Describe how emotion is relevant to our sense of belonging. In your discussion, include various emotions such as happiness, anger, and guilt. How does culture play a role in the regulation and expression of our emotions?

2. Describe your understanding of emotional intelligence, and support your thinking with information from your resource(s).

How does emotional intelligence or its components relate to some of the other concepts you have learned from your unit readings over the past four weeks, such as self-regulation, self-esteem, et cetera? What strategies can people use to intentionally develop their emotional intelligence?
