Emotional Intelligence Two psychologists - John Mayer, Ph.D. of University of New Hampshire and Peter Salovey, Ph.D. of Yale University - published two academic papers on emotional intelligence “The ability to monitor one's own and other's feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one's thinking and actions." (1990).

Emotional Intelligence ‘It should depend upon the nature of the position. Some jobs require a higher level of emotional intelligence than others such as that of a programmer. Some jobs may actually require emotional intelligence as a critical, job-related skill, such as that of a social worker.’ David Caruso (www.eiskills.com, accessed 2007)www.eiskills.com
