Directions (Q.1–9): Read the passage given below and answer the following questions by selecting the most appropriate option.
1. Some researchers suggest that emotional intelligence can be learned and strengthened, while others claim it is an inborn characteristic. The purpose of developing our emotional literacy is to precisely identify and communicate our feelings. When we do this, we are helping nature fulfil its design for our feelings. We must know how we feel in order to be able to fill our emotional needs. And we must communicate our feelings in order to get the emotional support we need from others, as well as to show our emotional support and understanding to them.
2. Also, one of the first steps to develop our emotional intelligence is to improve our emotional literacy. In other words, to improve our ability to identify our feelings by their specific names-and the more specific we can be, the better. In the English language, we have thousands of words that describe and identify our emotions; we just don’t use many of them. If you are interested in working on your emotional literacy, the first step is to start using simple, three-word sentences such as these: I feel sad. I feel motivated. I feel offended. I feel appreciated. I feel hurt. I feel disrespected. When we talk about our feelings using three-word sentences, we are sending what have been called “I messages”. On the other hand, when we say things like “You make me so jealous”, we are sending a “you message”. These “you messages” typically put the other person on the defensive, which hurts communication and relationships rather than helping.
