Technology is worthless unless you have people who are able to interpret it.  For example, if you have fancy technology that can represent threats, you need people who can sort through them to determine where the real threats are and how to react to them.

How do we train agents to develop and utilize their emotional intellingence?

In what ways does emotional intelligence fill gaps left by technology?

Is it likely that future technological advances will outpace the ability of terrorists to circumvent security measures?

There are many subquestions that would have to be addressed as you answer this question.  Many of them are similar to those from your other questions.  Among them are:

  • What, exactly, is emotional intelligence?
  • How do we measure people's emotional intelligence in a way that is both reliable and valid?
  • How do we determine what is "important" for Homeland Security?  
  • How do we determine which impacts on Homeland Security come from emotional intelligence and which come from advances in technology?

The last two of these are the most important and the most difficult to answer in any valid way.
