Emotional Intelligence

Updated 03/09/2017

 Emotional intelligence (EI) or emotional
 quotient
 (EQ) is the capability of
 individuals to recognize their own, and
 other people's emotions, to discriminate
 between different feelings and label them
 appropriately, to use emotional
 information to guide thinking and
 behavior, and to manage and/or adjust
 emotions to adapt environments or
 achieve one's goal(s).  Some dispute it, some advocate it.  
Consider it for yourself.

  Studies have shown that people with high EI have greater mental health, job
  performance, and leadership skills although no causal relationships have been shown
  and such findings are likely to be attributable to general intelligence and specific
  personality traits rather than emotional intelligence as a construct. For example,
  Goleman indicated that EI accounted for 67% of the abilities deemed necessary for
  superior performance in leaders, and mattered twice as much as technical expertise or
  IQ.  Other research finds that the effect of EI on leadership and managerial
  performance is non-significant when ability and personality are controlled for,[6] and
  that general intelligence correlates very closely with leadership.[7] Markers of EI and
  methods of developing it have become more widely coveted in the past decade. In
  addition, studies have begun to provide evidence to help characterize the neural
  mechanisms of emotional intelligence.


  
Criticisms have centered on whether EI is a real intelligence and whether it has
  incremental validity over IQ and the Big Five personality traits.[11] Review finds that, in
  most studies, poor research methodology has exaggerated the significance of EI.
