After taking the EI test, the Overall results were:
IQ score = 116
Percentile score = 86
By the overall results score, I am fairly skilled at understanding and dealing with emotions. I am reasonably skilled when it comes to the core ability of identifying, perceiving and expressing emotions between myself and other people as well. I’m well aware of the guiding potential of my emotions, and usually tuned into my feelings as a means to direct judgment, reasoning, and actions. Taking the test was easy but trying to understand the purpose of certain questions was the problem. Some questions were hard to answer because you are asked your opinion when it’s difficult to answer because of the situation within the question.
“Emotional Intelligence is an ability to recognize the meanings of emotions and their relationships, and to reason and problem-solve on the basis of them. Emotional Intelligence is involved in the capacity to perceive emotions, assimilate emotion-related feelings, understand the information of those emotions, and manage them” (Queendom, 2013). Emotional Intelligence can be learned and strengthened. Emotional intelligence has a unique combination of intelligence and triumph of head over heart. EI combines affect with cognition and emotions with intelligence and helps you solve problems.
Emotional Intelligence is not a substitute for ability, knowledge or job skill, it is hypothesized to enhance outcomes.
