By interpersonal relationships, we mean the ability to establish and maintain mutually satisfying relationships that are characterized by the ability to both “give” and “take” in relationships, and where trust and compassion are openly expressed in words or by behavior. Positive interpersonal relationship skills are characterized by sensitivity toward others. This component of emotional intelligence is not only associated with the desire to cultivate friendly relations with others but with the ability to feel at ease and comfortable in such relations, and to possess positive expectations concerning social intercourse.
