EQ Self-Assessment

In prior blogs, I’ve given you tools for having greater awareness over your emotions. 

Years ago, I found this quiz somewhere on the internet and loved it. Take this EQ quiz to gain a powerful advantage in your personal and professional life. Have an open mind and be curious rather than judgmental about your answers.  Remember, awareness is half the battle toward emotional freedom and self-mastery.

 

EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE SELF ASSESSMENT

 

A simple, workable definition of Emotional Intelligence is the ability to Perceive, Understand, Manage and Use emotions. Taking the emotional intelligence test will be illuminating for most people. The questions simply ask you to consider how well you Perceive, Understand, Manage and Use your own emotions, and how well you perceive the emotions of others. The importance of Emotional Intelligence test, or a gauge of Social Intelligence cannot be over-stated. Of all the intelligences, this is the one that most affects our experience of life and every human relationship we have.
