This paper will establish that a productive working relationship can be enhanced in an Extreme Programming (XP) Pair-Programming Team if Team members here were to develop and improve their own individual Emotional Intelligence (EI) persona. A conceptual model (ARMES) was developed for personal traits identified for Pair-Programmers. The validity of this ARMES model for Pair-Programming was tested against two (previously published) XP Case Studies. Finally, implications of the conclusions were discussed along with suggested areas of future research.
