In examining emotional intelligence one must understand what exactly it means. Emotional intelligence is the ability to express, control and recognize one’s own emotions while also being able to handle interpersonal relationships with empathy (Kotze & Venter). Emotional intelligence on the surface may seem like an inherent talent or trait but as Kotze and Venter explain in their study it can be a learned and measureable trait.

A task is then given to the learners in first year where they reflect on their perceptions about their own emotional intelligence and how to address their strength and weaknesses. Learners later in the year assess themselves that whether or not they have improved on the emotional intelligence or not.

Author however did not discuss if this process of building on emotional intelligence is continued throughout the following years of undergrad education or not. In my opinion, adult learners work best when the relevancy of the task is evident to them hence this process should be continued in subsequent years and clinical
