Have you ever been told, “stop being so emotional”? Yea, we feel that way when we hear it too. Did you know that the ability to be empathetic and in touch with one’s emotions is a sign of high emotional intelligence? A Harvard study found that women are more likely than men to show empathy as a strength, demonstrate strong ability in conflict management, show skills in influence and have a sense of self-awareness.
