Each of us is different. An individual’s emotional makeup varies from person to person. Accordingly, a personal assessment can help you understand your highest potential for emotional maturity and identify areas of psychological vulnerability.

Ask yourself:

  1. What emotional strengths do I sense and/or demonstrate? 
  2. What emotional weaknesses do I sense and/or demonstrate? 
  3. When am I at my best emotionally?
  4. When am I at my worst emotionally?

With an honest assessment in hand, consider how best to use the remaining best practices to grow and sustain your emotional maturity, and thus maintain your emotional margin in order to minimize embarrassing behaviors and/or avoid destructive personal events.
