Want to become more emotionally intelligent? Then you need to learn to control your negative emotions.

Even the most mild-mannered among us experience conflict every once in a while, whether it's with co-workers, friends, family, or even strangers. And most of the time, we simply don't have control over what happens, and/or how our peers react.

What we can control is how we react to what happens. Recognizing, acknowledging, and managing our negative emotions effectively is a big part of increasing emotional intelligence. Why? Because it helps us resolve conflict more quickly, calmly, and effectively -- without letting it cloud our judgment or ruin our whole day.

So, how do we calm our brains during conflict? Check out the infographic below from CashNetUSA to learn how conflict and confrontation affects us psychologically, along with helpful tips for keeping your cool and handling these situations rationally and effectively.
