The model proposes that EI includes 4 types of abilities:

1) Perceiving emotions
- the ability to detect and decipher emotions in faces, pictures, voices, and cultural artifacts- including the ability to identify one’s own emotions. Perceiving emotions represents a basic aspect of emotional intelligence, as it makes all other processing of emotional information possible.

2) Using emotions
- the ability to harness emotions to facilitate various cognitive activities, such as thinking and problem solving. The emotionally intelligent person can capitalize fully upon his or her changing moods in order to best fit the task at hand.

3) Understanding emotions
- the ability to comprehend emotion language and to appreciate complicated relationships among emotions. For example, understanding emotions encompasses the ability to be sensitive to slight variations between emotions, and the ability to recognize and describe how emotions evolve over time.

4) Managing emotions
- the ability to regulate emotions in both ourselves and in others. Therefore, the emotionally     intelligent person can harness emotions, even negative ones, and manage them to achieve intended goals.
