Emotional Intellignce

We all know about IQ. It helps us to take effective decisions in most of the situations. As you all know our logical thinking helps us in problem-solving. But only logical thinking is important for problem-solving?

The answer is “No”. Emotions are also needed. For example, think that you are in a situation where you need to help two people at the same time. One is a stranger and the other one is your best friend. Whom do you choose first? As we all do priority goes to your friend. That is because of your love for him or her. That is the power of emotions. So, problem-solving depends on both your logical thinking as well as emotional intelligence.

What is Emotional Intelligence?

It is the ability to identify and manage emotions. It consists of three skills. emotional awareness; the ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks like thinking and problem solving; and the ability to manage emotions, which includes regulating your own emotions and cheering up or calming down other people. The amygdala in the brain is responsible for emotions.

What is Amygdala?

It is an almond-shaped set of neurons located deep in the brain’s medial temporal lobe. It is responsible for the response and memory of emotions.

The EQ level of a person indicates his / her ability to understand other’s emotions, take effective decisions and keep a good social life. The EQ level can be controlled by reducing negative attitudes and gaining positive attitudes. You need to control your temper before taking any decisions. Even I cannot do that in some situations. But you need to reduce it for a better solution. Be with people who raise your positive mindset. It develops your self-motivation too.


Paranormal Technology

Do you believe in ghosts?

The world believes in spirits that survive death to live in another realm. It is a part of paranormal beliefs based on near-death experiences, life after death, and spirit communication. People have attempted to communicate with spirits. These kinds of beliefs give comfort to some people as they believe that paranormal activities protect them. As this is an interesting area, people tried their best to widen their research on this area. For example, there were Ghost clubs dedicated to searching for ghostly evidence formed at prestigious universities, including Cambridge and Oxford. Then ghost hunting became a widespread interest. All you need is some free time, a dark place, and few gadgets to detect ghosts.

Science vs paranormal phenomenon

Most of the experiences are based on the conventional image of a ‘ghost’. It becomes a common factor in most of the experiences. Scientific explanations are different from personal experiences. But there are many contradictions about ghosts and their paranormal activities.

Are they transparent?
Can they move through objects?
Can they control people’s behavior according to their preferences?
Are they human souls?

Recently ghost hunters use high-tech scientific equipment such as Geiger counters, Electromagnetic Field detectors, ion detectors, IR cameras, and sensitive microphones, to detect the presence of spirits. But some criticize the presence of spirits because we don’t have an accurate method to detect them because they don’t appear in the ordinary physical world. The recent development of “Ghost apps” for smartphones makes unnecessary problems regarding this. 

So, what is the truth?

Many people believe in the existence of ghosts based on personal experiences. Albert Einstein explained a scientific basis for the reality of ghosts based on the First Law of thermodynamics. The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system is constant; energy can be transformed from one form to another but can be neither created nor destroyed. According to this, after a person dies, the energy in his or her body goes where all organisms’ energy goes after death: into the environment. The energy is released in the form of heat, and the body is transferred into the animals that eat us and the plants that absorb us. In the end, the evidence about ghosts can be explained by misconceptions and psychology. Still, the answer is not clear to the question “Are ghosts real?”
