The EI trait is “a constellation of self-perceptions related to emotions located on lower personality levels. The EI trait refers to an individual’s own perceptions of his or her emotional capabilities, as opposed to the capability-based model that refers to actual capabilities. However, the assessment of actual abilities has proven to be very resistant to scientific measurement, so the reality is that there may be little to choose from among them.
