Susan Cartwright1 and Constantinos Pappas
The concept of emotional intelligence (EI) has attracted a huge amount of interest from both
academics and practitioners and has become linked to a whole range of outcomes, including
career success, life satisfaction and health. Yet the concept itself and the way in which it is
measured continue to fuel considerable debate. This paper takes a critical review of the
methodologies and robustness of the validation and application studies that have used EI
measures. In addition, the links between EI and other related theoretical perspectives such
as emotional labour are considered.
