If so, an explicit understanding of EI as a focus for real-world interventions may improve existing practice and suggest new techniques for hitherto intractable problems. Summary In sum, we have argued that the research needed to build a science of EI has three pillars: reliable and valid measurement, process-based theory, and practical application. It would be a mistake to construct any of these supports without considering the very extensive theoretical and applied research already dealing with emotional aptitudes and competencies.

Checking that the source of this clustering is not some trivial artifact, such as a response bias, the particular measurement operations and methods employed to assess the construct, or other extraneous factors . Checking that the cluster of qualities represents a new, rather than existing, scientific construct . Establishing that the construct has some predictive validity, in other words, that the test relates to other psychologically meaningful or practically useful criteria In this section, we first outline a destination—the desiderata for a good test of EI.

The essence of this operational definition of intelligence is that understanding proceeds through measurement. Reliable measurement of some quality of the person is the necessary precursor to defining that quality in terms of its relationships with other constructs. Conventional intelligence tests (IQ tests) have sufficient power to predict other personal qualities that we can say that they define an important attribute of the person that relates to intelligence, as popularly understood. Rocket scientists obtain high scores on the tests; intellectually challenged people, having substantially impaired cognitive skills in everyday life, do not.
