Interpersonal Awareness, a Key Skill in Emotional Intelligence

One of the four domains of Emotional Intelligence is Interpersonal Awareness. Interpersonal Awareness is: understanding yourself, your goals, intentions, responses, and behavior.

An individual’s score on the EQ Map on this scale shows current feelings of how well he/she judges self and others. Interpersonal awareness requires a belief that in your eyes you are good enough to be accepted by yourself and others. A high score (skill to enhance) on Interpersonal Awareness shows an ability to express your thoughts and feelings in an easy and comfortable way to others. A low score (skill to develop) on this scale shows some of the problems in comfortably expressing how you think and feel.

Once you know your strengths and weaknesses regarding the domains listed above, you can begin the journey to enhancing your skills in these areas.
