Most people will experience some form of disordered eating in their lifetime (Hudson, Hiripi, Pope, & Kessler, 2007). Hudson and colleague’s research found that those who suffer from subthreshold disordered eating can still experience a considerable amount of suffering despite not being formally diagnosed with an eating disorder. Low levels of both trait EI and ability EI have been related to disordered eating across the literature. It is suggested that these EI impairments play “a role in predisposing and perpetuating eating disorder onset” (Foye, Hazlett, & Irving, 2018, p. 3). The trait EI model and can be broadly described as a collection of personality traits related to emotions (Petrides, 2011). The ability model proposes that EI is related to abilities involved in the processing of emotional information (Mayer & Salovey, 1997). The results of the current study found trait EI to significantly predict disordered eating severity, but ability EI did not.
