No, I think emotional intelligence is a total farce. The compulsive need to quantify and pathologize everything is itself a huge issue. And emotional content has nothing to do with intelligence. Emotions are a function for manipulating social phenomena. To label manipulative skills as a form of intelligence is a grotesque misuse. This is why so many fools fall for charlatans, they mistake manipulative capacity with intelligence. That connection needs severed for clarity.
