There are certain types of people whose lack of emotional intelligence can hurt their career path. By analyzing them, one can avoid becoming one of them; In addition, surely you will see something identified with the following profiles. Use what you have learned to develop self-awareness, make some changes, and grow as a person.

1. The coward. 

Fear is a very powerful motivator. That's why presidential candidates tell voters that their opponent "will destroy the economy" and there are advertisements that warn that "smoking kills." At work, people who get carried away by fear resort to harmful and irrational behaviors. Cowardly companions are quick to blame others and cover up serious mistakes and do not usually stand up for the right thing.

2. The dementor. 

In the Harry Potter novels, dementors are evil creatures that suck people's souls and leave them as a hollow shell. When a dementor approaches, everything becomes dark and cold and people begin to remember their worst memories. The author of the saga, J. K. Rowling, confessed to having been based on the negative people to develop the concept. The Dementors suck the life of an entire room by imposing their negativity and pessimism on everything that is put before them. They always see the glass half empty and transmit their fear and concern even in the most favorable situations.

3. The arrogant. 

Arrogant people waste your time because they conceive of all the actions of others as a personal challenge against them. Arrogance is the result of trying to appear safe and often masks important insecurities. A study from the University of Akron found that arrogance is related to a lot of workplace problems. Arrogant people tend to perform less, disagree more often, and have more cognitive problems than average.

4. The lamb. 

This type of people choose the path of non-resistance and are famous for propagating the mentality of "this has always been done like this". If you think you are being brainwashed and you are beginning to think the same as everyone else, be careful; The status quo never leads to greatness.

5. The complainer. 

He is the one who soon blames his lack of commitment to the lack of opportunities. Although sometimes they get lucky, people are where they are thanks to the work and the effort. But the complainants do not realize that it is their attitude that limits them, not the circumstances.

6. The moody. 

There are people who have no control over their emotions. They attack and project their feelings on others while they think that others are the cause of their discomfort. Temperamental people do little because emotions cloud judgment and lack of self-control destroy their relationships. Beware of temperamental people; When things get ugly they use others as an emotional toilet.

7. The victimize. 

Victimized people are difficult to identify because at first, it is normal to empathize with their problems. But, over time, one realizes that they always feel needy. Victimized people reject any responsibility and make a mountain out of a grain of sand. These people do not see difficulties as opportunities to learn and grow but as impediments.

8. The naive. 

It is inevitable to feel sorry for the naive. They are those who are watching the boss's children the next morning after a night of overtime ... a Sunday! For some reason, naive people (usually the new ones in the company) try to follow the current until the gentle stream becomes a stormy ocean. Nothing happens to try to negotiate the salary, nothing happens to say no, nothing happens to question the way to do things. Others will respect you much more if you stay true to yourself when the time is right.

9. The one who is always asking for forgiveness. 

For every person who does not apologize, there is another who apologizes too often. People who are not very sure about themselves are always asking for forgiveness for their ideas and actions. They are afraid of failure and believe apologies will serve as a safety net. But unnecessary pardons detract from their ideas and make them less likely to be carried out. It is crucial that tone of voice and body expression reflect the importance of ideas. Expressing an idea or an opinion as if it were a question is just as bad as apologizing. If you think it's worth sharing something, dare and share it with confidence.

In summary

None of these behaviors supposes the absolute labor failure since they can be eradicated by the training of the emotional intelligence. All that is needed is self-consciousness and the desire to change.
