See Travis Bradberry and Jean Greaves, Emotional Intelligence 2.0 (San Diego, CA: TalentSmart, 2009), 16. The primary difference between EI and self-awareness concepts is emotional intelligence focuses primarily on emotions and behavior, two important components of self-awareness. However, selfawareness goes beyond emotional intelligence to include values, motives, cognition, and abilities. Self-awareness has a broad scope of elements infusing to define the inner man. Emotional intelligence focuses on a remarkably relevant segment of the inner man, specifically, how one relates to others through emotion and behavior. 5 Diane Dirette, “Self-Awareness Enhancement through Learning and Function (SELF): A Theoretically Based Guideline for Practice,” British Journal of Occupational Therapy 73, no. 7 (2010): 310. 6 Anthony R.
