This article examines the relationship between addiction and emotional intelligence using Integral Research. Six of the eight zones of Integral Methodological Pluralism are used in order to investigate the nature of this relationship. Data from each methodology suggest that addiction is correlated with deficits of particular aspects of emotional intelligence, and I conclude that the pro- cesses of addiction and emotional intelligence are ultimately not separate. In addition, I conclude that Emotional Brain Training is an eective way to increase emotional intelligence and alleviate addictive/compulsive behaviors.
