A high level of emotional intelligence (or E.Q.) is necessary for healthy relationships.
Couples who have a high level of emotional intelligence have a deep respect for each other, practice empathy, and are able to communicate their emotions effectively to their partner.
Research shows that E.Q. is a better predictor than shared interests when measuring the overall satisfaction of a relationship.
What makes a person with a high E.Q. a successful romantic partner?
Emotional Intelligence Results In Self-Awareness
A high E.Q. reflects a strong ability to see yourself as others do. It also requires an understanding of one’s own weaknesses and strengths. This usually results in a level of humility that keeps pride from negatively affecting the relationship.
People who are self-aware tend to measure their words and actions. They are considerate of others and understand that their behavior has a tangible effect on those around them. They practice self-compassion when they make mistakes and are likely to forgive others when they are wronged.
E.Q Leads To Better Listening Skills
A high E.Q. is associated with an ability to pay attention to people. This is the kind of interest in others that cannot be faked. Romantic interest has a direct correlation to showing authentic interest to your partner.
E.Q & Empathy
People who score high on assessments that measure E.Q. tend to also be empathetic.
They are able to identify the emotions of their partners and change their communication style accordingly. Empathizing with your partner helps you maintain open communication at all times.
There is good news for those who rate low on E.Q. – it can be developed. You can start with small steps today. Practice the three skills mentioned above to improve the communication in your relationships.
