    I see it in two parts:

    Understanding and reading others emotions.

    Knowing how to, as you say, elicit reactions from that reading.

    and...

    What you actually do with that knowledge.

    I'm sure there's a streamlined bullet point explanation somewhere out therez.
    Do you think people can use EQ for less-than-good purposes? I kind of do.

    In case anyone hasn't seen this study, EQ by MBTI type, as it correlates to business.

    100% they can. And do all the time.

    That's why I mentioned "What you actually do with that knowledge. "

    One could use it to help or use it to manipulate. Extreme examples, think of the charming serial killers, Ted Bundy and Rodney Alcala or the "Dating Game Killer," to name a few.

    I would think that being able to abuse EQ effectively takes above average EQ, but someone with even better EQ than that would understand what's wrong with abusing it.

    Mmm. This is why kids get kicked out of school for cheating but rapists can stay. A clear case of overrating emotional intelligence, if I ever saw one.

    Popular culture has discovered EQ. So our Secret Service is recruiting from popular culture. It gives fresh meaning to the words, military intelligence*.

    So you guys would say that morality is tied into EQ?

    Seems like a different dimension altogether, but I guess I could see it going either way.

    I would say that it wasn't because morality, in a way, can be constructed but EQ? you can only get a sad shadow of it, not the real thing...

    I say this as an emotional idiot who doesn't know how to respond when someone's excited or starts crying or anything of the sort... I have a mental file cabinet of acceptable responses but I'm rather aware that they lack the genuineness of the spontaneous responses of those who innately KNOW what to do. I know what someone's feeling a lot of the time but have no fucking clue what I'M supposed to do about it... emoting people make me very uncomfortable

    however, I wouldn't describe myself as immoral... I have my own personal rules that I try my hardest not to violate... these rules protect others and recognize their own autonomy

    so just my two cents there

    Here's what I found, Official Definition:

    4 Main Factors of Emotional Intelligence:

    1. Perceiving Emotions: The first step in understanding emotions is to accurately perceive them. In many cases, this might involve understanding nonverbal signals such as body language and facial expressions.

    2. Reasoning With Emotions: The next step involves using emotions to promote thinking and cognitive activity. Emotions help prioritize what we pay attention and react to; we respond emotionally to things that garner our attention.

    3. Understanding Emotions: The emotions that we perceive can carry a wide variety of meanings. If someone is expressing angry emotions, the observer must interpret the cause of their anger and what it might mean. For example, if your boss is acting angry, it might mean that he is dissatisfied with your work; or it could be because he got a speeding ticket on his way to work that morning or that he's been fighting with his wife.

    4. Managing Emotions: The ability to manage emotions effectively is a key part of emotional intelligence. Regulating emotions, responding appropriately and responding to the emotions of others are all important aspect of emotional management.


    So to me, and what I've read, it has nothing to do with morality. Just like regular 'ol intelligence.
