    See also " Personality Tests in Employment Selection: Use With Caution — Cornell HR Review ", which @highlander referenced in this post. For some reason, the article focuses also on EQ but doesn't make that clear in the title.

    Personality & Emotional Intelligence

    The link between personality and emotional intelligence to job performance is compelling.[4] Though there is strong evidence that cognitive measurement tools are good predictors of job success, one important reason that they are not perfect predictors is that human personality is an important factor in job success.[5] But not all are convinced that assessing workers’ cognitive abilities is worthwhile.
    [...]
    As the name implies, emotional intelligence (“EQ”) is not a personality trait but a type of intelligence. Beginning in the 20th century, society has viewed intelligence almost exclusively through the lens of intelligence quotient (“IQ”) tests.[30] IQ tests have the advantage of being very reliable, but they are limited in that they measure abstract reasoning and verbal fluency.[31] In 1990 Peter Salovey and John Mayer proposed an additional intelligence: emotional intelligence.[32] Emotional intelligence is comprised of four components: First, people need to be able to accurately perceive emotions in themselves and others and have the ability to express their own emotions effectively. Second, people need to be aware of how their emotions shape their thinking, decisions, and coping mechanisms. Third, people need to be able to understand and analyze their emotions, which may often be complex and contradictory. Fourth, people need to be able to regulate their emotions so that they can dampen negative emotions and make effective use of positive emotions.[33]
    [...]
    When these same employers were asked to identify specific behaviors and qualities that demonstrate EQ, they responded that employees who demonstrate high EQ:

    Admit and learn from their mistakes
    Can keep their emotions in check and have thoughtful discussions on tough issues
    Listen as much, or more than, they talk
    Take criticism well
    Show grace under pressure[36]

    The opinions given by the surveyed employers are also echoed in academic literature on the subject. Research indicates that emotional intelligence has predictive validity “in domains such as academic performance, job performance, negotiation, leadership, emotional labor, trust, work-family conflict, and stress.”[37] While some contend that emotional intelligence and personality are the same, other studies reveal that emotional intelligence is measuring something apart from personality.[38] Specifically, when measuring emotional intelligence as a separate construct, it can be measured separately from intelligence and personality.”[39] In one 1995 study, it was claimed that emotional intelligence was the most significant job performance predictor.[40] However, as in many areas of research, the keynote finding of one study does not even make the footnote of a similar study. Such was the case in 2011 when a study, relying on much more data than the 1995 sample, could not support the earlier claim that EQ predicts job performance.[41] Although the exact role EQ plays in the workplace is still up for debate, it is reasonable to assume from the multitude of studies linking EQ to various performance factors that a valid and reliable emotional intelligence test used in selection process should result in useful data.
    So this article claims that EQ is important in the business setting. Well, sort of. In any case, it also provides studies to back up its claims.

    But are these articles actually talking about the same thing? This particular article presents EQ as less interpersonal and more 'intrapersonal'--more about understanding one's own motivations than about lovey-dovey teamwork.

    I also haven't delved into the studies that this article cites, but they may be measuring something else entirely; and they may be measuring that through different means.

    The problem with the whole shebang is that psychometry isn't yet mature enough for its results to be so generalizable. And both articles recognize that. Hell, it's even in the title of this article.

    Umm.. this is incorrect.
    People with more emotions than thoughts should be sensible, not just sensitive.
    I don’t accept this mistake because of my respect to emotional genius people.

    No in the grand scheme of humanity, at this juncture EQ is underrated and IQ is overrated. Seriously if I converse online with one more self typed INT with extremely low EQ who thinks their IQ is beneficial to mankind I'll puke. Let's have more Einstein, a man with a high IQ who had ethics and knew how to love.

    Yep.

    Anyway, the "balanced detached" view where you just report data seems to be disappearing / has disappeared.
    I do agree with this, but it's so much improved compared to the 19th century and even early 20th century in journalism which was very yellow. The mid to late 20th century took the prize in srs cat, but people with real EQ DON'T go into journalism anymore and they don't watch TV or read Yahoo news, rather LOWER EQ has become normative.

    I know, right? My point exactly. Journalism has become about borderline sociopathic sensationalism. That is not EQ. Nor is harming others to your gain. I avoided Journalism in college because of the nasty UNETHICAL nature of it, many people with high EQ avoid corporate business because of the unethical nature of it...it's really damn sad that people associate narcissistic or sociopathic manipulation with "EQ"...UM NO. Jesus had EQ. Mother Teresa, Ghandi, John Lennon, Jerry Garcia. Not Rush Limbaugh.

    As has been mentioned, in business or where lives are literally at stake EQ is overrated. Though recognizing emotions in the face would certainly be an advantage in making a sale or schmoozing with a potential client, or hell, blending as an undercover in a narcotics unit.

    In the more "Yin" arenas of life, EQ adds more soul and general harmony. Probably good to have it when raising a family, for example.

    Our culture is too focused on Te and literal gain, as well as a sort of blank low level Se, many people say United States is ENTJ, probably because of the high Te and immature Se.

    It's a bad way to run a society if there's no balance. It's not escaped me that many people who are the source of mockery in our society are SFP, especially mentally ill SFPs. And I stagger at the audacity of people thinking they're good and normal while they mourn Robin Williams but make fun of Amanda Bynes.

    Yeah, EQ can be a real detriment to the sort of corruption of corporate capitalism we practice in this particular era, no doubt. But to say it's been overrated by mainstream society in the United States is wildly incorrect and almost the opposite.

    No countries perfect. And we have lots of liberties here.

    What's this about people feeling good and normal and Robin Williams and Amanda Bynes? I know those people, but not sure what you're getting at.

    EQ hasn't been overrated by mainstream society, most people don't know what the hell EQ even is.

    True, we need to know that EQ = IQ
    In value they’re both equal, it’s just that they’re on the other side of the equation*.
    Just like two different sides of the same coin.
