They must also be able to guess and influence the emotions of other people, and of groups of other people. There are several different models that disagree about the exact definition of the term. Even though there does not seem to be an exact definition, the model itself can be applied in various ways, across different domains.
Nowadays, there are 3 main models of Emotional intelligence:
- Ability Based EI Models
- Mixed Models of EI
- Trait EI Models
