The Emotional Perception of Art - The Emotional Perception of Art Art has a rare capability of evoking different emotions in different people. Two people can look at the same piece of art and see two images that are entirely dissimilar. What one perceives while looking at art depends on a person’s state of mind. If one is happy, he or she will find something cheerful and pleasing in the work of art. However, if one is depressed or going through a hard time, it will be as if they are looking at two paintings or two sculptures that are totally unalike....   [tags: Art Artwork Emotion]

Emotional intelligence: The rapprochement of reason and emotion - The past few decades have seen increasing interest in emotion research. Although much remains to be learned, agreement is beginning to emerge regarding the way emotion should be viewed. Emotions provide a unique source of information for individuals about their environment, which informs and shapes their thoughts, actions, and subsequent feelings, and there is a growing view that emotion information can be used more or less intelligently. A notion central to emotional intelligence theory is that individuals differ in their ability to perceive, understand and use emotional information, and this ability significantly contributes to intellectual and emotional well-being and growth....   [tags: essays research papers fc] 5508 words

Is Emotional Intelligence Beneficial for Effective Leadership? - ... Dylan Evans, the founder and CEO of Projection Point, went as far as to say that Goleman's definition of emotional intelligence "sounds great, obviously is a great marketing tool" but he doesn't believe that it has anything to actually do with intelligence (Evans, 2011). Still others believe that Emotional Intelligence is just a repackaging of other well established psychological concepts. Edwin Locke from the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland argues "that the concept of emotional intelligence (EI) is invalid both because it is not a form of intelligence and because it is defined so broadly and inclusively that it has no intelligible meaning (Locke, 2005)." When it specifically comes to how EI relates to leadership, Locke noted the list of characteristics used to describe EI in leaders is long and encompassing, yet one characteristic is missing - actual intelligence....   [tags: Leadership ]

Emotional Appeal Used in Visual Advertising - In almost any commercial you watch today, you will notice that they rarely tell you something about the product being sold. Neil Postman stated, “The television commercial is not all about the character of the product to be consumed. It’s about the character of the consumers of products” (128). I find this very true. Commercials combine the use of sight, sound, color, motion, and often humor to put forth an effective message. Within a short period of time, these advertisements can capture one’s attention and convince one to buy their product....   [tags: essays research papers fc]
