Event description

Description

Speaker: Professor Konstantin Petrides, Professor of Psychology and Psychometrics, UCL and Founding Director, London Psychometric Laboratory

Behind every action and decision, as analysis shows, there is always an emotional driver. This explains why emotions are involved in all areas of our everyday lives. It also explains why the theory of trait emotional intelligence (trait EI) has received so much attention in so many different fields of research and application.

In this talk, Konstantin Petrides will briefly introduce trait EI theory and discuss the use and application of the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue), which has become one of the most widely used psychological assessments in research and practice around the world. The key aims of trait EI theory are explained in relation to the human being as an individual, with particular emphasis on the need to develop self-awareness.

The theory posits that the development of self-awareness is necessary for the attainment of self-knowledge as originally envisaged in the ancient Greek adage Know Thyself (γνῶθι σεαυτόν). True self-knowledge is essential for the achievement of success in any and all areas of life, but first and foremost, for inner (psychological) success on which all external endeavors must be firmly based.

In the last part of the talk, I clarify the nature of success and discuss four major barriers to it. Within this context, I also address the cardinal importance of perceptions, especially self-perceptions, and their relationship to what we (subjectively) understand as ‘reality’.
