Title: Emotionally Intelligent People Choose More Supportive Partners
Author: Mongrain, Myriam
Amitaya, Oren Aaron
Identifier: 00024
Abstract: Emotionally intelligent people – in other words, people with a greater ability to understand and use their emotions in their day-to-day life – tend to choose romantic partners who are supportive and not critical. The partners of people with high levels of EI are not overbearing in their support. People who tend to suffer from depression may not need as much direct support if they are higher on EI.
