Test your Emotional Intelligence
This test is meant as an exercise to determine how you score in the four different areas of Emotional Intelligence (EQ). It will help you better understand where your strengths are and where you have an opportunity to focus your personal and professional development efforts, in order to be a great leader, and build successful relationships.
For each question, select the number that applies best to you, between 0 (e.g. Not likely) and 10 (e.g. Very likely). Do not over-analyse the questions, or try to think of "exceptions to the rule". Be spontaneous and choose the number that comes closest to the way you are. The results will be sent to you by email.
The four areas of Emotional Intelligence
Self-Awareness: Describes your capacity to read and understand your emotions as well as recognise their impact on your performance and relationships, to give a realistic evaluation of your strengths and limitations and to build a strong sense of self-worth.
Self-Management: Describes your capacity to keep disruptive emotions and impulses under control, to maintain standards of honesty and integrity, to adapt to changing situations and overcoming obstacles, to meet an internal standard of excellence, and to seize opportunities.
Social Awareness: Describes your capacity to understand others and take an active interest in their concerns, to read the currents of organisational life, to build decision networks and navigate politics as well as recognise and meet others' needs.
Relationship Management: Describes your capacity to inspire and guide groups and individuals, to develop others through feedback and guidance, to exercise a wide range of persuasive strategies with integrity and clear communication, to initiate new ideas and lead people in a new direction, to resolve disagreements and collaboratively develop resolutions, to maintain relationships with others, and to promote cooperation and team building.
