Creative Thinkers and Their Habits
Innovative and Creative thinkers are effected by their emotional intelligence. It is proven that people who are highly creative are continually growing and progressing. They constantly question themselves as well as others.
EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT PEOPLE ARE VERY CONFIDENT BUT THEY HAVE AN OPEN MIND
Emotionally intelligent people realize they are wrong sometimes and that their ideas are not always brilliant. However, they do have the confidence to believe that they can adjust their ideas, perhaps in collaboration with others, in order to create the perfect solution. They don’t see setbacks as permanent failure and are always envisioning ways to position themselves back on top. They see failure as a way to bring any malfunctioning ideas to light so they can ultimately become stronger than before. Most of the great innovative minds failed over and over before finally achieving success. Innovators see failures as temporary and immediately look for ways to rise beyond their position before the setback.
INNOVATORS DON’T HAVE INFLATED EGOS
Emotional intelligent people are open to ideas of others and realize that they are not the only ones with brilliantly innovative concepts. They don’t think their ideas are always the best. With this perspective, they can collect multiple ideas and then select and develop the one that is best.

Good listeners are able to focus not only on the words that are being spoken, but are aware of the tone of the words, the body language expressed, and the emotions behind them. This allows the individual to not only absorb valuable information but develop strong relationships with others. We all want to be truly heard and when we feel that someone is intently and sincerely listening to us, we want to engage with that person.
EMOTIONS DON’T AFFECT CREATIVE PEOPLES INNOVATIONS
Emotionally intelligent people see failure as a process—this takes them one step closer to being their best self.
