Social Awareness

.. means having an in-depth understanding of societal setups, communities, environments, norms, and cultures.

Human beings are social creatures, but many lack proper social awareness. In any professional or personal situation, one’s success and wellbeing largely depend on how other people are communicated with, how social interactions are managed and how efficiently one interacts with society. Social Awareness is often equated with Emotional Intelligence(EQ).

  • Sense people's inner conflicts and pain.
  • Excel in communication and problem solving by being able to feel the vibe of a group of people.

Life is short. Practice quick forgiveness and move on. Holding a grudge will only slow you down. 

Forgiving others frees your mind and makes it agile, not easily triggered by current situations that point towards any painful memories of the past.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum
