EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE FROM A TO Z: CONCEPT, MEASUREMENT AND PRACTICAL ISSUES
Moderator: Zorana Jolić Marjanović
Although the term emotional intelligence (EI) debuted as quite controversial, zealous scientific efforts have at last culminated in its upgrade to a recognizable psychological construct. By introducing cutting-edge solutions in EI theory, assessment, and use, the symposium aims to tackle a number of relevant questions. First of all, the current EI science is characterized by a peaceful co-existence of two types of theoretical models: ability models placing EI side by side with other cognitive abilities (ability EI) and trait models locating EI within the realm of personality (trait EI). Both types of EI models will be thoroughly explained in our first presentation. Further, to this day the field of EI assessment has faced serious criticism, mostly pertaining to somewhat unconventional solutions in item construction and scoring. Nevertheless, numerous EI measures have been proposed and subjected to rigorous validation, as we will hear in our second presentation. Finally, during the years these measures have served to gather an ample amount of data on the relation between EIs and a vast pool of psychological constructs and life outcomes. Other then confirming the proposed ability-trait EI distinction, these data allowed for objective evaluation of EIs’ usefulness when it comes to real-life variables, including mental health, work and school performance. This evaluation will be provided by the last three presenters.
