Introduction

Today I did a search to see who might be using my definition of EI. I found a few pages. I am creating this page to document what I found so I might be rightfully credited with the definition. First, here is my definition

Emotional intelligence is the innate potential to feel, use, communicate, recognize, remember, learn from, manage and understand emotions. (source)

Here is a letter I sent and here are some pages I found using my definition as of July 2007. (I first posted it in June of 2005 so you can see it is catching on quickly. ha ha)

Hi Joan

I just found this page today

http://www.lanecc.edu/mpr/news/rel00876.htm

On it is my definition of emotional intelligence

....the concept of emotional intelligence is defined as the innate
potential to feel, use, communicate, recognize, remember, learn from,
manage and understand emotions.

This is from this page of my website

http://eqi.org/eidefs.htm

I am not sure if you wrote the article but I would like to just
establish that it is my definition so things don't get out of control
one day as it possibly is copied around the Internet!

If you could help me out I would appreciate it. I mostly would just
like a letter from you acknowledging that it was my definition, and in
case you are worried about lawsuits that isn't my ulterior motive at
all! I just want to be credited for creating that particular
definition of EI if people use it in the future.

Thanks
