    You're so welcome. I think he changed the name to Emotions Explained- I didn't realize it until after I posted it.

    i always wondered about those kinds of classes

    i've learned how to detect and react to emotions,
    it is faking though and articificial to a large degree as well as extremely tiring
    and some people pick up on it anyway

    do you need to feel the emotions to be emotionally intelligent?
    or is it just detection and knowing how to react appropriately?

    This course will teach you how to identify your own emotions as well as other people's emotions. I didn't feel there was anything fake about it and keep in mind it is being taught by an Aspie for other Aspie's.

    Sounds great. Sounds like something everyone should learn.

    Just because NTs "react appropriately" doesn't mean their reactions are appropriate.

    Paul is great. Very articulate and intelligent and he has put together a well organized course. I love his videos too. And just because someone is an NT doesn't mean they're perfect by a long shot, at least this one isn't and we also sometimes don't know how to react to others.

    sorry, i didn't want to imply that the course is fake, i was just explaining that i fake emotions, and i was curious if the course actually helped 'experience' the emotions

    It might help you identify the emotions we all experience. Emotions are physiological, feelings are psychological and the course will explain the difference. So everyone has emotions but not all can label their feelings.

    I bought the book "Emotional Intellegience 2.0" which looks like the same thing, but only $20. The book comes with an assessment, which goes over Self Awareness, Self Management, Social Awareness, Social Management. The assessment will give you scores in all 4 areas, it tells you which one to work on first (and by applying the one quadrants, the rest will also increase with score), and then it gives you 3 tactics to work on first. I have been doing this for a month and it is helpful.

    I have to work on Social Management (Relationship Management) first. Tactics are:
    1. Be Open and curious about others. Ask questions about them and their lives. This will help build a relationship, but also helps you understand them and their struggles more for better working relationship and getting projects done effectively.
    2. Don't avoid the inevitable. Instead of shutting down, be prepared to have those tough conversation and be open to understand their side.
    3. Acknowledge the other persons feelings. Instead of wanting to get straight to business, ask them how they are and also try to read their postures and face to see if now if a good time to approach them about work, or be kind and ask about how they are...Offering help to them

    I recommend this book as well

    thanks for clarifying :)

    ah but supposedly i have repressed mine to the point that i am not actively aware of them,
    but they manifest themselves through sleeping and stress issues as well as through psychosomatic pain
