important concept emotional intelligence mental health and wellbeing so we will try to bring
out this concept in the sphere of three different environment in our personal life what we call
at home and what is the application and interconnects of this three concepts in the school environment
how adapted students behavior students teachers behavior and how it appears the whole classroom
atmosphere and also we look into how ha these effects our work related behavior of job outcomes
so before i go into details about these three concepts i would like to show a small ah video
that will summarizes how emotional disturbances affect human behavior at work place this is
what we call the unpredictable behavior of (video starts: 01:30) this is the last time
this is the last time to you know i am tired of you stringing me along what is going on
into the lab and passion someone needs to find out what it was about yeah oscar says
that is not sound like a sincere apology to me and i do not accept it this is about you
having an outburst in a public space and not telling anyone why yeah it is messed up you
know what i am so concerned about oscars wellbeing that i will give one hundred dollars to who
ever can tell me what the call is about there is a bounty out for information on your diary
if you want to share with law i would share you twenty five bucks a day hey oscar am out
of here kavin i just want to say that seem kind of angry before is everything ok may
i talk about it no get out of here kevin i am eating shut the door i am just trying to
talk to him where is someone saying here disgusting are you crying look if i wanted to talk about
it with my friends none of whom work here listen you i am so angry at you i cannot i
will tell me you mind me tell me yours no oscar hey hey i heard you had a corner phone
i had love to hold it and just see how i feels okay but what is its password protected there
is an option business affairs okay i will be more specific what do you doing i am not
a part of this why you are looking though my things those are my car keys really looking
for your keys in my drawer yes get away from my stuff i am used up from all this intrigue
(video ends: 04:21) yeah that is exactly the situations taken from office that happened
just no saw what is happening to this guy ah you just imagine a workplace while you
are working and people all around you that behaving in such manners what will happen
to you so this video that summarizes the unpredictable behavior of people at work place these are
not nothing but the the expression of unusual emotions so what do you think about it is
it a sign of once emotional intelligence low level of emotional intelligence medium or
high are a very immature type of emotional intelligence so it it seems that all these
people who were reacting out bursting are bullying at others ah reacting at the others
maybe they are losing the sense of how exactly they should be behave at work place so when
you talk about in terms of health and wellbeing how do you relate to this situation say for
a you you are a i would like to quote one more examples the let us begin with mental
health an introduction so all the mental health has been defined
by many people in many ways so to me the mirror understanding of mental health is just like
the harmonious growth and development of one’s personality ha ha ha how well how balanced
is your personality ah to deal with ah the ah everyday demands of life but say for examples
you are upset at home you are upset at your home due to a conflict with your partner parte
or kids or any family members you know you love all of them so you not react the way
you should and then suddenly you left for office and then you left for office so when
you reached your office suddenly you find an empty glass on your table
empty glass on your table then you rang the bell call the peon and then you blasted
blasted him with lot lots of anger hard words disgusting feeling etc etc with heavy reactions
so just imagine how would be the situations there after then suddenly the peon goes out
of the scene saying too many things to himself talking you know self-engagement a lot of
what a man were gone with these man there must be something wrong with this person at
home so that is why so in the process what we are actually doing by re acting without
and fault towards the peon we are making our day full of anxiety tension stress you are
creating a climate of frustration so which causes the whole atmosphere full of anger
dissatisfaction etc so in the process you are spoiling the day for yourself as well
as other colleagues at work so if this kind of behavior continues probably the man mentally
sick or psychologically heavily disturbed after sometimes so that that that creates
indication that how a person should behave at work place and what should be the mental
state of affairs because as you all know that our psychological state carry forward towards
it day for work so that is why we are trying to study it not only our work prospective
ah similar kind of things also when you deal with a a a disturb children’s in our classrooms
suddenly you will find ver very many intelligent persons and displaying very unusual behavior
which is not good for the classrooms e while the teaching is going on you will find some
people will be taking to each other some people were chatting on mobile so so this kind of
behavior unwanted behavior is a sign that the student is not in control see his behavior
is not in right side so what would be the way out? what could be the role of emotional
intelligence in bringing that behavior into classroom situations to make him effective
in his academics these are some of the things that also happen in some of the situations
like we earlier discussed like you could you relate the mental state of this person he
is exceptional intelligence as far as force is concerned but what gone wrong when what
went wrong with this person that he displayed such kind of behavior can you imagine that
