A problem is it doesn’t explain why there are people with high body fat but have good quality relationships. Unless you can prove that every relationship with overweight people is a low-quality relationship. Good luck with that. A nutritionally deprived, high glycemic diet is going to make things difficult, regardless of how great your social relationships are. People think they are eating healthy and are disciplined at it but still, pack on weight. That’s another thing to consider also. By no means am I saying this isn’t an issue? It’s just not the only issue.

It’s a big problem these days, people keep coming up with single reason explanations for problems that seem to have multivariate factors. One more thing isn’t a very psychometrically valid construct. Beware of anyone who claims otherwise, it’s not self-evident exactly what they mean because many attempts to define it haven’t really yielded any predictive validity. Not to say it doesn’t exist, just at the moment, psychologists don’t seem to know how to measure it yet.
You could define it to be an awareness of the interplay between your emotions and behavior that allows you to transcend more primitive responses to life’s circumstances and gain more control and acceptance over yourself. That seems to be more or less a good definition for the intrapersonal aspect of EQ. However, I would think there’s also an interpersonal element that would include things like empathy, social skills, etc. those get tough to measure though.
