Emotional Intelligence is still in the early stages of development as a psychological construct. The current EI tests have been shown to offer some value but not nearly what the hype around EI would lead one to believe. As the research develops, we can expect to see more elaborate models of Emotional Intelligence and more impactful EI tests.

Emotional intelligence has made its way into everyday language and despite its critics, it is growing in popularity and slowly earning its right as a topic worthy of further research.
