Commentary On Dictionary Definitions
A dictionary definition for empathy is the, "identification with and understanding of another's situation, feelings and motives."
It's important for us to understand the
situations and the limitations that others find themselves. Those who are born in poverty,
those who are born in a situation that doesn't offer the opportunity of education -
requires us to take into consideration their situation. How it makes them feel. And how it
makes them behave.
Commentary On Claude Steiner #2
Each emotion is different. It has a different
use. It has a different source. It has a different feeling. It's accompanied by different
kinds of thoughts. Different emotions produce different kinds of behaviors. And Claude
Steiner is making us aware that we can differentiate the texture and flavor of our
Commentary On Susie Orbach #2
Emotional Literacy is a cultural enhancement achieved through education. In which we are not only expanding the capacities of our emotions, but also we are expanding the capacity of our intellect.
We are giving ourselves more choices in our
behaviors' to others in our relationships. And we are learning how better to fulfill our
own needs, thereby bringing more satisfaction into our lives.
Commentary On Peter Sharp
I like this particular statement by Peter Sharp,
because it defines Emotional Literacy in the context of relationships. Which he describes
in education as the fourth 'R'. In our schools children are put together in a classroom,
and they are taught how to read, write and do arithmetic. But they're not taught how to
interact with one another. Even though we put them in the same room together, and we force
them to interact with one another, yet we give them no guidance.
Commentary On Asuman Martone
Of all the definitions of Emotional Literacy,
this one has the most profound implications. The statement that, "Emotional Literacy
is the recognition and consequent development of skills and abilities," is a very
clear picture of what Emotional Literacy is. Because it's the development of skills which
help us as human beings to fulfill our needs. And it's only through need fulfillment, that
we achieve satisfaction in our lives. So Emotional Literacy is the development of skills,
that help us fulfill our needs and achieve satisfaction.
Commentary On Paula Cole
"I am climbing a ladder of urgency.
"Climbing a ladder of hope.
"Climbing a ladder of my emotions.
"Climbing a ladder of unraveling rope."
Understanding our emotions: being able to
identify them; being able to recognize them; being able to categorize them into function;
and what they do for us; and how they are used; and how they affect others, and what they
mean to us, is like climbing a ladder of emotional development.
Commentary On Mark Zimmerman
There I wrote, "Emotional Literacy Education is the refinement of a knowledge base that has been around for thousands of years. It has been the focus of religion, philosophy, science and psychology. It is Self-Knowledge which has been formulated into a language of emotions which can be taught."
For Emotional Literacy to progress, it needs one
more component to its definition. That component is education. Education in the tradition
of an educational system.
