        How to measure emotional intelligence?

        When on your own, EQ can be measured through the self-report method. This means taking an online quiz to measure emotional intelligence using scientific tools and instruments. The most empirically established emotional intelligence tests include the Mayer Salovey Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test, Daniel Goleman emotional intelligence quiz, and Baron Cohen Emotional Quotient questionnaire.

        What is emotional IQ?

        Emotional intelligence refers more to one’s emotional self-awareness as well as self-management. EQ is the ability to understand, use, and manage your own emotions in positive ways to relieve stress, communicate effectively, empathize with others, overcome challenges and defuse conflict.
        Emotional intelligence includes the following aspects:
        Emotional Extensity – level of importance of emotions over other aspects of one’s life;
        Utility of Emotions – the ability to use emotions as a source for inspiration, energy, and creativity;
        Social Awareness – the ability to perceive other people’s internal mental states, to understand their feelings and thoughts, and to comprehend the demands of complex social situations;
        Self-Presentation - the ability to present oneself favorably, including in your own eyes.

        What is MSCEIT?

        The Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT) is an ability-based test designed to assess emotional intelligence. It measures the four branches of the EI: Perceiving Emotions, Facilitating Thought, Understanding Emotions, and Managing Emotions. MSCEIT was developed from an intelligence-testing tradition formed by the emerging scientific understanding of emotions and their function.