ahm even a people a person which highly intelligent would be regulated will be exceptionally a
good in his performance in his related activities could display this kind of behavior so some
people say even intelligent people can display stupid behavior this is also another a person
who is engaged in continuous talking and exchange with some people with full of tension anger
and anxiety this is definitely not a good state of mental health this is also happens
in our everyday life husband wife conversations sub say for examples early morning you get
up having a cup of tea over tea table but suddenly a hot argument starts from there
and see the rest of the day is well known what will happen after this so people often
say that deficient emotional skills maybe the reason more than ah half of the marriage
ends in divorce it is not only it will lead to only diverse but forget about diverse e
e e if you think that family is first priority but your family will be full of disturbances
will full of formal as far as psychological climate is concerned so it is very much important
to understand the concept of emotional intelligence to discuss whether emotional intelligence
contributes to mental health and wellbeing and also to project the application of emotional
intelligence in the promotion of mental health so as you all know that these are three important
theories that talks about emotional intelligence so the ability model talks about ha ei consists
of four important characteristic while the personality based approach talks about it
is coping skills that one needs to master to deal with the demands of the environment
while goleman’s says there are the some start competencies required for ah effective
performance at work place and there is another theory which also comes under the mixed model
of emotional intelligence were cooper and sawaf says that emotional intelligence is
the ability to sense understand values and effectively apply the power and document of
emotions as a source of human energy information trust creativity and influence so the idea
is here they are how to master the human emotions by controlling by regulating and effectively
managing if you can master on our emotions that will be the source of all human energy
for leading towards creating trust creativity influence and confidence and others may be
after that we will be able to excel in our respective fields so these are few concepts
they are related to ah our ability affairs when you talk talk about people or compare
people in terms of their smartness we say some are smart people some are dull people
some are just average people so what is what is that that makes a person smart what are
the criteria that we talk some people are smart versus dull any idea? maybe one of the
marker may be confidence is not it? anybody who express himself confidentially clear expression
yes good presentation anything else you think that it is a even people say a person who
is well dressed or also thoughtful thorough understanding of the topic you know for understanding
while dull people are afraid of facing others afraid of talking to others that means low
confidence unclear ideas confusion poor communication unable to express
so these are some of the important markers that makes a person so when you talk about
ei you know there are four important measures that you know emotional self-awareness emotional
expression and emotional awareness and of others so these are three important that creates
the emotional literacy base is very much important for management of emotion a person who is
able to express himself until you understand others emotions and your exact state of affairs
what at the right moment what is happening to you are you comfortable? are you going
well with yourself? ah are you not in a discomfort zone? so this kind of assessment will make
sure that whether you are going to express certain things confidential correctly or not
emotional expression are you really true to your emotional expressions? or are you faking?
are you authentic to your expression? are you manipulating? so if you are manipulating
you cannot hold it for longer time but if it is expressive authentic it will be expressive
spontaneous and enduring so that is why emotional accurate emotional expression is very important
at the time of you know ahhm making any kind of presentation or many making any kind of
interaction with outside world at the same time you also have to understand the prospective
of others what is happening at the right moment to others the way suppose you are making some
presentation what is the impact of that presentation on others? could you imagine it? what is happening
to other people looking at their face their reaction their response so if it is real impacting
them then there will be discussion questions interactions etc if it is not there so that
is why when you ask questions in the class is that clear to all so if you find that there
is no answer at all either you perceive that there is no clarity at all or people understood
to all so this is how we take things into granted but when we talk about is it emotion
that makes people intelligent or it is intelligent that makes people smart so i can say that
it is combination of both when you intelligently express your emotions to others so that makes
a better presentation and that makes a person to be a smart person but at the same time
even the smart guys intelligent guys can fall trap of their own emotions if they are emotion
is not in a good state so that is why we often say that it is not that how good you are thinking
you can only thinking you can only think good when you are feeling good so because we all
know that feeling good feeling leads to good thinking and good thinking leads to good actions
so that is why emotions always affect human thinking human behavior if you are feeling
very bad at the right moment say for examples like you only ask my students ah why did you
come late suddenly the students are i was feeling head out so just imagine a little
