What if I said that emotional intelligence is the ability to recognize, understand and control emotions – not just our own but the emotions of others, as well?

This is not some sort of rhetoric slight of hand nor is that definition controversial. It’s common doctrine. But if authors were to say that Adolf Hitler was as adept at emotional intelligence as Martin Luther King Jr. they would not sell many books or book a lot of gigs.
