    Managing emotions – the ability to regulate emotions in both ourselves and in others. Therefore, the emotionally intelligent person can harness emotions, even negative ones, and manage them to achieve intended goals.
    Fi doms probably win 1 and 3 but i don't know how they stack up in 2 and 4.

    Not even close. EQ is more of an Fe thing than just F -- and Se types are better than Ne types anyway. The function breakdown is something like Fe > Se > Ni > Fi > Ne > Ti > Si > Te.

    I don't see an emotionally mature Fi-dom less adept at 2 & 4 than an emotionally mature Fe type. I have a feeling 2 & 4 is always harder for an immature Feeler....and 1 & 3 will be harder for the immature Thinker. I think EQ is a lot more of a maturity matter than IQ.

    Well, thank God otherwise this discussion would get very boring very quickly.

    Let's see... Fe is ethical focus based on external input, versus ethical focus on internal input (Fi). Further, Fe + Se types (NFJ/STP) focus on the ethical atmosphere based on present raw input (Se) and a flexible mindset (Ni), versus mapped input (Si) and possibilities (Ne). Ever wonder why the snake oil salesman stereotype is ESTP?
