Why harm to our ‘image’ hurts us | Emotional Intelligence & Social Intelligence | Status | Criticism



Dr. Sandeep Atre – Founder, Socialigence (www.socialigence.net) – explains that people are extremely sensitive towards any perceived threat to their status. Video discusses a scenario where a person criticizes his junior in presence of junior’s subordinate, without realizing that each of us thinks about our image, keeps doing its ongoing appraisal, and never takes even a hint of any reduction of status lightly. And this mistake is born out of lack of emotional & social intelligence.

The rationale behind the point is rooted in neuroscience. If we will look at our brain then we will find that when we feel ‘better than’ others, a part in the deeper portion of our brain – Striatum – gets activated, which secretes feel-good chemicals. However, a real or even potential ‘reduction in status’ activates Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC) which usually gets activated during physical pain. So if you criticize junior in front of his subordinate then junior’s brain will generate a threat response. As a result, he will not be able to be receptive or objective towards the feedback. It is important to acknowledge this fact to respond in an emotionally & socially intelligent manner.
