We all come in on different rankings when it comes to just how emotionally intelligent we are. Some people are very emotionally intelligent and others are lacking in the area to a drastic extent.

For those who might not be aware emotional intelligence is basically a person’s ability to control and express their own emotions all the while being able to read those of the people around them. Emotionally intelligent people can face the things others are putting into this world from a very empathic and comforting stance because they are able to look at the bigger picture versus getting worked up over things that have nothing to do with them. Those who are high in emotional intelligence usually end up much more transformative overall in their lives.

Below I am going to go over some of the signs that come with being emotionally intelligent that not everyone is going to have present in their lives. If you can find all of these things within yourself, you are more emotionally intelligent than most other people and probably stand out among those in your life.
