This is not some 101-level renditioning of everything you’ve heard about turning the other cheek, especially when responding in such a way feels unnatural.
It’s OK. That was my first take on E.Q., but that was just the ‘kumbaya’ crowd hijacking another word.
Your idea that ‘something was off’ was likely the biggest clue in the land of the clueless. And you weren’t alone. E.Q. was being manipulated by authors to suit their own promotion.
My biggest fear, watching Justin’s work unfold from an ignorant distance, was time. E.Q. was so trendy! People were casting an ever-widening net to make it include everything they felt was good; and using it to assault anything they felt was bad. This was childish.
But E.Q. is not about trends.
It’s also not about it being wrong to have any one emotion; to experience any burning desire to punch someone in the face; or, in some cases, to even act on it.
Sometimes, a punch in the face in response to a slap is indeed E.Q. I believe that, but it’s probably a bit of a stretch. I have my own nets, and my own elusive Yeti fishes—oh, twee!
E.Q. was the pulpit of every narcissist in business writing two years ago. I took a lot of punches as an author and commenter myself. A year ago, Justin promised it was coming, “it’s coming, it’s coming, Ma.” And it came. The book that would settle scores with the abusers of all things magical within high E.Q. living!
Emergently early on, Justin arrived deus-ex-machina…with a readiness to investigate. What seems humorous now is my handoff at the time. I saw Justin “beat me to the punch” on some E.Q. items, and told him this was “just great. After all, I’m too busy to handle this now.” Yes, you can laugh now.
After combatting poor uses of E.I. terminology, Justin made a series of steps through to taking on real headlines—and examining the emotional angle. Now we’ve all seen this style of click bait, right? No, we haven’t. Because it was never click bait. Instead, Justin drew you in with a defensible—and yes, irresistible—title.
I lovingly left the next chapter in the great epoch of E.Q. all to Justin—and he went ahead and wrote a book. Just kidding about undue credit, but you, Dear Reader, mustn’t leave your own exploration of E.Q. to anyone else. Not even yourself. Justin has it nailed. I write this as the most vocally anti-E.Q. person on the planet. I will also be clear that Justin took every pummeling he could from me on his public E.Q. content back in the day when he was Old Skool (c. 2016), even to watch him go back and change some scientific angles on LinkedIn articles and posts, and even columns. This is pretty cool. It’s not just because I’m notoriously awesome, but because Justin has zero ego; full humility; and absolute cognizance, judiciousness, and execution on healthy principles for healthy life and business outcomes. This is where this book will take you. Justin is the embodiment.
Now, let’s talk about people taking it even further with E.Q. It’s not just blowhard bloggers sucking the life out of this two-digit diamond. It could be your spouse; your boss; you pet; your friendly neighborhood benevolent bon vivant benefactor buddy. People who know emotions can play them, too. This is very, very scary stuff. It goes far beyond your boss or company telling you to read a book that gets you compliant with demands (demands you detest).
Well, I can't say a person who knows emotions well enough to weaponize them is necessarily "un"intelligent emotionally, but there may be a character deficiency there. My main peeve is any surprise that idols might have major flaws. Especially with success that consumes, little time is left to develop personality. Plus the worst critics are always the arm chair set, anyway. In cases where any person is manipulating knowledge of E.Q., Justin's chapter on the sinister side is pretty keen for their defense! We can also learn to spot when corporations are telling employees its high E.Q. to take their nonsense. High E.Q. should never equate to being a sucker, and this debate is solved by this book. Probably the single greatest benefit of this book is its manual format. You will not just be told it's E.I. to turn the other cheek -- and from the same mouth whose hand slapped you. We've all seen those propaganda books, which are written by authors who hope companies will buy them--so you'll be happy your cheese got stolen. You'll learn all the angles and dynamics. This manual helps you know, be mindful of, and be watchful for all elements of E.Q., high and low - and be smart enough not to let rock star strikes leave us blinded to anyone.
So many other striking benefits. I get paid to write. I don’t bother dropping a review unless I have a compliment. Same thing for other review sites. This is the least sycophantic 5-star rating ever, because Justin proved me wrong. He was right … about … absolutely everything.
This book is essential. Put it in your arsenal. I have been disarmed.
If you want a book that presumes what you think of experiences and situations and asserts these onto you (those are not my concerns in those circumstances), gives silly names and titles each of their advice hints, and want to memorize a long list of don'ts --and their specific conditions-- to try to apply without many do's(I would rather have understanding), this is the book for you.
Asking the reader "How do you manage your emotions in these moments?" is not informative or instructional! That's the question I bought the book to answer.
So I have stopped reading at p25.
Maybe after I have mastered emotional intelligence I will return to this book and find an appreciation for it.
Or maybe the obnoxiousness of attributing thoughts and attitudes to me will still outweigh any potential benefit. Either way I will revise my rating at that time. For now, neutral is as generous as I can be.
