Do you have a high EQ necessary for Real Estate?
What follows are sure signs that you have a high EQ needed for your Real Estate Job.
1. You have a robust emotional vocabulary.
All people experience emotions in Real Estate, but it is a select few Real Estate agents who can accurately identify them as they occur. Our research shows that only 36 percent of people can do this, which is problematic because unlabeled emotions often go misunderstood, which leads to irrational choices and counterproductive actions. People with high EQs master their emotions because they understand them, and they use an extensive vocabulary of feelings to do so.
2. You are curious about people.
It doesn't matter if you are introverted or extroverted, emotionally intelligent Real Estate agents are curious about everyone around them. This curiosity is the product of empathy, one of the most significant gateways to a high EQ. The more you care about other people and what theyu2019re going through, the more curiosity you're going to have about them.
3. Real Estate agents embrace change in their jobs.
Emotionally intelligent Real Estate agents are flexible and are constantly adapting in their jobs. They know that fear of change is paralyzing and a major threat to their success and happiness. They look for change that is lurking just around the corner, and they form a plan of action should these changes occur.
4. You know your strengths and weaknesses.
Emotionally intelligent Real Estate agents don't just understand emotions; they know what they're good at and what they're terrible at in their jobs. They also know who pushes their buttons and the environments (both situations and people) that enable them to succeed. Having a high EQ means you know your strengths and you know how to lean into them and use them to your full advantage while keeping your weaknesses from holding you back.
