So I ask you again, Do you have poor emotional intelligence? Do you see it in yourself that you need help? It’s good if you recognize it. Being able to interact with people is important. Communication is key and learning how to speak without having to bite your tongue is a start.

8 suggestions from on how to communicate effectively:

When you interact with people practice these communication skills and they will help you. Being emotionally empathetic when having a conversation means
showing an ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Your feelings are not the only important ones in the conversation. Always allow the other person to reflect and share too.
