The fact that cognitive skills can be measured, and non-cognitive skills are simply monitored the way that they relate to emotional intelligence (EI) differ slightly. In my personal opinion cognitive skills are not what it takes to deal with emotional intelligence which is made up of the following five dimensions self-awareness, self-management, self-motivation and empathy all of which can not be measured. That is why I believe that in order to deal with EI our non-cognitive skills come into play. The act of dealing in social settings, feeling what others feel and having the ability to see that someone truly does not believe in their self is a skill that most managers need. In order to see that someone does not see what you see in them and be able to pull that out of them goes a long way in managing.
