Are you a researcher? Working on your dissertation? If so, I recommend heading to Jack Mayer’s website for resources. However, also keep the following in mind:
-Make sure your hypotheses are clear. That is, consider what EI should predict. The answer is not “everything”! Focus on long-term quality relationships, engagement, and how a leader works rather than what they accomplish.
-Include Big 5 and IQ proxies (e.g., SAT scores, education level) in your design. Self-report scales have huge overlap with personality.
-I prefer the expert scoring over general consensus.
Our best overview was published several years back in the American Psychologist (2008). I like this article and suggest you start here and then scan Jack’s comprehensive website or Google Scholar for more information.
