Thanks Elizabeth Bouvier-Fitzgerald for your highly appreciated response. Ha! We definitely need intelligence to compose jazz as well. Thanks for buttressing the central theme of my article. We have to distinguish between general intelligence which is foundational, and the plethora of various kinds of intelligences out there of which emotional intelligence is one of them. To me emotional intelligence and intelligence (general) have a very important relationship but they are not siblings; EI is an invaluable child.
