The authors developed a wealth curve (bell curve) that can predict a group of individual’s wealth based on the crossover interaction effect of the average intelligence quotient (one's ability to perform, comprehend and learn) and emotional awareness (emotional ability to recognize and make sense of emotions). To move towards the right on the X-axis of the Kabir wealth curve (e.g. accumulate more wealth), individuals have to improve emotional awareness and choose a professional career path that lands higher income. Similarly, those facing social injustice can accumulate more wealth by improving emotional awareness, which will help them navigate challenging environments.

Comment: The authors' prior study reported the crossover effect of intelligence quotient and emotional awareness on national average income. A very high level of emotional awareness (EA) indicates one can learn from expressed emotions quickly, which helps to solve problems in life by understanding emotions, such as being able to regulate one's emotions and cheer others up when they are feeling low. This emotional awareness (EA) is an essential part of emotional intelligence (EI). The other part of emotional intelligence (EI) is to manage one's emotions to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathically, which was not incorporated in this study. The measuring emotional intelligence scores have unknown psychometric properties (i.e., validity and reliability) and are not well integrated with extant emotional intelligence research. The question remains whether intelligence quotient and emotional awareness will predict a group of individual's income or wealth rank.
