More About This Textbook

Overview

When Peter Salovey and John D. Mayer first formally defined the term “Emotional Intelligence” (EI) in an academic journal in 1990, they described it as “the ability to monitor one's own and others' feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them, and to use this information to guide one's thinking and actions,” and presented an empirical model demonstration of how EI could be tested as a mental ability. Since that time, the term has captured the interest of the media and the general public, as well as researchers and professionals in fields of education, psychology and business, however others who have written about EI over the years have a much different, loser conception of the construct than what was originally proposed by Mayer and Salovey .The editors created “Emotional Intelligence: Key Readings” in order to clarify the Mayer and Salovey's ability model of EI, which strictly focuses on four branches of emotion-related processing: 1) Accurately perceiving and expressing emotion; 2) Using emotion to facilitate cognitive activities; 3) Understanding emotions; 4) Managing emotions for both emotional and personal growth. They present 13 articles that introduce the theory, measurement, and applications of the Mayer and Salovey four-branch ability model of EI, and distinguish it (both theoretically and empirically) from other “mixed” conceptions that permeate the field.

Meet the Author

Peter Salovey, PhD is the 23rd president of Yale University. He has been a member of the Yale community since 1981, first as a graduate student (earning MS, MPhil, and PhD degrees), then a faculty member, chair of the Psychology Department, dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, dean of Yale College, and provost. Salovey has authored or edited over a dozen books that have been translated into eleven languages, and has published more than 350 journal articles and essays, primarily on the topic of human emotion and health behavior. With John D. Mayer, he developed a broad framework called “Emotional Intelligence.” This now well-known theory posits that just as people have a wide range of intellectual abilities, they also have a wide range of measurable emotional skills that profoundly affect their thinking and action.
