032 Why is it important to make good decisions in politics?

In this and the next 2 episodes we are looking closer into the role emotional intelligence plays in politics.

I am answering the most common 10 questions people are not asking us, but should and the question I am answering today is:

 

Why is it important to make good and sound decisions in politics and how can EQ help me with that?

 

Before I answer today’s question, I want to share today’s quote which is from Plato and it goes like this:

In order to become the master, the politician poses as the servant.

Charles de Gaulle

Emotions are intelligent. Emotions are what make us human. Emotions tell us what is valuable and important to us and to others. They signal the meaning of events.

Emotions are just as “cognitive” as other perceptions. They serve as essential guides for humans to make rational choices. Emotions are a form of thinking as well as a form of feeling.

All thinking is infused with the intelligence of emotions. Without the guidance of emotions, one becomes irrational, detached from reality.

We now have conclusive biological evidence that decision-making is neurologically impossible without being informed by emotions.

Contrary to the classical model, decision-making is arbitrary when it is not infused with the intelligence of emotions.
