Presents a critical discussion of the claims and achievements regarding various types of tests of emotional intelligence (EI). The construct of EI, the reception given to EI tests, EI as a new type of intelligence, EI as self-efficacy in the social-emotional sphere, and factors determining intellectual achievement are examined. It is maintained that most EI tests are inventories measuring bundles of known personality factors and that EI is less a personality trait than a trait domain. The overestimation of the role of general personality traits and the underestimation of the role of situational factors and acquired expertise in the EI literature are discussed.
