THE ABILITY MODEL

Till now we have discussed about Goleman’s mixed model of Emotional Intelligence. But prior to that there exists a famous model of EI called ability model by Salovey and Mayer. It is the first model and also base for the Goleman’s model. This model views emotions as sources of valuable information to that helps one to cope up with the society. As emotions are sources of information, this model says that individuals differ in their abilities to process and understand such kind of information. It proposes 4 kind of abilities as stated below.

1. Perceiving the emotions The ability to recognise the emotions of others and self. It is the starting aspect of Emotional Intelligence.

2. Using the emotions

It is the basic model but has some lack of validity in workplaces. Also, it views emotions as positive and negative rather than appropriate or inappropriate as in mixed model. Thus it is valid to say mixed model suits to the present world’s scenario better.
MEASURING
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Before going into measurement of EI, there is another model for Emotional Intelligence called ‘TRAIT MODEL’ which was proposed by Konstantinos Vasilis Petrides. This model says that individual’s trait EI depends on their self-perception of their own Emotional abilities. It doesn’t talk about interpersonal features. This model should be viewed in terms of personality framework.

The measurement of EI in different models is different and has their own advantages. Trait model measures EI by using self reports, which tests more of personality and has limited measures that actually measure Emotional Intelligence.

The mixed model’s measurement of Emotional Intelligence is through ‘Haygroup ECi’ assessment which measure EI ability. It is more related and intended for organisational use. It includes self, managers, peers and direct reports for evaluation, also this model is a complete 360 degree model. This model measure the abilities in terms of 20 variable that are broadly classified into its elements stated

It tests the EI abilities, by a series of emotion based problem statements. On the basis of performance of individual in each of its branches, It evaluates the score and calculates total score. This model considers EI to be a unique form of social Intelligence or skill making it more oriented for workplace application. The high score in this test means there is a higher overlap between the individual’s answers and worldwide sample score/answers. Also expert score measuring is done by measuring the overlap between the individual’s answers and the answers of 21 Emotional researchers. But question framing is a tough task in this test because the question can’t be framed where only a minority of group answers it, as it won’t be counted until a majority endorses it, thus making this test question the definition of EI as genuine

    People are looking so powerful that it is difficult to utilize the theory in its full treatment. Alternatively, enforcement is likely to focus on one or two ideas, such as self-effectiveness. Minimizes Emotional Responses • According to Albert Bandura, behavior is mostly learned. However, developmentary psychologists such as Stephen Pinker have represent that some behavior is the result of emotional responses determined mostly by biological factor which are controlled heavily by development, and has little to do with conditioning or measuring. For example jealousy can take one to behave in a way that is not conformable with one's normal behavior.…

    I don’t think the self-reflection assessment was measuring exactly what was being tested either. There were too many variables that make the test less reliable. In contrast I do think the introvert vs. introvert personality assessment was a reliable test. I think I would consistently answer the questions the same due to its specificity. It is a valid form of testing because it is specifically testing if you are either introverted or extroverted.…

    Emotional Conditioning Emotional conditioning can be seen as the gateway to understanding a multitude of characteristics of human psychology (McLeod). The variation of emotional responses among people can be accounted for by life experiences and mental associations. Knowledge on conditioned emotional responses can be seen as limited, along much of the other knowledge associated with the brain’s workings. The many factors that contribute to the wide array of emotional responses can be more thoroughly analyzed, providing a justification as to why people respond in a specific manner. A conditioned emotional response is the result once a reaction has been established from repetitive scenarios, playing off of individuals’ emotions, contributing…

    The social-cultural influence is just what I said above- cultural expectations, social support, and childhood experiences all change how we will react to people in situations. If you think someone is mad at you, you are less likely to be warm and outgoing towards that person. This contrast greatly to the humanistic perspective below. The humanistic perspective states that you can influence your personality if you come from a positive background, have a positive outlook and basically if you are a genuine and healthy person. Maslow and Rogers believe that people can reach self-actualization rather than staying confined to their situation, past experience or biology- if their basic needs are…

    According to Corr these traits should act jointly and interdependently, in order to align with his theory of the joint influence. Corr believed that impulsivity would actually interact with anxiety and that such anxious and impulsive individuals would respond less to a startle stimulus than anxious, but non-impulsive people. This idea differed from the previous…

    the positive versus negative feelings state. Happiness may serve as an example of the first one, and anger as one for the second group. The theory posits that it is valence that causes changes in cognition and then results in various effects on JDM (Bachkirov 2015; Lerner & Keltner 2000). As it is a general approach towards affect, specific emotions and their specific effects on judgement and choice are not looked at. Rather, emotions of the same valence, like, for example, happiness and pride, are assumed to have similar effects (Lerner, Li, Valdesolo & Kassam 2015) and the question of whether two emotions of the same valence might effectuate different outcomes is mostly ignored (Lerner & Keltner…

    Intelligence is usually measured by ability tests, in constrast to personality, which is often just assessed using questionnaires. In addition, and as a result, these different measurements often lead to other distinction of these two elements, and as a result, intelligence is considered to show an individuals’ maximal performance, whereas personality is believed to underline their overall behaviour. However, some researchers argue that various and different methods can also be applied into assessing both personality and intelligence, such as self-rating questionnaires used to measure a person's mental inability. Often, however, such methods are avoided because they are seen as lacking accuracy and validity, which is usually the case when a person tries to assess…

    Basing these reports off of myself helped me understand whether the reports were accurate or not. Tests such as the general self-efficacy and the personal reaction inventory test and the big five-personality test really characterized some of my traits.
