Cyber-disinhibition is a term coined by Daniel Goleman, an expert in the field of Emotional Intelligence. Goleman maintains that Internet based communications actually undermine the quality of human interactions by enabling more negative styles of communications, or more accurately, by preventing the neural checks to such behavior. Consequently, because of the growing ubiquity of Internet based communication, Cyber-disinhibition manifests itself regularly in such ways as flame wars, Cyber-bullying, and hostile blog comments. All of which, Goleman maintains, are much more frequent than negative face-to-face interactions.
