Was Jesus Emotionally Intelligent?


I am not sure how Jesus would do on one of the tests which claim to measure EI. But I was just pondering this idea of whether the academic researchers and business consultants would call Jesus emotionally intelligent. Mayer, Salovey and Caruso seem to believe that a person who gets along with the group, conforms to the groups beliefs and values, and doesn't rock the boat is an emotionally intelligent person. (See article) But Jesus was quite rebellious and he ended up being killed for his lack of conformity and obedience to authority.

So what do you think? Was Jesus emotionally intelligent?

Please let me know what you think about this.
