Emotional Intelligence Debate
June 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT
The Business Psychology Department invites you to a Debate about Emotional Intelligence. The debate is presented by Dr. Jay Finkelman, chair of the I-O Business Psychology Department. Dr. Finkelman is board certified in forensic psychology & organizational and business consulting psychology. He has authored over 100 publications and co-authored 3 books.
Emotional intelligence was though to fill a gap that otherwise could not be explained by less encumbered traditional intelligence measures, and hence its almost immediate popularity and appeal. The research, however, has been rather equivocal and suffers from poor operational definitions of the dependent variables and very limited external validity. Dr. Jay Finkelman will argue that the concept of emotional Intelligence is total nonsense.RSVP
