Emotional Intelligence

Emotional Intelligence

First, introduce yourself to the class. Include your major ( my major is criminal Justice)  and anything you would like to share about yourself. Then address the prompt below.

We all encounter challenges. Some challenges presented to us are simple to handle, while others can push us far beyond the safety of our comfort zone. Yet for many of us, overcoming challenges can ultimately make us stronger, more resilient, and better capable of managing change, no matter how stressful such changes might be. In dealing with challenges, we are able to develop our personal coping skills and level of grit. Such skills are essential to not just survive, but thrive in the face of adversity.

For this discussion, begin by reviewing the Psychology Undergraduate Discussion Rubric, as it is designed for this program. Later in this module, you will use this rubric to complete a self-assessment of how you think you performed on your first discussion. Review this now to maximize your success.

For your initial post, complete the emotional intelligence test in your webtext. This short survey covers various aspects of your emotional life and takes about 3 to 5 minutes to complete. It is important to be honest while also having fun with this activity. Use your results to answer the following questions:


  • Based on the emotional intelligence test, in what EI domain is your highest score?
  • Do the results reflect your current opinion of yourself, or did the results surprise you?
  • How can emotional intelligence help you overcome life challenges and achieve your goals?
  • How does awareness of your EI score relate to any of the following programmatic themes:
    • Self-care
    • Social justice
    • Emotional intelligence
    • Career connections
    • Ethics

Remember to respond to two peers while being respectful of and sensitive to their viewpoints. Consider advancing the discussion in the following ways:

  • Post an article, video, or visual to reinforce a peer’s idea or challenge them to see their point from a different perspective.
  • Engage in conversation with your peers around EI. Consider asking a question or sharing your personal experience. Also consider asking advice from a peer who has a strength in a domain in which you have opportunity to develop.
