Emotional Intelligence contains multiple areas that include Knowing one's emotions: self-awareness, Managing emotions, Motivating oneself, Recognizing emotions in others: Empathy, and Handling Relationships. Goldman focuses on the evolution of certain parts of the brain that regulate emotional and rational behavior, how these parts can and have been mismatched in our modern life from their main use by our ancestors as an early warning system against dangers and the growing importance of finding a balance between emotion and rational thought in ourselves and how we interact with each other.
