The overflow of emotion engenders fear and insecurities, or its juxtaposition, the ego and aggression.
All of which are precipitated by supplying too much emotion to that moment in time.
In the heat of the moment, the overflow switches the intellect off by inhibiting the higher functioning of human achievement, the cortex.
One must become savvy to the overflow of emotion and curb its effects.
Overpromising is emotional overflow.
Here are two examples:
- Over-promising people often leads to feeling regret the following day; on second consideration after the emotion has dispursed, we think: “Why did I agree to do that!?!”
- Overreach our abilities and feel embarrassed.
Again, all of which are precipitated by supplying too much emotion to that moment in time. Its effects your reasoning by powering up the primitive part of the brain, knocking out rational thought by changing the blood flow in key areas of executive control.
Overflow physically causes narrow mindedness.
No matter how valuable the information, in this state of mind the brain cannot process it.

How to become more savvy and curb the overflow.
Realise, most people are open books; they blurt out their feelings at every damn opportunity.
Feelings fuel emotional overflow, and often engenders insecurities and hurt in their target, and in doing so, opens them up for hidden attacks.
Their targets will talk behind their back, and this is what some call karma.
You must be shrewd and act with an enigmatic presence to influence people.
However, being emotionally predictable and transparent as many are, makes it almost impossible for others to find you enigmatic and engender mystery and influence.
Your power lies here: Being on the other persons mind in a positive and enigmatic way; not the target of backstabbing and imputation because you engendered their insecurities.
Being insolently honest with opinion and feelings, you’re more likely to offend and engender all types of insecurities and resentment rather than influence.
You may believe you’re showing good character but, most people prefer to be told what they want to hear.
The wise, however, are emotional apt to handle critique, you must acquire this trait too.
It’s far more shrewd to design your words that cater to their desires yet influencing them to your end goal. You’re leading and aligning others to a greater goal; albeit unknown to them.
Being insolently honest bloodies more egos and feelings than it helps because many people haven’t mastered their primitive emotional reactions, or know how to influence indirectly.
Your power lies in the subtle art of indirect influence; bending people to your will indirectly is power. This skill engenders in you supreme confidence dealing with people.
In that subtle way, your target has no idea you’ve done anything at all. Great leaders use the delicate art of indirect influence.
This keeps the cortex engaged and thinking, rather than precipitating uncontrollable emotion to muddy the mind and lead you astray.
Keeping the overflow of emotion is developed with a two-step framework and mastery of law 1.
