Specifically he apologizes to his classmate Andy and says “sorry” repeatedly, hugging Andy closely. It is clear from Peter’s behavior that he is remorseful, which shows that Peter is definitely demonstrating emotional intelligence in this moment(Wurzburg and Goodwin, 1992). Additionally, Peter shows nonverbal emotional intelligence on the last day of school, when his emotional attachment to his friends is visible through his tight embrace of his friends. This shows emotional intelligence because Peter knows that he’s going to miss his friends, and has learned to manage his emotions in a non aggressively; unlike initially, when he would strike out furiously when he knew that he was going to leave his friends and would miss them (Wurzburg and Goodwin, 1992).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
