What Makes Me Tick
Personality, Emotions, and Social/ Emotional Intelligence
I'm introverted, I always have been. I have always been shy, I use to hide behind people. Because I wasn't sure about new people. I like to stay in my circle of friends and not really talk to outsiders. My mother and father were very different in this. Were my father loved talking to new people, my mother hates it she only likes talking to people she already knows. I talk peoples heads off when I get to know them, but at first I'm very quiet.
Although I'm introverted doesn't mean that I won't talk to others. I'm quiet or what some people call stuck-up which I'm not. But after I get to know people I warm up to them and start talking so much they wish I hadn't. I am shy but very loyal to people.
Normally, I'm calm and easygoing. I try not to let my frustrations show, by not saying anything and blanking out.
Understanding my emotions helps me be able to express the right ones, at the right time. If I couldn't do that I'd be always getting my emotions mixed up and not be able to control them and get overrunned by them.
My Social/Emotional Intelligence
The way I keep myself calm is to take a step back and see what is happening and figure out the best way to react to the situation. By doing so I calm myself down. By being calm I can tell peoples emotions, by body langue, facial expressions, and how they act. I can then know how to handle that person, so I don't upset them more.
I will always need to grow this area to help me in the long run.
The Importance of Understanding Myself, My Emotions,and My Social/ Emotional Intelligence to My Future Story
