It's not too difficult to imagine measures that could be used for emotional intelligence (., being good at judging others, being control of our emotions, etc.). But these only demonstrate face validity . Just like anxiety, emotional intelligence is a complex concept. As the example above illustrates, measurement procedures used to capture emotional intelligence aim to measure a wide range of emotionally intelligent domains and emotional competences. Not all of these measures may necessarily appear face valid, but they do demonstrate stronger construct and content validity (., Boyatzis et al., 1999; Mayer & Geher, 1996; Mayer et al., 2000; Goleman et al., 2002).
