“Feeling smart: The science of emotional intelligence” (Daisy Grewal and Peter Salovey, American Scientist, 2005) is an informative and interesting article that psychologist as well as anyone interested in the subject should read.
I think the relation in between a high E.Q. and an one above average is link with levels of serotonin in the brain. Such a relations should be study.
Although emotional intelligence takes into consideration, as key factors, cognitive capacities and skills in the handling of emotion; a higher than normal level of serotonin probably plays a part in the exercise of emotional intelligence process thru its influence on feelings that allows for better reaction control.
