There are several instruments available to assess your EQ. I am certified to administer the Mayer Salovey Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT).* This highly validated test evaluates your emotional abilities by having you complete tasks and solve emotional problems. MSCEIT focuses on four skill sets to identify your specific strengths and areas for improvement:
- Perceiving emotions
- Using emotions
- Understanding emotions
- Managing emotions
