Research units


The aim of this commentary is to contextualize the findings of the study “Emotional intelligence impact on half-marathon finish times” (Rubaltelli et al., 2018), which concluded that trait emotional intelligence predicted half-marathon finish times above and beyond training. The aim of this commentary is to highlight some methodological and interpretation limitations that may undermine the conclusions of this paper. These limitations are concerning the acknowledgement of previous research, the choice of the variables included in the study, and the over speculation of findings with respect to study design.
