I suspect that emotional intelligence is another word for intellect.

With ego as the base foundation of the mind and it being not only self centered but crude as well, it requires a good measure of intellect to override some of ego’s rougher edges. Assholes are thus folks deprived any good measure of intellect, which also includes a lack of what is called self-awareness. See my book, A Quick Look at Man and His Universe.
