Product Description

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE In A Nutshell
Personality Patterns For Personal Effectiveness
By Psychologist “Dr. Dan” Matzke, PhD

What is “emotional intelligence”? Emotional intelligence refers to an awareness of and the ability to manage emotions and to create motivation. It is a set of personal and interpersonal skills (including the ability to apply knowledge & understanding) related to one’s personality and behavior patterns, which results in a person being able to function more effectively in life.

This book explores key elements of "effective personality" which promote emotional intelligence, personal effectiveness and well-being. The word "personality" refers to an individual's total make-up, including psychological and emotional characteristics, and behavior. The phrase "effective personality" refers to an individual who is highly functioning, who is well-adjusted, a person who is successful at living – thriving & prosperous. They would tend to have a high level of self-esteem and self-confidence, a sense of purpose and direction in life, and would feel that they are being productive, useful, and contributing to the world around them. Characteristics of effective personality tend to minimize stinkin’ thinkin’ and to maximize effective thinking.

These traits of effective personality can be developed through study and practice, thereby increasing an individual’s personal and professional success in life. Let's begin by stating that no one individual has all of theses characteristics all of the time, but we can all work toward developing them more in our lives. The key elements aren't presented in any particular order or priority - rather they tend to overlap and interact with each other, much like the strands of a rope.

EXCERPTS:

“Emotional intelligence entails facing difficult and unpleasant issues. These guideposts can also point to matters that one is ignoring or avoiding (due to fear, dread, etc.) which are road blocks and barriers towards the next step and/or the next level in one’s endeavors and life journey. A good “rule of thumb” is that ten percent (10%) extra effort invested in using these powerful skills and tools results in a ninety percent (90%) difference.”

"While the following pointers are basic and primary, they are critical and essential for personal effectiveness. Being mindful of and practicing these effective actions can yield significant benefits – enabling one to “take a hold of life” and face challenges with courage and confidence."

1.0 out of 5 stars What a load of Twaddle 10 May 2013
By Gaynor
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Never read so much rubbish in the one place. Found it hard to get to the bottom of what it was all supposed to mean. For real guidance and wisdom, read the Bible. Much easier to understand. Do not waste your money on this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 20 Jan 2013
By Russell L. Christopher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Need a mental tune-up but don't have the time for office visits? Here's a one-stop source to both refresh what you may already know (but are not acting on) and to get a new perspective on the essentials of the human experience. Read and implement as you see fit in your life. It works if you do.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Production (formatting) and without a rational narrative 4 Nov 2012
By idearavore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Almost at the very beginning (immediately after the copyright notice!) we see:-

"Parts of this book have been previously published in other works by Dr. Dan"

That pretty much explains what's wrong with this book -- it seems to be just a cut and paste of trite paragraphs from other documents around about.

I hope that this review will save others the time and bandwidth that I wasted on this.

So far this book is great. I'm not learning new things yet because I've read from many different sources but it is a great review book as well as a great beginners tool.
