Many people succumb to the misconception that this condition of loved ones is innate and is due to the unlearnable traits that belong to only the lucky few – they are considered to be pleasant in appearance, highly social and incredibly talented. It’s easy to fall prey to this wrong idea. In fact, being loved is something that is under your control and depends on emotional intelligence.
In a UCLA study, participants in the experiment ranked among 500 adjectives in terms of the importance they attach to being likeable. The most chosen adjectives had nothing to do with being sociable, intelligent, or attractive (ie, intrinsic traits). Instead, the most chosen adjectives are sincerity, transparency, and understanding (of another person). These adjectives and others like these describe people who are gifted in the social aspect of emotional intelligence.
