Emotions/personality tests

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Please respond to the students text below……

1. According to Robbins and Judge (2015), emotional intelligence or EI is “…a person’s ability to (1) perceive emotions in the self and others, (2) understand the meaning of these emotions, and (3) regulate one’s emotions accordingly in a cascading model…” (p. 104). From my previous experiences, I would define emotional intelligence as being able to understand our own and other’s emotions, as well as control it. We would also have to be aware of what emotions we are portraying along with what other people are portraying. I have also learned in previous classes that “EQ” is another acronym for emotional intelligence. Overall, I think I just simplified the book’s definition. In a study that Mayer, Roberts, and Barsade exhibited, they measured the following emotions: happiness, sadness, fear, anger, surprise, disgust, and contempt (2008, p. 515). However, there are more emotions than what they measured.

2. Emotional intelligence has its positive points, for instance, the intuitive appeal, emotional intelligence predicts criteria that matter, and it is biologically based. These arguments in favor of emotional intelligence seem reasonable enough to fight for the case. On the other hand, there are also some points that make people question the validity of emotional intelligence. For example, researchers have not exactly agreed on a definition, it cannot be measured, and EI is almost the same as personality, just labeled differently. I can see the arguments for and against emotional intelligence; however, I will elaborate more on the limitations and weaknesses of emotional intelligence (Robbins and Judge, 2015, p. 107-108).
