Are these Responses Proof of Emotional Intelligence?
Troy Hussain
Suppose you were to choke while eating and I would bring you a glass of water.
Or if you spilled water, without you having to ask I will hand you a napkin.
I believe these responses from me to your immediate discomfort are appropriate. This is my emotional intelligence being activated to assist you.
 

 
Emotional Intelligence or Just Stimulus - Response
Joe Proops, Student (MBA), United Kingdom, Member
Isn't what you are describing a learnt response from childhood, based on basic stimulus - response. Would you describe this as emotional intelligence or basic learning...?
 

 
Just Stimulus - Response; not Necessarily Emotional Intelligence

I agree with Joe, you could probably teach these things to a person with severe autism or otherwise totally lacking EI.
At the most these examples only prove a very low level of EI.
