Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand, interpret, and manage your emotions and those of other people. If you have high EQ, you can communicate with others, show empathy when needed, and overcome emotionally-charged situations. This self-assessment questionnaire is designed to get you thinking about the various competencies of emotional intelligence as they apply to you. The competencies include self-awareness (i.e. the ability to recognize what you are feeling, to understand your habitual emotional responses to events, and to recognize how your emotions affect your behaviour and performance), managing emotions (i.e. the ability to stay focused and think clearly even when experiencing powerful emotions.), motivating oneself (i.e. the ability to use your deepest emotions to move and guide you towards your goals), empathy (i.e. the ability to sense, understand and respond to what other people are feeling), and social skill (i.e. the ability to manage, influence and inspire emotions in others).
