WATCH: Can Emotional Intelligence Make Us Holier?

Best-selling author Daniel Goleman says EI takes us in the right direction

When he wrote Emotional Intelligence, psychologist and science journalist Daniel Goleman meant it as an argument for teaching children the basic skills of managing emotions and relationships. The skills of “emotional intelligence” (EI) are learned and learnable and include being able to regulate our emotions, being more self-aware, motivating ourselves, empathizing, being more resilient and relating in healthy ways to others.

In these video excerpts Goleman tells Aleteia what he thinks about the Year of Mercy, the relationship of emotional intelligence to virtue and the basic way we can tell if someone possesses emotional intelligence.
