What Is Emotional Intelligence?
The emotional centers of the brain are centered in the Amygdala. It acts independently of thoughts and is the repository for emotional impressions and memories. How we feel about that memory determines if we will store it. Emotional memories begin at birth and account for many or our reactions especially those for which we can not account.

The Emotional Brain is where all our memories are stored including nonverbal ones.
A little known fact is that I.Q. contributes about 20% to the factors that determine life. Ultimate
success in life is 80% non I.Q.
