Every Hiring Manager/person that I have ever known wants Stability and Reliability over anything else.
To that end I want people who will be there at work not some genius who will be great when they are at work but it's unknown how often they will show up for work.
The same applies to EI people great if they are but give me someone who is reliable every time.
My perfect worker is Brilliant, Emotional Intelligence and the important thing is always shows up for work in the morning.
Personally I wouldn't employ myself as I need reliable staff over people who know what they are doing and can deal with everyone that they interact with. I would much prefer to have reliable people who I can train to do their job and train how to work with people who at best are difficult over the Brilliant Person who can do it all but may only be available 1 week in 3.
That is what you'll find all Employers want in any promoted or new staff that they take on. The problem with the above link is that the question asked was deliberately structured to get the answer that the people asking the question wanted. Another example of "Lies, Bloody Lies and then you have Statistics."
