Think of the attributes of your ideal business leader and moody almost certainly isn’t among them. Generally we want the captain of the ship to be steady, clear eyed and largely predictable, not the sort of person who lets the whims of the moment or personal concerns color her decision making or interactions with others.
This can work against the thin skinned among us, and particularly against women who are (fairly or unfairly) often perceived as more emotional, and therefore sometimes passed over as less than leadership material. But according to some psychiatrist the conventional wisdom when it comes to moodiness is all wrong–hair trigger emotions are a valuable trait not a cause for snide office complaints or vaguely sexist insults.
We think of moody people as those that often have strong feelings without good cause, but researchers say that there is a fundamental flaw with this understanding. Moody people generally get moody for a reason; in other words they’re just more sensitive to small stimuli than others.Being moody means you’re tuned in to your feelings, or in other words, you have great intuition. The idea of why being moody can be good for you really and has to do with taking advantage of one of the biggest strengths and assets that women have, which is this intuition. Knowing that something is wrong, feeling that something is wrong, and then optimally speaking up about it The key is not repressing your feelings, but listening to your gut and identifying and rectifying what’s triggering them.
If you find your emotions are simply a little faster to kindle than those around you, stop feeling like that’s something to be ashamed of. If you learn to listen to those moods and channel them into appropriate communication, your sensitivity could very well become one of your biggest strengths. So next time if you get moody, nothing to worry just be yourself and feel the difference. The confidence will make you the queen of your emotions.
