Self-regulation means managing impulse as well as distressing feelings. It depends on the working of the emotional centers in tandem with the brain’s executive centers in the prefrontal areas. These two primal skills – handling impulse and dealing with upsets – are at the core of five emotional competencies:

1. Self-control: Managing disruptive emotions and impulses effectively

2. Trustworthiness: Displaying honesty and integrity

3. Conscientiousness: Dependability and responsibility in fulfilling obligations

4. Adaptability: Flexibility in handling change and challenges

5. Innovation: Being open to novel ideas, approaches, and new information
