We-ell, all definitions on EQ that I've heard focus on abilities like
understand your and other peoples feelings and acting from this
understanding. A high EQ certainly do not necessarily imply an "emotional"
personality type (on the contrary, a person who reg'larly goes
hysterical/ecstatic/hyperaggressive presumeably have bad control and
understanding of his/her feelings and thus a low EQ).
