The Social Side of Emotional Intelligence: Bad Habits to Avoid

Recent studies show likability can be traced back to a few social skills such as sincerity, transparency and understanding. According to Travis Bradberry, author of the best-selling book Emotional Intelligence 2.0, people with high emotional intelligence often possess such skills. They also tend to avoid the following bad behaviors, which can make you unlikeable:

  • Humble-bragging and self-deprecation

  • Being too serious or unsociable

  • Not asking enough questions during a conversation

  • Emotional instability, e.g., throwing things, screaming, etc.

  • Using your phone while interacting with people

  • Name-dropping to seem important or interesting

  • Gossiping

  • Being close-minded

  • Over-sharing personal information or problems

“When you build your awareness of how your actions are received by other people, you pave the way to becoming more likable,” wrote Bradberry.
