Fantastic Book

Interesting listen. I found this book very engaging and easy to listen through. Keep in mind this is a science based book that presents information and concepts. This is not a self help book. Good for those who want to learn more about how the brain works as it relates to emotions. A very insightful look into how our emotions, and our ability to monitor and control them, can determine the quality of our lives.

Very informational and encouraging

Very informational and encouraging if one doesn't "score" high on Emotional Intelligence. It parses the difference between being smart and being wise. And says that these are skills that can be learned, but it, like everything else requires work.

Related to my work

It proves many things about human emotions which we had assumed and it should allow counselors to make remarkable progress in their work...From my point of view since I am writing a book on stress management there are literally hundreds of light bulbs that have gone off in my head, and I know wonder if another book on Stress management is really necessary.

This was the best book I've listen in years

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in individual human development. It can be considered a self help book, sure, but it is very entertaining and not very bossy if you know what I mean. It is as interesting as the Discovery channel. It is not new - 1995 - and I plan to listen an updated version. All I can say is, unless you are already 100% happy with your existence on earth, and feel your family and work life is 100% of what it could be, read this book - it helps. It helps you understand how the human brain developed, why we act the way we do, and how life can be happier for you and those around you.

There's actually a pretty decent section on this

This is one of the must listens on anyone's listening list. Along with a few others - The Little Prince/Alchemist,This is a marquee book that transcends other academics and correlates with all aspects of life across multiple relationships within marriages, friendships, family, friends and the workplace. For those struggling in marriages, there's actually a pretty decent section on this, which frankly, would foretell divorces. And for those struggling with parenting 'troubled' kids, this is just as insightful. The one marshmallow now vs. later study was popularized by THIS book into our everyday masses. A little bit of everything for everyone, with a scientific approach, way ahead of its time.

NO ONE STAR HERE

This is a book everyone should listen. What strange creatures we are! Our left frontal lobe and our right frontal lobe can be the strongest of allies, or they can be the bitterest of enemies, almost wanting to kill each other sometimes. Evan Scott does a superb job illustrating this phenomenon, while moving the listener along at a brisk and interesting pace. Is there anyone out there who can explain the numerous, although minority, number of one star reviews? I don't get it. How can anyone think this book stinks, just because the subject matter isn't their cup of tea? I sense fear.

Emotionally great.

This is the book you want to help you understand yourself and the people around you. It is exceptional psychological principles put in plain english. I enjoyed the information and this book helped me understand myself more than before. The Science of Emotional Intelligence is applicable and makes absolute sense. How people develope and how that applies to who they are or what they can be is interesting. I appreciate this book and tell you now that it gave me a great appreciation for how I was raised and what my parents taught me. You need to listen this book it will become the deciding factor for how people handle things in their lives and how we can understand other so much better thatn we do today. This is a must listen book.

Thought provoking book

This book has been around for awhile but current MBA programs have begun focusing on emotional intelligence in the classroom. It is an amazing interesting concept that, when understood, can help with navigating organizations.

A word of caution for prospective listeners - this listens more like a textbook than a story. It is worth the effort but don't go in assuming the pages will fly by.

A must listen for everyone

Some great research and principles, this should be taught in schools and business. The world would be a much happier, more peaceful and more productive place. I really like how they have the easy to digest half and the deep science and research half.

Emotional Intelligence

The book itself, takes a closer look at the human potential within the area of emotions and how people interact, react and communicate their feelings within the arena of human potential. In many societies, the IQ has been the tool for measure intelligence, but this book takes a closer look at how emotional intelligence can matter more than IQ and the way our society can be at a higher level of living, by acknowledging the resiliency within emotional awareness and response.

Required listening

It's such a simple concept, really... There's a huge difference between book smarts, and emotional intelligence. We see so many allegedly smart people doing such stupid things. This book explains why that is. I would love to make this required lisening for every member of Congress.

The original and definitive

This is the original text and the most in depth. Start here, if this topic interests you. Some wording is dated but that's to be expected given it was published over 20 years ago. Just something to note.
