Steve Heinīs Personal Site
April 2012 Note - I had some problems with the EQI site being down so I started to make some backups here. (under construction)
For the past 10 years or so I have been traveling around the world. I have now been to about 60 countries. I believe I have a lot of experience to share with people. I share many of these experiences freely on my main website EQI.org. I have also been doing a lot of volunteer work, particulary with emotionally abused youth. From them I have learned a lot about emotional intellignce and emotional abuse.
On this site I have some of my beliefs and a few other miscellaneous things. I do most of my writing on the EQI site shown above. Besides emotional intelligence (both as I see it and as others are marketing it) and emotional abuse I write about a lot of other things, many of which I wish I had been taught something useful about in school, such as how to listen to someone, and how to express my feelings in a healthier way.
of My Beliefs
To me, the highest goal for all of us is survival. It does not matter what color we are, what gender or what "nationality" we are. We are all to here to work together to increase the chances that the human species will survive.
The best way to do that, I believe, is to help each other, not hurt each other. This is why I am opposed to war and punishment. I do not believe these are the ways to improve human life on earth. Nor do I think they are in line with the general trend of evolution.
I believe the reason people do things which we commonly refer to as sick and criminal is generally a result of their unmet emotional needs.
Instead of the concept of human "rights", I believe it is more accurate and more helpful to think in terms of individual needs. See Human Rights vs Individual Needs
I also believe we are here to solve problems -- problems which interfere with the survival of the species. The more problems we solve as adults the fewer we pass on to children
Some of my beliefs about teenagers
Also - I believe travel is one of the best types of education. I encourage all young people to travel as early in their lives as possible, and as often as possible.
