Emotional Intelligence and Age

Does Emotional Intelligence increase or decrease when we grow older? Or is age irrelevant?

  Naraynan Sethurao

EI and age

Age is irrelevant.


EI and Age

Age is very relevant. Most of us learn with age (and experience)--more about ourselves as well as about others. We make observations about interpersonal behaviors and the impact they have, and use those observations to guide our future behaviors.


EI and Age

Age is most certainly relevant. If you don't understand yourself you cannot understand others. Self understanding/awareness is achieved through experience accumulated as we age!


Age matters, but up to a certain level and age

Age has its relevancy up to certain level. Afterwards, the likes and dislikes of the person affect the interpersonal skills. Attitude plays a pivotal role for EI. The degree of perception makes people more aware rather than their age. At a certain point of time, the age factor looses its importance in EI. The most important thing how we perceive the things, what is our way to look at all the happening around. Our interest towards correcting and amending the wrong one. At last but not least, what value system we have?
