As a teacher of Emotional Intelligence, Armand DiMele deserves his shares.
The Positive Mind

Per not being covered by school education, is a bit reminiscence of Damien Dempsey's thought on the subject

Interesting article. Thanks.
First I have to say that empathy is to "put yourself in someone else shoes" The writer failed to address the solution technique therapy in detail. In solving solution technique , the psychologists use measurement from 0 to 10 scale. 10 represent the sunny day that employee didn't have any problem with his/her boss and 0 represent the day the employee and his/her boss on the edge of explosion. The utmost degree of hate between 2 parties.
Now, what we can do to reach number 10 from 0 ? The solution therapy technique meant to solve the problem by encouraging and reinforcing good behavior. The writer implied briefly on that technique, but he failed to go to detail.
Second, As far as "Empathy" concerned, I have to say Gestalt Therapy is the most powerful technique in understanding other person's feeling and emotions.
In this technique, the client use 2 chairs. One represents himself/herself and the other one represents other person. So when the person sit on his/her chair, he/she express his/her view and when he/she sits on the other chair, he/she represent other person's view.
Gestalt therapy use the term of "Top dog" and "under dog" for these 2 chairs. "Top dog" could be parents or anyone in the position of authority. "Underdog" is the client who want to understand other person's view (empathy" . The dialog between top dog and under dog lead to "insight". The client simultaneously change the chairs. When client sits on top dog chair as if the boss or parent is talking. When client sits on underdog chair, the client talks his/her heart out. Talks about his/her own feeling toward parents or bosses. One chair represent the client and the other chair represent other person. The discourse between top dog and underdog gives good understanding of empathy. To understand other person's view. Practicing this technique enable the person to see other people's view. it is very powerful technique that is used in clinical setting in the course of psychotherapy.
Lenin wrote a book in his final years by the name of "The psychology of Mass". This book translated to Farsi in Moscow. The translator had very poor writing skill in Farsi, but we understand the content if we pay close attention. In the book Lenin conceptualized that Mass display dynamic which is way different than individual. I was surprised to see the same concept years later in the work of Max Werteimer's. Almost 16 years after Lenin death, his idea came to the work of Max. Max crystalized Lenin notion of Mass dynamic and said that "The whole is more than some of it's part". To make more clear I have to use the metaphor of drop of water. Each drop of water has different dynamic than ocean. Remember ocean is accumulation of drop of water, but they have different dynamic. Mass display outrages energy which is way more powerful than accumulation of each person's energy. The same as drop of water and accumulation of water in ocean.

How about those consistently psychotics calls for a restoration of SAVAK torture chambers in Iran?
And monarchists' deep remorse felt over why SAVAK wasn't a bit more savage, brutal and should have tortured more effectively!
Would that be part of a Nazi Gestalt/Zeitgeist (bordering on 'collective consciousness' of Jung)?*
Or just 'good' ol fashioned monarchist douche bag, scum cult?

* Theodor Adorno in response to Jung's rather archaic (closet Nazi) notions, posits that collective consciousness occurs only in Earthquakes and catastrophes.

We can conclude that the commentators who receive more admiration, attention on the Iranians sites possess higher degree of emotional intelligence because they're able to see the world from other people's angle. They have higher degree of "Empathy" because they are able to feel what other person is feeling when they make a comment. They're able to make a journey out of themselves and see the world from reader's angle. They're able to put themselves in the shoes of other person (Empathy).
On contrary, people who use profanity or vulgar language have lower degree of "emotional intelligence" because they're NOT cable of seeing world from the side of the readers. They're NOT aware what other peoples' feeling, thinking when they read their profane comments. That is commonly called "Emotional dumbness" or "Callus".

When criminal monarchists take joy in the hardship imposed on Iranian people and other immigrant communities in the US, that is called Sadistic Jubilation.
Monarchist thugs have as much emotional intelligence as Nazi guards of Auschwitz used to have; zero.
And that's another reason why in Iran donkeys, dogs and monkeys are more respected, paid more attention to and have more utility than the demented, crazed criminal monarchist cult.
