WHEREAS
Intelligence is a Thing
Personality Traits are a Thing. (Conscientiousness and Agreeableness and Neuroticism in particular)
The Solipsism vs Empathy vs Autism spectrum is a Thing.
Class Behaviors are a Thing.

As such it’s (EQ) a questionable proxy for personality traits rather than intelligence. And (I am in the camp) that we should treat intelligence as a personality trait.

AND WHEREAS
Higher IQ people are demonstrably more moral than Low IQ people – yes. Although (a) they can afford to be, and (b) they are also less likely to have other defective personality traits and cultural/class behaviors.

THEREFORE
So the problem is that people who argue scientifically know EQ is not a thing but pseudoscience that attributes an equality to intelligence to behavioral properties, when in general even intelligence should be classified as a personality trait, and it is personality traits in toto that determine behavior.

AND THEREFORE
So what is going on when we criticize use of EQ, is fighting a common problem we deal with in leftism, whether or not one is actually arguing a leftist position, but using the pseudoscientific language of leftists.

IN OTHER WORDS
Either learn to use the relevant personality traits or at least recognize you are talking in pseudoscientific nonsense terms.

Curt.
