Music and its role in emotional intelligence

The development of emotional intelligence is connected with various aspects of our child development and also with various actions of our daily lives. If you notice, all the structures of marketing and actions of online stores, conventional retail or even solidarity campaigns have a deep anchor in the emotional response of consumers or users.In fact, human beings depend a lot on their emotions, and most of the time these emotions take control in their daily choices, decisions and actions. Even if you simply enjoy listening to music and don't realize it, your musical choices are also emotional. That's why there are those who prefer classical music and those who feel connected to less conventional alternatives.

The music triggers, therefore, very emotional reactions in us and the contact with it is also influential of our perception of the world, stimulating the emotional intelligence. Know what emotional intelligence is and how music promotes this type of intelligence.

What is emotional intelligence?

Emotional intelligence can be defined as the ability to manage our emotions and the ability to use them positively, to generate empathy towards the emotions of others, with the ability to understand them and to make choices that promote a better quality of life for all.When you develop this type of intelligence, you can act in a more thoughtful way, using emotions and knowledge simultaneously.This type of intelligence allows you to recognise your own emotions and the emotions of others, to adopt a posture of self-responsibility, and also to be able to focus on more positive aspects of people and daily life, guiding your action towards more positive attitudes.

What is the role of music in this process?

Music can play a very important role in the construction of emotional intelligence, since its characteristics - including rhythm, melody and harmony - generate emotional reactions in the human being, with direct expression in his body and his ability to communicate. Researches related to the action of music in the human being reveal that it affects the body, increasing its metabolic response and muscle energy, while promoting changes in aspects such as blood pressure and pulse. It also alters the perception of other stimuli, generating new forms of personal experience for each person.

Depending on the music, it can contribute to generate emotions as diverse as relaxation and tranquility, freeing the listener from situations of anxiety and depression, helping to treat nervousness and even situations of insomnia. Other types of music can be stimulating and motivate a person's entrepreneurship, productivity, memory and energy. Thus, as research shows, music has a very important role in human development, including their emotional intelligence.
