It is important to realize here that individual emotional intelligence can be developed by investing in increasing self-awareness and self-knowledge, and what is meant by self-knowledge is to delve into some simple questions that many do not fully know the answer to, such as the awareness of feelings and personal patterns and goal setting, knowledge of internal values and motivations, and the knowledge of strength points and weakness points.
