There was once a time when academic qualifications were enough to be a part of and sustain in a social organization. However with changing times, it has become a crucial aspect to realize and understand the social behavior of fellow colleagues when you are eager to sustain in an organization. This is not only the scenario of a workplace but in fact every other social or personal space where you are in constant interaction with pople. It is quite easy to crack and realize spoken words and behavior but what happens when the code of behavior is only a set of reactions? Well, in these situations, it is indeed a difficult challenge.
However during one of my interviewing sessions, I chanced to come across Sandeep Atre, a psychologist who holds in his bag of wisdom the key to all social behavioral solutions. In fact, Socialigence, an online platform strives to reach out to people who are indeed interested to crack and understand every sort of unsaid social behavior.
Before I pen down the details about my one to one interaction with this genius, I would love to enlighten my readers a bit about Sandeep Atre. Apart from being a well-informed, experienced psychologist Mr. Atre is a PHD scholar and is also the founder and Director of Socialigence.
Socialigence is indeed a one of its kind platform that endeavors to provide a complete end to end online tutorial session for amateurs to experienced people helping to understand the several intricate patterns of social behavior. Whether you are a parent, a teacher, a boss, a founder or an employee, Socialigence has the solution for one and all with their curated and researched content and video tutorials. As Mr. Atre confirmed that “All the courses have been designed in a very specific manner and thus can cater to several profiles.”
There are pre-recorded videos on the forum where there would be tutorials on the interpretations of different kinds of behavioral code, for example the movement of hands while speaking or the touch of hands when a person is trying to make a point. A person can have access to all these videos as many times for a year and his understanding and realization of the video shall also be judged on a sample test where an exercise of 10 questions will be provided.
Moreover in case of any sort of interruption or glitch that an user faces during the video, he is free to contact or reach out Socialigence or contact personally Mr. Atre via mail for the clearance of doubts. Well such an interactive platform in the field of social behavioral learning is indeed one of its kind till date.
Coming back to Mr. Sandeep Atre, this had been indeed one of the best of interviews conducted by me. The reason is the in depth informative session that we happened to come across. The interaction undoubtedly established that he is a man of extreme genius when it comes to the judgment of social behavior.
When I asked him that What Interested him to Get Into Socialigence, his answer was simple but enlightening. It was during his Researching, he found Social Intellligence can be broadly intersected into Inter-personal and non-verbal communication. The field of non-verbal communication is indeed huge. For example, Body can show only the emotional state and face shows the exact emotion. In both anger and love, both will look at the person with the same intensity, so it is indeed a difficult task to judge the kind of EMOTIONAL STATE. And Socialigence’s tutorials help you to realize or judge the positive or the negative vibes conveyed by the emotional state. Since “word express thoughts and body express emotions” as conveyed by Mr. Atre, it is in fact a challenging task to interpret the latter one.
When asked about whether Socialigence helps to interpret social media behavior, well yes, Mr. Atre had an answer to that too. As per Mr. Atre there are certain codes of smiles and gestures that are decoded in the tutorials provided by Socialigence.
For example when both the muscles are exercised in a smile, we know the whole smile is a whole-hearted and true one. But when you come across Deuschen smile or a smile where only a single muscle is exercised, it is in fact a fake one. According to Mr. Atre, “When one needs to create a contact, it is only the exchange of factual information. But when one focuses to establish a connect, there is a necessity of exchange of an emotional information”. And thus Socialigence guides you to interpret this emotional information.
The role of Socialigence is also quite crucial for parents of today. Teenagers are children who are glued to social media and often adopt lies and fake stories for justifying themselves, can only be understood and analyzed if they are emotionally comprehensible. And yes, Mr. Atre’s specific designing of courses looks after that too.
Some Notable Achievements of Mr. Atre are:
