Emotional Intelligence And Road Rage (Part 2)

by Doc Orman, M.D.

Road Rage EQ Part 2Six months ago in this blog, I published a series of three blog posts on the topic of road rage.  I’m revisiting those posts again this week because they shed some interesting light on how emotionally intelligent we are, both as individuals and as a society.

Road Rage Is The Absence Of Emotional Intelligence

In the first article on road rage that I linked you back to, Road Rage:  What Causes It?I pointed out that a recent Harris poll of almost 4000 U.S. workers over age 18 showed that 61% of women and 56% of men reported they were prone to feeling road rage.  Even worse, these results showed an increase when compared to similar surveys done in the past.

I also said:

I believe road rage is on the rise today because more and more people are prone to becoming temporarily INSANE!  After all, if you honestly look at road rage, you have to admit that it is little more than a form of temporary mental insanity

Why Don’t We Self-Correct?

In the second post in this series, I explore the question of why we keep engaging in road rage when we have to know, at some level, that it makes very little sense. You can read that full post by clicking on the link below:

Americans are becoming more and more narcissistic….so quite naturally, road rage would increase….it’s that “all about me, me, and only me” attitude that feeds it.
