Hemispheres and Emotions

There are potentially 100 times more connections between the right hemisphere of the brain and the subconscious emotional mammalian or 2nd brain layer. This suggests that individuals whose innate brain bent is in the right hemisphere may be more aware of and in touch with emotion in themselves and in others. This does not necessarily mean that they manage their emotions effectively or that they have high levels of Emotional Intelligence; just that they may be more aware of emotions than those whose innate brain bent is in the left hemisphere. Having said that, any human being with a functional brain may choose to learn about emotions and feelings, know themselves, and build skills related to Emotional Intelligence--because EQ involves a set of “learned skills.”
