There are three scientific methods of measuring Emotional Intelligence: ability-based performance, self-ratings, and multi-perspective ratings of one’s EI potential. Xponents uses the EQ-i2.0 Self-Assessment and the Multi-Perspective EQ-360®.
Self-ratings of EI potential ask people how they would perform in a given situation. Unlike ability-based measures where people perform tasks to show their skills, respondents rate their own EI skill use. The assessments measure self-perception, self-expression, interpersonal, decision making, and stress management aspects of EI.
Multi-perspective ratings provide the broadest view on emotional intelligence. An individual’s emotional intelligence is rated by members of some or all of the following professional and personal associates: managers, peers, direct reports, clients, and family or friends.
