Emotional intelligence (EI) refers to a collection of skills that deal with emotions and emotional data. Organizational scholars have paid close attention
to EI, and research has explained its meaning and illuminated its importance in organizations. The author defines EI and explain the abilities that make
it up in this article. The researcher compared two methods to calculating EI: performance-based and self-report. The validity generalization, situationspecific, and moderator models are used to organize the results of how EI is related to work requirements. The support for the latter two models implies
that, to adequately understand how EI applies to requirements, the organizational background and employee dispositions should be considered. The
author recognizes controversies in this field, explains how findings solve some of them, and suggest future research to address the others. Finally, the
research can be replicated in different Middle East countries to reveal the differences and generalize the results.
