When society overvalues non-intelligence factors related to innovation, the research about emotional intelligence and innovation behaviour is very meaningful. Based on the structure equation model, the paper expounds the influence of emotional intelligence’s four dimensions on individual innovation behaviour and explores the mechanism of constructive controversy as a partial mediator. In addition, the samples collected in this paper include the team of the enterprise, the course work of the college students and the innovation competition groups, so the conclusion has extensive application values.
