I haven’t posted about this because I presumed anyone interested would read the book.
How silly of me. You need to read something online first, right?
It’s new but there’s a lot there since emotional processing and regulation are cognitive abilities.
“Gender and race differences in EI are also meta-analyzed”
Yes, it’s totally SJW propaganda, they love looking for that stuff.
Not a day goes by, those pesky feminists don’t look for racial differences!
Did not one of you bother to look this up? I’m not even looking hard and finding great methods.
“both self-report EI and mixed EI exhibit modest yet statistically significant incremental validity (ΔR2 = .03 for self-report EI and ΔR2 = .06 for mixed EI) and large relative importance (31.3% for self-report EI and 42.8% for mixed EI) in the presence of cognitive ability and personality when predicting job satisfaction.”
You’d have to be quite stupid not to believe in EQ, it’s the technical side of what’s commonly mistaken for personality metrics. Do you not have a personality too? Do the people who “don’t believe” in IQ fail to have one?
If I dislike one MENSA member, IQ doesn’t cease to exist, I just think the person testing him should’ve tested him more.
If you can turn up your nose at meta-analyses, you must be intellectually dishonest. There’s no greater test available.
An hysterical or over-emotional person would also have a low EI/Q like the unfeeling robot, this isn’t emotionality or neuroticism. Those already exist.
If you read Daniel Goleman‘s book called, funnily enough, Emotional Intelligence, he explains many emotional difficulties men have, which lead to outcomes that are recognized and bemoaned by the same people that ignore EQ/EI (crime, divorce, suicide, depression)… male problems.
If those problems are real, the cause (low EQ/I) is also real.
Medical problem, biological cause. You’d think. So, what, are we not meant to study it? Because it might hurt some feelings? And you’re different from the SJW-types how?
“When measured as a trait, EI was more strongly associated with health ( = .34) than when it was measured as an ability ( = .17). The weighted average association with mental ( = .36) and psychosomatic health ( = .33) was higher, than the association with physical health ( = .27). Within the trait approach, the TEIQue showed the strongest association with mental health ( = .50), followed by the EQ-i ( = .44), SEIS ( = .29) and TMMS ( = .24). Furthermore, the cumulative meta-analysis indicated that this line of research has already reached sufficiency and stability. Overall, the results are encouraging regarding the value of EI as a plausible health predictor.”
Do you not have health, either?
Those numbers are too huge to ignore.
Do you not have job performance? Are those metrics made-up too?
(All metrics are made up, dummy).
“a significant correlation emerges from the data between emotional intelligence and job satisfaction”
Relates to depression.
“The results support the overall validity of EI”
What would Forbes know about economic productivity?
Emotional stability and cognitive ability? Useless! Because some guys online can’t stand the idea they might fail a test. A totally unreal test, for sissies.
It’s still your brain processing emotions so obviously it’s going to correlate highly with IQ, another metric of brain processing. (Your highly is not scientific highly).
“EI is not soft, fluffy or about wanting to be liked. Individuals who have high EI want to succeed, can control their emotions, are gregarious and have positive self-appraisals. Nothing fluffy there.”
There’s a 22% correlate with general mental ability too.
“This study used meta-analytic techniques to examine the relationship between emotional intelligence (EI) and performance outcomes. A total of 69 independent studies were located that reported correlations between EI and performance or other variables such as general mental ability (GMA)”
Where’s the science?
The journals? Where they always were?
After controlling for other factors like IQ, it is still predictive of stress and life satisfaction.
Like IQ, you can improve, it’s possible to bump it.
The alexithymia men typically report is responsive to therapy, surprising no one.
“The construct of emotional intelligence (EI) refers to the individual differences in the perception, processing, regulation, and utilization of emotional information. As these differences have been shown to have a significant impact on important life outcomes (e.g., mental and physical health, work performance and social relationships), this study investigated, using a controlled experimental design, whether it is possible to increase EI. Participants of the experimental group received a brief empirically-derived EI training (four group training sessions of two hours and a half) while control participants continued to live normally. Results showed a significant increase in emotion identification and emotion management abilities in the training group. Follow-up measures after 6 months revealed that these changes were persistent. No significant change was observed in the control group. These findings suggest that EI can be improved and open new treatment avenues.”
Alexithymia, btw: “Alexithymia is defined by: difficulty identifying feelings and distinguishing between feelings”.
I’m sure that has nothing to do with emotional processing in the brain, nope!
Why would we want to help men with their mental problems, how sexist! Men don’t have feelings!
Anecdotally, women know men have low EI or EQ because whenever they ask us about something, they want us to process their emotions for them, by whining and venting and hoping we’ll do the emotional labour on their behalf. Yep, like women letting men fix their car.
Emotional labour can also be studied scientifically.
The SJWs didn’t make it up.
