I found myself talking about the past a ton today as I described some deja vu moments. I love the inner workings of the brain because the limbic system allows us to learn from our past by remembering the moments. I've talked about Emotional Intelligence and the limbic system in many forums. Bottomline, EQ means everything to you as you get older and presumably wiser. I like to presume an increase in wisdom, but truthfully wisdom comes with practice and that's where EQ comes into play.
