Smart Use of Unpleasant Emotions
Higher EI correlated with preferring useful emotions, e.g., anger when pursuing confrontatinn or happiness when pursuing a collaboration.
Wanting to feel good at all times may not be optimal. Seeking unpleasant emotions or avoiding pleasant emotions may, in the right context, be emotionally intelligent.

Connecting with the Dots - Learning - Source: An OpenNews project
From a distance, it’s easy to forget the dots are people. That’s the dark lesson of the movie and also of course the war that wrecked all of Europe. But what does this have to do with journalism? After all, unlike the villain in this film, we are not amoral monsters. I’ll answer that by telling a story of my own. When the New York Times reported the Wikileaks war logs, it seemed like we finally had a chance to better map and quantify the massive sectarian cleansing that swept across Baghdad in the wake of US occupation....

Ultimately, I think the graphic produced by the Times did an excellent job of reminding readers about the human costs of the violence. By making the focus of the chart a single day of violence, we could cross-check the data and provide some context for where the worst violence occurred. It also served to anchor the swelling violence shown in the smaller annual charts below into a neighborhood context. In a similar vein, the Guardian produced their own visualization of the violence that humanized the data by profiling in detail the violence of a single day....

As data journalists, we often prefer the “20,000 foot view,” placing points on a map or trends on a chart. And so we often grapple with the problems such a perspective creates for us and our readers—and from a distance, it’s easy to forget the dots are people. If I lose sight of that while I am making the map, how can I expect my readers to see it in the final product?

All of this has made me wonder what other approaches people have used to anchor their graphics in empathy. I investigated a few techniques that data journalists have used to connect readers with the dots. These aren’t just specific to tragedies like war and disaster, they’re important for any datasets we are using to report data about from people or that affects people (i.e., pretty much every dataset)....

These graphics illustrate a common and successful technique for bringing the reader back down to earth by focusing on a smaller range of data. Scott Klein of ProPublica took inspiration from Sesame Street and declared that many of the best news applications contain both the near and the far. For instance, a look at school test scores should both show system-wide trends and let readers look at how their local schools are doing. Or, in the case of Baghdad’s dead, we focused on a single day to show the near of what years of violence looked like day after day.

The Elusive Index of Relationships Between Everyone
Organized into eight chapters, Bass’s solo exhibition at Knockdown Center, The Book of Everyday Instruction, is organized by Alexis Wilkinson and it reveals a great deal of the artist’s process. It comes across as a caring display of projects that remain human-scaled and accessible, even if they’re laced with the often-cool conceptual language of contemporary art. The show’s unique, book-like format, started as a joke, Bass recently explained to Jillian Steinhauer in an interview published by Temporary Art Review:

I work really slowly, and there’s this weird misperception that I work fast. So I thought, when I was conceiving of this project: What if I say I’m doing a book, when people were like, “what are you doing next”? If I’d say, “I’m working on a book,” people would just leave me alone, because we have this framework where a book takes a really long time to produce....

Chapter one, which is titled “you+me together,” documents 16 interactions with people who invited her to be a proxy for people who would normally enact the actions with a partner. Created during a residency at Spaces in Cleveland, Bass walked into scenarios where she was required to share a bottle of wine, walk a dog, and go to a movie with people who were initially strangers she encountered through her professional network or a Craigslist posting. The work in the gallery is archival, incorporating the residue of these events, including photos of significant components of the interaction. The display presents the whole process in a manicured way that suggests a homey respite — like walking into a well-designed Airbnb apartment, knowing it was prepared for your arrival.
