I also included one of Goleman’s older categories called motivation. He believes that mastery in these different areas can help make a leader more effective and that having emotional intelligence may be just as important as having a high IQ (Goleman 1995; Goleman, 2000). One of the main differences between the Ability and the Mix model is that the Ability model had a focus on oneself while the Mix model shows how a person can have an effect on others. The Trait model differs from the Mixed Model, the same way it does the Ability model
Firstly, self-awareness is referring to a person who have a clear cognizance of their personality, including thoughts, motivation, beliefs, weaknesses, strengths and emotions, further this skill allows people to make a better decision (Path way of happiness, 2016). Next, managing emotion, in other word, self-management: handling suffering emotional in an effectual way, moreover knowing how to lead yourself to positive emotions and not falling to negative thought. Furthermore, thirdly, empathy is a significant aspect of emotional intelligence. Following to the research from Cherniss (2000) discovered that most successful people in the workplace and social life having a capability to identify other’s emotions. Lastly, skill-relationship, which is all those three combined together and use it in efficiently way.
It allows one to be self aware, improving the ability to process information about oneself accurately (Goleman, 2008). Emotional intelligence also affects management of mood in that it enhances one’s ability to manage emotions, create moods of positivity, and defuse bad moods. Emotional intelligence also comes in handy with regards to motivation of self. It increases an individual’s ability to overcome frustration, the ability to be persistent, ability to engage in tasks that are boring, but necessary, and to be involved in and cut out productive and non-productive actions respectively.
In the case where attention is withdrawn, we tend to refer back to highly practiced traits available in the given moment. This study provides further evidence that affective distractors can be mediated with attentional change in inducing desirable response. Furthermore, distractors can lead to more superficial forms of social perception. They concluded attention may have a more significant role than emotion, such as threat, in moderating perceptions of the self. They further stated that self-presentation under emotional arousal is short lived, once attention is fully recovered, a more controlled cognitive processes takes over, and the heightened tendency to represent the self in positive light diminishes.
The use of EI was based on the belief that emotionally intelligent people regard their own emotions and the emotions of others as a basis in framing their relationships with other people (Mayer and Salovey, 1993, 1997). This quality can create a sensitive feeling that encourages individuals to consider other interests while resolving conflicts . In this situation, a win-win solution may become a priority in resolving the conflicts among individuals in order to satisfy everyone’s interests. (Mayer et al., 1999; Schutte et al., 2001) One of the most controversial concepts introduced in popular and academic psychology and management in the last decade is Emotional Intelligence (EI; Mayer, Salovey & Caruso, 2000. This paper investigates two important issues related to EI.

For an individual to improve on any ability, he or she would need realistic feedback concerning their baseline abilities and progress. Providing valid and reliable feedback on specific emotional and social competence helps to provide individuals with insight into their strengths and areas for development. Providing a more balanced view and a supportive environment can help to overcome feelings of defensiveness that often undermine the development of emotional and social competencies. Emmerling and Goleman inquire as to whether or not EI is morally neutral of or if it interacts with an ethical dimension.
The egoistic, self-interested range indicates behavior dominated by our self-preservation circuitry. Behavior in this range is self-centered or self-interested. As the two behavioral programs are inter-locked in an inseparable unity, Empathy is present here at a lesser degree. Ego behavior may tend to be dominating, power-seeking, or attacking when Empathy is less, but it will become softened and more moderately with the increasing of Empathy -- it may be described as controlling, competitive, or assertive. The characteristic of this range is defined as self-over-others.
There is an ongoing discussion of whether empathy is cognitive or affective. Cognitive empathy is associated with understanding another's emotional state, while affecting empathy is the ability to share this state (Eisenberg and Strayer, 1987). More recent definitions hold the view that empathy is a combination of both components (Mehrabian and Eipstein,1972; Daly and Morton,2003; Alterman et al 2003). Therefore, empathy can be defined as the process of accurately recognizing, comprehending and sharing another person's feelings ( Decety, 2011). Individuals with higher levels of empathy are responsible of the consequences of their actions toward others so it is less likely to hurt other people and more likely to help them (McPhedran, 2009).
Understanding Human Behavior The emotional intelligence theory has been attributed to a greater understanding of human behavior and the benefits that come with it.

Developed by Mayer and Salovey, the ability theory views emotional intelligence as a skill; recognizing it as the capacity to recognize, reason, and problem solve with emotions and to allow the emotions to enhance thinking (Mayer and Salovey, 1990). The model also proposes that individuals vary in their abilities of processing emotional information and that emotions are connected to cognitions. Based on this theory, individuals are able to further develop and refine these skills using the four branches of ability, promoting both emotional and intellectual growth (Akerjordet and Severinsson, 2007). By understanding ability theory, individuals are able to improve their emotional processing and recognition needed for high emotional intelligence
