That is why the authors performed a meta-analysis through going through 24 studies that mainly focused on EI healthy adults. The results established that the efficiency of EI training different on different scales, the EI model affected the efficiency and the dimensions of the four-branch model of EI also affected the efficiency. At the end of the research, one conclusive statement made is that “EI training should be considered effective interventions.” The depth of the article is sufficiently comprehensive, there are no deviations, and the article remains on establishing the efficiency of EI trainings. This research will fit in the literature review because it talks about that one aspect that is important about EI, and it is establishing its efficiency.
