Emotional Intelligence Test
Emotional Intelligence is a critical skill for any executive or manager that is making hundreds if not thousands of decisions each day. Becoming a better manager and leader begins with knowing yourself and assessing others quickly so your decisions can be better.
WHAT IS EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE?
A manager’s emotional intelligence (EI) is the emotional thermostat of his team. And without a reliable thermostat, a team’s output will surely see more highs and lows than a roller coaster on a hot summer day in July. That’s why an emotional intelligence test is essential when identifying high potentials, developing Millennials and other future leaders, as well as selecting new leaders.
While there are many descriptions of Emotional Intelligence, this one seems comprehensive but easy to understand:
“The ability to to identify and manage our own emotions and the emotions of others, and ultimately to reason and problem-solve on the basis of them.” Sometimes EI is called emotional quotient, too.

WHAT THE EQ Profile Measures
The EQ Profile is a general indicator of the individual’s ability to recognize and regulate emotions within themselves and in others.
These abilities have been found to be of great importance in various aspects of career success. The Emotional Intelligence literature,
including the pioneering work of Dr. Daniel Goleman, suggests that Emotional Intelligence can be broken down into four domains:
Self-Awareness, Social-Awareness, Self Management and Relationship Management.
The EQ Profile is a reliable measure of these four characteristics.
- Relationship Management measures the degree to which the individual is likely to manage people relationships effectively. The degree to which he/she is team-oriented and collaborative in all aspects of his or her relationships, including working cooperatively with coworkers and customers.
- Self-Awareness measures the degree to which the individual is self confident and feels secure of self. The degree to which he/she uses this demeanor to remain calm and cool under pressure.
- Self-Management measures the degree to which the individual manages self properly. The degree to which he/she is likely to be hardworking, reliable, organized and plans ahead.
- Social Awareness measures the degree to which the individual is caring, empathetic and is service oriented.
