Abstract

MacCann, Joseph, Newman, and Roberts (2014) explored various unidimensional, oblique, hierarchical and bifactor models to suggest that ability EI can represent a distinct set of cognitive abilities that can be placed within existing intelligence frameworks. The current study presents a conceptual replication of these analyses from data collected using alternative (nonproprietary) measures. Using a data set of 830 individuals, the current study provides further evidence to suggest ability EI best represents a hierarchical construct formed of emotion perception, understanding and management factors, structured as a second stratum factor within broader models of cognitive ability.
