Great read and share Anne!! My American friend who writes here: http://talesalongtheway.com/ I write about the ‘Human Impact’ we as a species put or place on each other. Also being Scottish, just Culture wise we tell the ABSOLUTE TRUTH about any subject. Many people send me things like this, from all over the World.
The Scottish and Irish have this “Emotion” placed upon them by the World, and I am 60% Scottish, 40% Irish (Ish) 😀 So I know how to answer anyone, be them real life or on the internet..And that is honestly. I speak to other people who blog or write from Scotland and we always agree our thoughts or thinking patterns and how we are perceived are the same.. Let me go through the list.. Great list Anne!!
You have a robust emotional vocabulary – I flunked School BADLY, but as an adult I taught myself emotions with the help of my Partner who I am known since I was 12 she was 10, and also my kids. I don’t think there is an answer, just different opinions and why. Just my observations.
To understand my reasons, maybe this is worth a read? : https://deliberatedonkey.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/murder-and-more-through-the-eyes-of-a-child/
I wrote my life there as it’s American readers mainly. Great site also!
You have a robust emotional vocabulary – Yes, through music and expressions. Music
is the ONLY thing our species is connected by and with that doesn’t make bad emotions.
You’re curious about people. – VERY. The Human species can be so nice and loving yet..
evil almost. But again I can only talk about what I see here in Scotland through World news. I guess my curious nature about this World is why I blog my thoughts and stories I write
You embrace change – Not well. But I try. When you have lived one way, it is hard to see
another way often.
You know your strengths and weaknesses – 100%, I am in full control. I must be..
You’re a good judge of character. – Because of who I was, what I did, yes. I can see a person for what they are in a moment or a heartbeat.
You are difficult to offend. On the internet, to be offended is choice, so never. In my personal like, if you read Deliberate Donkey I used to be easily offended and deal with it badly. But with these 3 as my reason, my partner and 2 daughters who are around 5 years old. It’s hard to feel hate..
You know how to say no (to yourself and others). Depends. Today as a grown adult who wishes he could re-live Childhood and see better or more fun, I think all that made me stubborn to the point I just could not be moved on my thinking..But my girls are helping 🙂 x
You let go of mistakes. If you read deliberate Donkey, I HAD to release my mistakes and stop re-living them.
You give and expect nothing in return. Always..
You don’t hold grudges. Never…I just connect with people or I don’t, there is no middle ground. I could re-visit my past and find anger.. x
You neutralize toxic people. Again depends because often I want to help people who are toxic. But again if they effect my World badly I walk away.. x
You don’t seek perfection. Never, because when you reach what you see as perfect, you make a new perfect and it never stops. So I am just happy to BE.. x
You appreciate what you have. I am a blessed Scottish lad for sure..But I don’t take it for granted, we all could lose all we have tomorrow and life is nothing maybe..
You disconnect. No I connect. Always I reach out and hope great people like Anne reach back. I have met (Example) 200 GREAT Friends online..I have maybe half. With people hate is a choice and if someone is just stupid or annoying. We have choice.
You limit your caffeine intake. I don’t drink Coffee 😀 Sadly. Wish I could
You get enough sleep. Because of my 3 disabilities, no. But I guess when I do sleep, BOY
I SLEEP 😀
You stop negative self-talk in its tracks. Always. Thinking negative can take you to hell…Or just a bad place
You won’t let anyone limit your joy. Never. My inner peace is growing.
I wrote this and today I am MORE. But never better or below any other person.
I reached a FULL inner peace. And it’s amazing..Totally Amazing and God helped..
Would be amazing if others answered back like this…
Anyone up for it? 😀
Good share Anne.. x
I have always been fascinated with Emotional Intelligence. What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Are You Emotionally Intelligent? Here’s How to Know for Sure
Emotional intelligence is a huge driver of success.
BY TRAVIS BRADBERRY
Author, ‘Emotional Intelligence 2.0’@talentsmarteq
When emotional intelligence (EQ) first appeared to the masses, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70 percent of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into the broadly held assumption that IQ was the sole source of success.
Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as being the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack. The connection is so strong that 90 percent of top performers have high emotional intelligence.
Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that…
