From Emotional Intelligence to Systems Intelligence

Emotional intelligence helps us to understand and manage our own emotions as well as other people’s emotions towards us. Social intelligence, on the other hand, concentrates on social situations like how we interact with other people and how well we understand them. And then there is systems intelligence. Systems intelligence considers that human action always takes place in systemic settings consisting of both human and other kind of elements. Systems intelligent people understand why they act like they do – they understand their emotions. Systems intelligent people also understand social interaction connections. This is why people should, above all, focus on making themselves more systems intelligent. In this article, I will first discuss how evolution has created our emotional intelligence and how it is useful in our everyday life. From emotional intelligence, we step towards social intelligence and ponder the behavioral laws in social interaction situations. Finally, I will end describing systems intelligence and how it includes both emotional intelligence and social intelligence in it and how its fundamental form will raise our intelligence onto a new level.
