Zeinab
کتاب نسبتاً کاملی که نه فقط هوش هیجانی، بلکه مسائل جانبی مربوط به آن را هم پوشش می‌دهد. یک جمع‌بندی از اکثر نکاتی که ممکن است جایی شنیده و با خود گفته باشید «حواسم باشه اینو حتماً رعایت کنم». پیشنهادهایش عملی هستند و واقعاً ایجادِ تفاوت می‌کنند. نثر کتاب هم اثر انگیزشی خوبی دارد.
گام لازم همراه، به یاد داشتن توصیه‌ها در زندگی واقعی و تلاش برای عمل به آن‌هاست. وقتی همه‌چیز خوب است و شما شادید، واکنش هیجانی هوشمند طبیعی و راحت به نظر می‌رسد اما در هنگام فوران هیجانات و روحیه‌های منفی واقعاً کار دشو

Good start but over indulged into EQ for various specific conditions (too much detail for me) also little scattered and many facets overlapped and intertwined

The book I read to research this post was Emotional Intelligence For Dummies by Steven J Stein which is a very good book which I read at http://safaribooksonline.com

Emotional Intelligence is a form of intelligence that is your ability to empathize with people and read their emotions and adapt accordingly. This is a relatively new branch of psychology and although society tends to measure intelligence in terms of academic performance there are quite a few other branches of intelligence, many of w

Useful guide for understanding Emotional Intelligence. I suggest this for anyone who'd like to learn more about how to interact with different types of people. There are many who are in need of support, but you can better help if you know how to approach each person individually.

I had to read this book for a class, but I believe there's a lot of useful information that just about anyone seeking to strengthen their relationships (work, home or otherwise) could benefit from. Not my usual reading,

This book was recommended by a tutor to assist in clinical practice. I feel a lot of the suggestions were geared towards people who were perhaps not from the caring professions and made some sections feel boring as they were basic. Some good exercises and points to muse

Um livro raso (superficial) nível de conceitos, promete mais do que entrega com demasiadas técnicas repetidas para vários exemplos.

Good book , to learn more social skills. It gives some solutions if you are a impulsive person and also a lot of tips to solve problems if you are in bad terms with friends and others.

Generally helpful in understanding emotional intelligence! There was too much detail for my needs, but the author makes it practical for all kinds of situations.

This is a very good read on emotional intelligence. Easy to follow, many practical examples and exercises and tons of useful ideas. I have read several other books on EQ/EI including other books by the author. Of course there is a lot of overlap, but every so often there are some new and interesting points. I can recommend this book to people who want a great and easily understandable introduction to EQ. Also, there are interesting chapters on EQ in certain situations (e.g. EQ in the workplace, ...more

Emotional Intelligence used to be called "Emotional Regulation". It is a good therapy for people who are empaths (like me) or people with PTSD who have anger issues.
It gives some good ideas on how to combat the emotions taking over your life. I learned a lot. Worth the read.

Good read on the basics of EI. Personally prefer this to Daniel Goleman's books.
