This paper sets out the theoretical foundation of emotional intelligence (EI) as a constellation of traits and self‐perceived abilities. The discriminant validity of trait EI is explored in two studies. In study 1 (N = 227), the psychometric properties of the BarOn Emotional Quotient inventory were scrutinized through confirmatory factor analysis and the measure was found to be unifactorial. When the EQ‐i was examined concurrently with the Eysenck Personality Profiler, a clear trait EI factor… 
On the criterion and incremental validity of trait emotional intelligence
This paper presents a comprehensive investigation of the criterion and incremental validity of trait emotional intelligence (trait EI or trait emotional self-efficacy), which is defined as a
Advancing the trait EI content domain: Further evidence for the distinctiveness of interpersonal facets
Abstract This investigation sought to assess the congruence of the trait emotional intelligence (EI) sampling domain, reflected in the short form of the Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire
Is trait‐Emotional Intelligence simply or more than just a trait?
The present study examined the usefulness of trait‐Emotional Intelligence (EI) among a sample of 1186 top managers who filled out questionnaires for Emotional Intelligence and the Big Five and were
An investigation of emotional intelligence measures using item response theory.
TLDR
The psychometric properties of 3 frequently administered emotional intelligence scales, developed on the basis of different theoretical frameworks, are investigated and the nature of the EI construct should be considered during the process of scale development.
Trait Emotional Intelligence : evaluating the theoretical construct, its relationship to other psychological variables, and potential interventions to enhance it
Research suggests that there are now two distinct approaches to Emotional Intelligence (EI): ability and trait. To date, however, the literature indicates that the construct remains poorly defined
An Examination of a New Psychometric Method for Optimizing Multi-Faceted Assessment Instruments in the Context of Trait Emotional Intelligence
TLDR
A psychometric method aimed at identifying problem facets is outlined, which integrates theoretical and empirical steps and is applied in the context of the construct of trait emotional intelligence (trait EI), using data from six different samples across Europe.
Development and Validation of a Self-Report Measure of Emotional Intelligence as a Multidimensional Trait Domain
TLDR
Psychometric review of 33 peer-reviewed studies of six self- report emotional intelligence (EI) measures supports a multidimensional conceptualization of EI and confirms that trait-EI can be measured using self-report and conceptualized as a distinct multiddimensional domain.
The location of trait emotional intelligence in personality factor space.
TLDR
The results showed that trait EI is a compound personality construct located at the lower levels of the two taxonomies, and the discussion addresses common questions about the operationalization of emotional intelligence as a personality trait.

TLDR
Overall, it is questionable whether the MEIS operationalizes EI as a reliable and valid construct.

TLDR
Correlations of E PP scales with NEO-PI-R facet scales provided preliminary evidence supporting the convergent and discriminant validity of the EPP scales, but varimax and targeted validimax factor analyses suggested that some EPP scores were misclassified and that EPP Scale could better be understood in terms of the 5-factor model than the intended 3-factor models.
Emotional intelligence: in search of an elusive construct.
TLDR
These data provide controvertible evidence for the existence of a separate Emotion Perception factor that (perhaps) represents the ability to monitor another individual's emotions, narrower than that postulated within current models of emotional intelligence.
The structure of the Eysenck Personality Profiler.
TLDR
Investigation of possible three- and five-factor solutions to the Eysenck Personality Profiler found little evidence to favour one solution over the other, but a shorter version of the EPP seemed to favour a three-factor solution.
