I found this might interest some colleagues.

"Manage your 'self talk'

Most of us think primarily with a combination of mental images and inner chatter - and get our feelings or emotions from this mental activity. (This is not the only source of our feelings but it's enough to start with.)

Become aware of your thoughts and begin managing them and you will be directly influencing your emotions."

is that emotionality does help in getting knowledge, and therefore self-knowledge as well.
Once we can positively cope with our emotionality, our rational side is no more hampered by what we usually consider such a "negative" feature of our "being human beings"!
Very stimulating questions...thanks again!
