Emotionally intelligent people are thought to be more skilled in recognizing, thinking about, using, and regulating emotions, both with respect to the self and others. Something akin to emotional intelligence had been proposed by intelligence theorists such as Thorndike (1920) and Gardner (1983), but its systematic study is more recent. Salovey and Mayer (1990) provided initial guidance in the field, and Goleman (1995) popularized the construct. Critics soon emerged, and some suggested that emotional intelligence cannot be distinguished from other individual difference classes such as personality. There is now some consensus that ability-related measures of emotional intelligence cannot be equated with personality traits, but there are questions about whether measures of this type possess substantial value in predicting real-world outcomes. Though significant questions remain, this field has matured, and it makes sense to take stock of what we have learned so far as well as what we might learn in the future, as encapsulated by the Special Issue‘s working title of “Ability-Related Emotional Intelligence: Knowns, Unknowns, and Future Directions“. This Special Issue would focus on questions of assessment, mechanisms, and predictive potential in multiple domains of functioning (e.g., the work domain) and would seek to capitalize on recent developments in making a case in favor of the emotional intelligence construct. Contributions should focus on ability-related (rather than trait-related) conceptions, though intervention perspectives are also welcome.
