It would if the user had the wisdom to know how to use it to enhance
his/hers emotional intelligence. For instance if your mind is blinded by
anger or hurt you could "lower the volume" to try to see things more
clearly. And if you were feeling down in the dumps and unmotivated for a
task you could "raise the volume. But it would take some emotional
intelligence to use this enhancement properly.
