For those who may not know, emotional intelligence is something many people have but a lot of people lack. It is a person’s ability to manage their own emotions and understand those of others as well.

If you are emotionally intelligent chances are you also have quite a big heart and care deeply for others. While some people may see that as a bad thing, having a big heart is a very good thing. The more aware you are of the emotions of others and the more capable you are of understanding those emotions the better person you’re going to be overall in some ways. 

Below I am going to go over some of the signs that might indicate you have a big heart and are emotionally intelligent. As a big-hearted person that always relates to other people, I can honestly say this seems quite true for most emotionally intelligent people I know. Don’t let people beat you down for caring, these things are signs that should be celebrated not signs that should be looked down on.

12 Signs You Have A Big Heart And A High Sense Of Emotional Intelligence:

1. You are kind to most everyone within reason.

As someone who is emotionally intelligent, you know that we are all going through our own issues. You don’t try to make things worse on anyone and are always as kind as you can be. Sure, you’ll get snappy if needed but usually, it’s not needed.

2. You believe deeply in love.

Because you have such a big heart love is something you believe in with all you have to offer. You want love more than anything else and know it will come eventually. You are someone who always tries to see the good in others.

3. You treat others how you would want to be treated.

You know that in this world we should treat people well unless given a reason not to. You do not want to treat people in a way you would not want to be treated and so you don’t. You treat them kindly and are as nice as possible because that’s what kind of energy you wish to put out into this world.

4. You hate seeing people upset because it makes you sad.

Because you can relate to others so much you don’t like seeing people upset. Their sadness makes you sad and it brings you down big time. While this can be a problem sometimes, it usually helps you to help others.

5. Sometimes you’re a bit of a people-pleaser even though you know you shouldn’t be.

Because your heart is so big you tend to do more than you should for the people in your life. You cannot please everyone and sometimes you forget that. You tend to try far harder than you should and sometimes for the wrong people.

6. You’re always doing what you can for the people who matter the most to you.

The people who matter the most to you know they can come to you for just about anything. You are always there for them and you always make an effort. You’re not going to abandon them when they need you the most.

7. You care deeply about Mother Earth.

You know this planet is our home and that we need to take care of it. You can tell that things are pretty bad off and do your best to make a difference. You care more than most, that’s for sure.

8. You tend to be quite curious about other people.

As someone with a high emotional intelligence, you tend to be quite curious about other people. You like to get to know others and really break things down in your own mind about them. It’s almost something you could consider as being a talent.

9. You do not hold grudges.

You’re not the kind of person who holds grudges. You know we all make mistakes and so you don’t hold things against other people. Life goes on no matter what.

10. You love making memories.

Memories are something you value big time. You know that in the end memories will be all we have. No one lives forever and someday the people you make the most memories with will no longer be here on this planet.

11. You can usually tell what kind of character a person has right off the bat.

You’re great at figuring people out and that relates back to your emotional intelligence. You can sense the intentions of others in many cases. While this might be a bit odd, it comes in handy.

Sometimes you can be affected by things a bit too much and you’re aware of it. You know you need to work on it and that’s what you’re doing. You are active in your emotional world and working to control things without bottling them inside.
