Emotional EQ's
 
We all seem to be familiar with the correlation between types and intelligence or IQ. I am curious about the correlation between types and functions and emotional intelligence or emotional availability. Does the acuity of each function (Te, Ti) have an affect on the individual's EQ?

I know of an ENFp friend, age 18, who scored 120 on an EQ test
and an ESTj man, age 50, who scored about 90

On the site it says EQ increases as you get older.
But I think it's probably safe to say that Fs are likely to score higher then Ts

Some people are just dumb and some are just clever regardless of type. Trying to find correlation between the type and IQ is like trying to make 1 rule explaining when socionics j/p should be flipped in relation to MBTI type and when not...pointless.

Yeah there doesn't seem much of a correlation...well, any.

Something i've wondered though, and wondering what you think, do you think that an F type with a big brain is still able to succeed in somethings like programming, maths or business or maybe even although they are clever they would still be hampered by their weak T?

I think the physical size of a brain definitely contributes to IQ more than any specific type.

To reiterate, the brain is like a muscle, the bigger the stronger but how one choses to use it would make or break it. The great intellectual capacity can simply be wasted and someone with big brain could be inferior to someone with smaller but more developed brain.

Many F types are successful in business because they have developed interpersonal skills and because they are smart.

I don't think big brain necessarily means a more intelligent individual than someone with a smaller brain. big brain<>intelligence

Actually the size of brain in proportion to the rest of the body is related to intelligence very much, this is what scientists found out anyway.

This discussion is about EeeeeeeQ not IQ.

My IQ is much greater than my EQ for what its worth.

What does acuity mean? :D

Hehe, srsly though, I think your question has been answered though, no?

Apparently EQ can change with age.

Something else I checked, I noticed it says on wiki (among other things):

Quote:

The researchers also found TEIQue scores were unrelated to nonverbal reasoning (Raven's matrices), which they interpreted as support for the personality trait view of EI (as opposed to a form of intelligence). As expected, TEIQue scores were positively related to some of the Big Five personality traits (extraversion, agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness) as well as inversely related to others (alexithymia, neuroticism). A number of quantitative genetic studies have been carried out within the trait EI model, which have revealed significant genetic effects and heritabilities for all trait EI scores.[24].
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotional_quotient

Which is basically saying that EQ directly relates to scores on the Big Five. The Big Five figures can also change over time, so therefore EQ can change over time. Sociionic type is generally regarded as remaining the same.

fwiw, I do think that it makes sense that at least on paper that F types will score higher on EQ than T types. However, in practice, maybe not so much. eg a T type could consider all the facts available to them to decide what is the best thing to do to get the best out of a team - taking into account 'emotional' related issues may very well factor into it, but although they don't relate to it through F per se, it just factors into the formula for application. Alternatively, an F type might go, "screw you! I care about myself more"!

fwiw, maybe as an example, I do know an ESFp who's been in a particular job for years and knows it inside out. I suppose on paper it could be classified as good Te even although she's pretty clearly F imo. I guess it is like the muscle idea, not just size but how much is used, another way to put it is there's little substitute for experience (same with job application as experience with using the muscle over long time and frequency etc).
