Whatever goes wrong, they take the blame and and try to find solutions immediately rather than apportioning blames on others because definitely they do not like making other people feel bad. They also know that their complaints influence the emotional responses of those around them, and instead will find that trusted family member and share their griefs with when it becomes necessary.

They are self-sufficient in all manners of life, including their contentment and peace of mind. They engage in movies and find hobbies that would make them smile and laugh all times.

They don’t dwell on the past

According to lifehack.com, emotionally intelligent people honor their past, the people they have loved, the mistakes they have made, the opportunities they’ve eschewed  but are mindful of the importance of living squarely in the here and now.
