The Reading Emotions IQ Matrix explores how to recognize several common human emotions using facial expressions and other nonverbal cues. The emotions we experience within often manifest themselves in how we express ourselves externally. Whether it comes through our facial expressions, hand gestures, body language or physiological responses, every emotional experience brings with it key indicators that can be recognized by others. Understanding how to recognize the emotions of another person in this way will allow you to adapt your communication style and approach to better empathize with others. In this way you can create deeper bonds that will help you gain more influence and respect in other people’s eyes.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Reading Emotions IQ Matrix:
All four branches of the Reading Emotions map breakdown what nonverbal cues we should be looking out for when it comes to recognizing 12 common emotions people typically experience. These emotions include Anxiety, Anger, Disappointment, Envy, Shame, Disgust, Embarrassment, Desire, Fear, Surprise, Boredom, and Relief.
Each emotion people experience brings with it a set of predictable nonverbal cues that manifest through a person’s facial expressions, hand gestures, body language, mannerisms, and through their unconscious physiological responses. This map explores how to spot each of these emotions using nonverbal cues to help you better understand what people are going through. Subsequently you will be able to adapt your approach to better attend to their personal needs. In this way you will gain more influence, respect and favor in their eyes.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your daily interactions with others and you will progressively begin developing deeper levels of understanding of the nonverbal cues that makeup each unique emotional experience. With this understanding in mind you will be better able to empathize with others at profoundly deeper levels and thereby adapt your communication style and approach to better meet their needs.
