The term “Emotional Intelligence” was conceived by Dr Peter Salovey and John Mayer in 1990 as an identifier for the human capacity to understand and engage in meaningful social interactions. Together with Dr. David Caruso, they developed the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT™). In his book “Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ” (1995), Daniel Goleman defined Emotional Intelligence (EI) as the "capacity for recognising our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and our relationships."
In 1997, Dr Reuven Bar-On devised the Emotional Quotient Inventory (BarOn EQ-i) which pinpoints the traits that allow a person to succeed and those that stand in the way of progress.
Considerable research has shown that emotional intelligence is a significant determinant of success in many occupations, and often more significant than traditional Intelligence.