bit of mood swing you suppose simply you say sir i was not feeling well even some people
also call me sir i am not feeling well so i can come to the class so just imagine a
little bit of mood swing can make you to decide to bunk the class not to come to class or
a little bit of mood swing (refer time: 20: 43) can disturb the whole day
so what is this mean little of mood swing you are not in control you that means you
are not in control of your emotion you are not in control of your emotions
so that means it reflects emotional instability or you can say emotional turmoil like the
way we observe what is happening in that video clips and yes this will also affect your coping
skills unable to cope unable to cope with the situation because you all know that coping
is very much important to survive stressful conditions so when you are trying to cope
with your stressful ah ah situation say for examples you get up you got up from the bed
and suddenly we felt that severe headache so how far you keep on coping with the headache
that will decide the rest of the day whether you are going to be engaging any kind of activities
or not? so yes if you are not able to cope with them the situations and that aggravates
that that creates continuous stress tension anxiety etc etc that will impair your health
that will impair your emotional health your psychological as well as your physical health
if you are not emotionally stable your psychological disturbed and once you are psychological disturbed
that will create so many psychosomatic disorders i hope you understand psychosomatic disorders
say stating from simple tension headache nausea vomiting etc indigestion constipation etc
etc and as you all know that these are related to directly to our all endocrine systems that
will affect other areas of our life like that will create sever stress affecting the thalamus
hypothalamus etc and it is seen that it will affect the whole normal systems and may be
causing cancer so most of the cancer are caused by there is a fifty percent of cancer having
grass roots in human stress and that this how it is directly related to human health
and happiness this is where emotional intelligence are plays a very important role the scientific
journey begins in a study infact this was taken from one of the book that was written
by ah ah clarrochi chan caputi and roberts two thousand one in it that book the emotional
in everyday life a scientific enquiry where they try to establish the inter connection
between emotional intelligence live success and good medical health high positive affectivity
lower positive affectivity and high self-esteem so they also try to project the overall ah
interactive model of how life events affect human life out of that how it disturbs or
affects our adaptation process and that adaptation process decides the life had to come say for
examples like mental health relationship a work success success at school physical health
but if in during the adaptation process we can nurture emotions intelligence say for
examples life pursing expressing understanding and managing our emotions accurately probably
that may lead to better product of our human health and other work related activities and
in fact since then there are many other research have been carried out in the field of emotional
intelligence like in the earlier class when you are discussing about the impact of life
events where ah we we measure that how negative life events ah ah influences the quality of
human life how daily hassles affect our behavior creating tension stress or both at work and
home and once these emotions are controlled ah by creating or developing better awareness
about how to perceive expression emotions probably that will lead to a better results
a better life outcomes yeah this is one of the ah ah findings taken from baron’s this
was published in the baron’s manual eqi manuals were the baron’s tries to project
the relationship between emotional intelligence and ha coping strategies the overall coping
seems to be very positively related if you look at that task coping emotion coping avoidance
coping but in case of emotion focused coping the eq seems to be negatively related while
the avoidance coping also seems to be negative but as far as task related coping are related
our concern so ei the overall eq found to be very positive
another study also reflects that emotional intelligence and personality how positive
related this is published n journal personal in the year two thousand fourteen so this
study it summarizes that emotional intelligence negatively related to neuroticism so it means
that people those who are high ont their emotions intelligence are likely to manager their anxiety
stress tension ah better ah while emotional intelligence is a positively related to agreeableness
people are very outgoing conscientiousness and openness so these three variables are
positively related to emotional intelligence so this shows that emotional intelligence
positively influence human personality so these are some other findings also published
in a baron’s eq manual that shows that how emotional intelligence is related to self-actualization
a concepts the that often relates towards the optimum achievement of human ah needs
and leisure in this study they try to relate that also emotional intelligence positively
related or positively influence or predict happiness optimism self-regards social responsibility
problem solving ability assertiveness and flexibility this is an overall model where
they tried to see the role of emotional intelligence in performance anxiety and interaction anxiety
okay so ah these are some of the overall scientific studies that they show that how ei is how
important in restring human health and wellbeing when we come back we will try to examine how
the specific ah emotional intelligence abilities are related to different area other areas
of human behavior such as anxiety tension and etc and how these emotional intelligence
abilities are affecting the stress management processes thank you
