    Let's see... Fe is ethical focus based on external input, versus ethical focus on internal input (Fi).

Ever wonder why the snake oil salesman stereotype is ESTP?
    bold: agreed (most people take disagreement way too friggin seriously lol)
    emotional intelligence is about comprehending what someone feels and why. Feeling (more Fe but also Fi) is attuned to what the other person is feeling, but Ne and Ni are the why. NFs have an almost psychic ability to read people's true motivations and intentions and why they're feeling how they are. that being said, SPs also seem to have fairly high emotional intelligence, but NFs trump all at communicating and solving emotional problems.

    lmao, Ns are not psychic. Intuition is an attitude focusing on the abstract, possibilities, ideas; and is less attuned to receiving raw data from the outer world -- thus is less adept at reading cues off people's behavior. Given that we don't make up for it by reading their minds, that puts us at a disadvantage when trying to size people up.

    ESTJ FOR THE WIN. Actually, someone did post a study on the forum where the Te doms were the best at this and INFPs sucked at this type of thing (dead last). I am way to lazy too search for it.

    Thought I'd throw this in the mix.. It was a surprise to me..


    "In a the recent issue of the Bulletin for Psychological Type (Vol. 29, No.3 2006), one of the authors, Henry “Dick” Thompson (2006, p. 18), reported on some of his research into EI and Type. Of the 5 personality types with the highest overall EQ score, three preferred Feeling and two preferred Thinking. In fact the top 2 were ENTJ and ESTJ ! (followed by ENFJ, ESFP, and ENFP). Of the 5 personality types with the lowest overall EQ score, three were Feeling types and two were Thinking types. And surprisingly, the bottom two were Feeling types: ISFJ and INFP! People looking for a correlation between EQ and Feeling won’t find it in Thompson’s research! About the only conclusion Thompson seemed willing to risk from this study was it appears that the EQ measures have a bias towards Extraversion.

    Another authority of Personality Type, Elizabeth Murphy (2006, p. 26), reported on a study that found a correlation between dominant Intuition and high EI scores. Murphy noted that this same study, like Thompson's, found no relationship between EI and Feeling."

    true, but NFs can seem like it. both intuition and feeling are highly subjective and near impossible to dublicate via observation. NFs can get on intimate terms with the other person's emotions extremely quickly.

    Thank you for finding that. We were on the same wavelength.

    Interesting - it doesn't correlate with F or Fe. With that in mind, I wonder what exactly makes some types better at it than others, other than Extroversion...

    henry thompson's study
    the EQ test used

    Total EI
    top 5: ENTJ, ESTJ, ENFJ, ESFP, ENFP
    bottom 5: ISTP, INFJ, ISTJ, ISFJ, INFP

    Self-Awareness
    top 5: ENFJ, ENFP, ESFP, ESTJ, ESFJ
    bottom 5: INFJ, INTP, ISTP, ISFJ, ISTJ

    the extravert/introvert divide is surprising

    also interesting:

    My work with Type and EI over the years leads me to the following working hypotheses:

    All attitudes, functions and function-attitudes are affected by emotions.
    The Type-Emotion relationship is recursive.
    Type mediates emotional action patterns.
    Type mediates EI.
    EI is innate in the way Type is innate.
    EI is developing concomitantly with Type
    Both Type and EI are dynamical systems and interact as such.
    Type and EI are components within the same Human system and share a nonlinear relationship, such that each influences the development and use of the other.
    In general, some Types are predisposed to have higher EI potential than others (Superman’s cape again).

    So far, I have been presenting my models of Type and EI through the dynamical systems lens. Now a brief look at two other perspectives.

    Pearman (2001) says that each Psychological Type develops interpersonal awareness and competence in different ways and that EI is related more to one’s overall development, not Type. He further elaborates by hypothesizing a relationship between the function-attitudes (mental processes) and the eight abilities of emotional intelligence proposed by some EI theorists. For a more detailed description of Pearman’s (2006) thoughts, see his article in this issue.

    Maddocks (2004) takes the approach that EI is about managing our Type (personality) and not that some Types have more or less EI than others. He does believe, however, that it would be useful to identify patterns of differences among Types. More recently, he hypothesized the fit of the function-attitudes into his four-quadrant EI model, such that Si and Ni are about Self Awareness, Se and Ne are about Other Awareness, Ti and Fi are about Self Management and Te and Fe are about Relationship Management. For a more detailed description of Maddocks’s (2006) thoughts, see his article in this issue.

    How is EQ typically measured? I've never taken an official EQ test, just an online one. Just going by that though, it seems to me that a large chunk of it is self-reporting, which makes sense for Te-doms to score well on. They tend to be over-confident in their abilities. You can also answer the question with the "right" answer, or truly based on how you feel. I don't see emotional dishonesty as being a higher EQ, and yet it could score you higher.... When I've taken the test, I always choose what is honest, even if takes my score down for supposedly being prone to depression or whatever. I know the "correct" answer though.

    EQ is going to be largely related to social values in some ways also, which extroverts & Je types will often adhere to more, but are these really the superior standards or healthier attitudes? Many a Fi-dom will say "no", they need heavy revision and are rather shallow in many ways. I think its much harder to measure than IQ, because there's less of a clear right/wrong on a test.

    Hmmm.... I sort of assumed that EQ had to do with interpersonal intelligence (which, as is abundantly obvious, ENFJs and ESTPs have BY FAR the best time with). If it has to do with internal neuroticism, etc. then it'd make sense for Te-doms to get top scores on it.
