OVERVIEW

SELF-AWARENESS

Self-Awareness is the ability to be aware of our emotions.

EMOTIONAL AWARENESS

Emotional Awareness is the ability to recognize our emotions, differentiate among different ones, and understand the impact of emotions. Other people might understand and experience emotions differently than you do. Also, you might trigger emotions in others, so being sensitive to this possibility will help you communicate more effectively.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate you are highly tuned to your emotions. You are aware of and can recognize and identify the emotion you are experiencing. You understand that one can experience a range of emotions. You can also understand why you feel a particular emotion at a given time. You are also aware of your reactions to these emotions and understand that thoughts drive your feelings. You can use your understanding of your emotions to guide your actions. Your awareness of your emotions helps you connect with your feelings when interacting with others in personal and professional relationships. For example, you can use your emotional awareness to guide your decisions and interactions with friends, family, colleagues, or acquaintances. In addition, this awareness helps you predict your reactions to people or situations, which may help you respond more effectively or remove yourself from situations you are not ready to handle in personal and social settings or at Work

SELF-MANAGEMENT

Self-Management is your ability to manage your emotions effectively. 

EMOTIONAL SELF-CONTROL

Emotional Self-control is the ability to keep emotions under control. Other people might be influenced by emotions more or less than you. Understanding other individuals' levels of self-control can help you communicate with them more effectively. 

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that you are highly in control of your emotions. You can quickly realize when emotions start taking control, and you can effectively manage them. You can keep a check on your reactions and behavior even during stressful times, and you find ways to calm yourself. You can also focus on the thoughts running through your mind and change the negative thoughts to positive ones to handle emotionally charged situations. Finally, you can identify the reason behind your emotions, which helps you control them effectively. Your ability to control emotions can help you objectively understand people and their perspectives — especially during an emotionally charged or personal crisis. Your ability to control emotions can also help you at work. You can be objective about understanding others' perspectives and make appropriate decisions. Awareness that emotions impact behavior helps you hold back to reevaluate situations and say the right things during an argument with a colleague, friend, or loved one. For example, you can quickly cool off from a heated argument and value the person and the relationship, which helps you stay objective and bias-free. Your self-control will help you engage in constructive discussions, find compromises and consensus, to make good decisions.

Achievement Orientation is our desire to meet or exceed a standard of excellence. Other people might seek achievement more or less than you, and understanding other individuals' achievement orientation will help you better understand how they manage themselves.

YOUR PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Your responses indicate that challenges and goals sometimes drive you. You may not always be sure of yourself. You may or may not believe in yourself — your ability to meet and achieve the goals, depending on the situation or goal. You are self-motivated and may take on new challenges once you reach a goal. However, you usually aim at achieving the set goal and may not go beyond that. Your drive to achieve goals and conquer challenges may not directly impact relationships. You are sometimes driven to achieve, which can help you at work. You sometimes set challenging goals and want to do better. Your degree of achievement orientation can bring success, satisfaction, and recognition.
